An excellent choice as a second lens to supplement a basic lens kit, this full-frame 28 mm wide-angle prime features a bright f/2 maximum aperture and outstanding overall optical performance. Advanced optics deliver excellent sharpness right out to the image edges, plus beautifully smooth bokeh when needed. A maximum aperture of f/2 makes it easier to shoot clear handheld images indoors or in dim lighting. An inner focus mechanism achieves stable, quiet autofocus operation ideal for movies as well as stills. For even wider perspectives, an optional 21 mm Ultra-wide Converter and 16 mm Fisheye Converter with full 180° (diagonal) coverage are available for extra expressive potential.

Add a bright 28mm prime to your kit

Satisfy your wide-angle fix on your full-frame E-mount camera with the fast and compact Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens. It boasts a fast maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. of f/2 for selective focus effects and for working in low-light conditions. In order to ensure high-quality imaging in a range of conditions, the lens incorporates three aspherical elements, including one Advanced Aspherical, and two extra-low dispersion elements, all of which help minimise aberrations. For fast, responsive focusing the 28mm uses a linear motor and internal focus design. Also, this Sony Alpha prime wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties. has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction that will permit operation in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Additionally, this E-mount lens for Sony mirrorless has a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh.. If you are looking for a wider perspective, the 28mm can accept optional ultra-wide and fisheye converters that will transform the lens into a 21mm or 16mm lens, respectively.

Prime lensPRIME LENSA photographic lens used as an (1) alternative, fixed focal length alternative to a zoom lens or, (2) more traditionally, as the primary lens in a combination lens system. In the first sense, a prime lens is known for having a larger maximum aperture and consequently offers greater shutter speeds, having advanced optics and weighing less than zoom lenses, albeit less flexible, because of their simpler construction with less moving parts. In the second sense, a prime lens refers to the primary lens when paired with other optical devices. A prime lens's focal length is fixed and the photographer is required to move closer or further to achieve the correct image composition. resolution and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones).

A fixed focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. design with 3 aspherical elements including an AA (advanced aspherical) lens and 2 ED elements, plus multi-coating throughout, packs outstanding optical performance into a compact lens.


Smooth, expressive bokeh

A 9-blade circular aperture works with this lens’s large aperture to produce smooth, beautiful background bokeh.
