There's a very good reason why 35mm is one of the most popular focal lengths for use on APS-C format cameras. The full-frame equivalent focal length is 52.5mm, providing "normal" perspective–similar to that experienced with the naked eye. The angle of view is suitable for an extremely wide range of subjects while the large f/1.8 maximum aperture is bright enough to allow hand-held shooting in low light and capable of producing smooth defocusing effects that can add depth and artistic elegance to your images.
Please note: DT lenses are not recommended for use with full frame cameras.
In combination with the in-body image stabilization provided by α series cameras, the bright F1.8 maximum aperture of this lens offers a significant advantage for hand-held shooting in low-light situations. The high resolution of this prime lens and the smooth defocusing achieved by its large F1.8 aperture can be utilized to create images that have impressive depth and three-dimensionality
At 0.23 meters the minimum focusing the SAL35F18 makes it possible to move in for spectacular close-ups. The front filter mount does not rotate when the lens focuses, and this is a distinct advantage for polarizing filter use. A distance scale is also provided.
Autofocus signals received from the camera body control a motor built into the lens. The internal motor directly drives the focusing group for smooth autofocus operation.
