"This Is My Next Lens."

Sony’s recent introduction of the new 35mm f/1.8 prime to its full-frame lens lineup gives photographers high-resolution and large aperture in a compact and lightweight package. It’s promising to become a top choice for many photographers, and Chris Gampat (The Phoblographer) is already declaring it as his next, and probably most favorite lens in his review.

“I’m pretty head over heels for the Sony 35mm f/1.8 FE. The company found a way to make a great middle ground lens while also holding true to the original ideals of mirrorless: to be small.” – Chris Gampat, The Phoblographer

“I’m pretty head over heels for the Sony 35mm f/1.8 FE. The company found a way to make a great middle ground lens while also holding true to the original ideals of mirrorless: to be small. This lens is small, lightweight, weather sealing, fast to focus, and can deliver excellent image quality. For the photographers that need speed like street photographers, event photographers, and documentary shooters–it’s there. For those that want details and beautiful bokeh like portrait shooters, it’s also there. Combine this with the reliability put into the lens with weather sealing, and you’re getting a winning combination. Then price it at under $1,000, and you’re getting a lens that every photographer should have.”

“The Sony 35mm f1.8 FE is winning our Editor’s Choice award. I’m going to buy one, and this is probably going to be my next favorite lens.”
