The Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens squeezes exceptional quality into an extraordinarily compact body that weighs only 120g. The Sonnar design benefits from Zeiss's optical technology with three double-sided aspherical to provide the fast f/2.8 aperture with minimal aberrations. The Zeiss' T* anti-reflective coating eliminates flare and ghosting, whilst the linear autofocus motor and internal focusing design results in fast, quiet and responsive performance in stills and video. The lens uses a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh and has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction.

m-Trekker BP 150 mirrorless camera backpack is a practical backpack ideal for the trendy photographer.
This superb wide-angle prime remains true to the original Sonnar® concept with a bright f/2.8 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.. A perfect match for Sony α7 Series full frame bodies, with outstanding optical performance in a versatile 35mm 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. , this Zeiss lens delivers superior 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). and resolution throughout the image.
The small size, versatile 35mm focal length, and outstanding performance of this Zeiss Sonnar T* lens make it an ideal match for compact 35mm full-frame format E-mount bodies.
Three double-sided aspherical elements effectively control spherical aberration, while the Zeiss T* coating minimises flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting for great colour and contrast.
A new focus lens group design achieves a larger f/2.8 maximum aperture in a compact lens, while a circular aperture design delivers gorgeous bokeh for smoothly defocused backgrounds.
A dust and moisture resistant design means that the lens will function smoothly and reliably in a wide range of conditions and challenging environments.
Legendary ZEISS® quality manufactured and calibrated specifically for Sony imaging products. The T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast.
MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.
