Superb optics and a large f/1.4 maximum aperture with superb G Lens construction and an aspherical lens element contribute to low-distortion image quality right up to the f/1.4 maximum aperture.
The angle of view provided by this focal length is one of the most comfortable and versatile on both 35mm full frame format and APS-C format cameras, and with that, this lens can be used for anything from close-ups to landscapes. With its superb optics and large f/1.4 maximum aperture, this is one of the finest fast 35mm lenses in its class. No-compromise G Lens construction and quality includes an aspherical lens element that contributes to consistently superior, low-distortion image quality right up to the f/1.4 maximum aperture.
Ultra-Bright f1.4 Aperture
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony ± (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in very low light.
In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- which improves handling ease.
Focus Hold Button
For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.
Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens
Improves optical stability and precision in creating sharper, more visually accurate images with minimal distortion even at fully open aperture.
Superb prime lens quality for low light
An F1.4 maximum aperture makes this superb lens ideal for snapshots and ambient-light photography while providing extended depth-of-field control. The ability to create smooth bokeh makes it great for portraits too. Another advantage of a large maximum aperture is that higher shutter speeds can be used when shooting fast action.
Sharp, high-contrast imagery
Premium G Lens optics, including molded aspherical glass elements, achieve consistently high resolution and contrast right down to the lens’s bright F1.4 maximum aperture. All types of aberration are effectively suppressed too, so that natural, life-reproduction of delicate gradations and details is achieved.
From super sharp to gorgeous bokeh
A 9-blade circular aperture works with this lens’s F1.4 maximum aperture to produce beautifully smooth background bokeh with natural highlights when desired. Smooth background defocusing can make the in-focus focus really stand out in images with almost three-dimensional depth.
Compact, manageable, and versatile
In addition to a remarkably compact, manageable design, this lens includes a convenient focus hold button right on the lens barrel, and an auto-clutch that prevents the focus ring from rotating when autofocus is used.
