A 35mm lens with a wide maximum aperture is a classic choice for a wide range of applications. With a wide but still mostly neutral focal length and lots of light-gathering and subject-isolating power, it is equally at home in the studio, at a wedding, or on the street. For Sony shooters, the top option is the FE 35mm f/1.4 GM, and this excellent video review takes a long-term look at the lens and how its price, performance, and image quality stand up to other options.
Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video takes a long-term look at the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM lens. As one of Sony’s G Master lenses, the FE 35mm f/1.4 GM has a range of advanced features, including:
- Two extreme aspherical elements for less astigmatism, field curvature, and distortion and better sharpness
- One extra-low dispersion element for reduced chromatic aberration
- Nano AR Coating II for less flares and ghosting and deeper contrast
- Dual XD Linear motors for speedy and quiet autofocus
- Customizable focus hold button
- De-clickable aperture ring for video work
- Dust- and moisture-sealed construction and fluorine coating on front element
- Rounded 11-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
