The Sony 35mm f/1.8 DT SAM may be a budget-oriented prime lens but regarding its performance it may even be a viable option for enthusiasts. Resolution-wise it delivers a very solid performance.
Optically the Sony DT 1.8/35 is very similar to the Nikkor 1.8/35. Both instruments’ results are very much alike – when it comes to the resolution they are splendid or good in the centre and also on the edge of the frame. In other categories sometimes one is better sometimes the other.
excellent image quality in the frame centre,, good image quality on the edge of the frame (apart from the maximum aperture),, well-corrected lateral chromatic aberration,, relatively low distortion,, decent work against bright light.
lens’s barrel and mount are made of plastics,, weak image quality on the edge of the frame near the maximum aperture,, average autofocus,, noticeable coma,, the highest vignetting in this class of equipment.
The DT 35mm f/1.8 SAM (SAL35F18) was one of three new lenses announced by Sony in July, 2010. Designed to provide an affordable, compact and lightweight prime lens with a popular focal length for both entry-level and advanced photographers it's less than one fifth of the price of Sony's other 35mm...
I was skeptical at first when I saw this, but I decided to make the purchase. I'm glad I did, this lens is great at a fabulous price. Very pleased with the results, it's great for portraits. You will not be disappointed!
This lens works great. I purchased this specifically for certain types of shots on a set, and the lens works perfectly for that application. Many lenses work well with certain parameters in certain situations and not so well otherwise, and this is no different.
I was wanting a small, fast lens capable of taking high quality indoor photos without flash. The SAL-35F18 lens fit the bill. Photos are tack sharp in the center and corner sharpness is also very good when stopped down slightly. It also focuses quickly and accurately.
Small, light, excellent image quality, fast accurate focusing
Max aperture of f1.8 only available in A & M modes
I owned it and shoot with my A77 : - Focusing with SAM motor : a bit noisy, not fast for action but accurate for most of the cases - Plastic built : looks cheap and the cost is cheap indeed - I recommend you to try some chose-up shots ( at about 0.30m ), you will be amazed by the result even at the...
Excellent sharpness, light (170gr), fast aperture for low light hand held
This little lens can produce fantastic images (in terms of sharpness, CA, light fall off, bokeh, etc); all despite of its very affordable price. That said, it's made of plastic and feels rather cheap and fragile in your hands, but if you think about its retail price...
Image Quality, Size, Price
Used this 35mm lens on an A55. Creates beautifully soft images when wide open @ 1.8 fstop with center area remaining sharp in low light. At around 5.6 fstop and up, corners become very much as crisp as the center.
great as my first prime lens to move my skills a bit further
fantastic clarity and quality, even if it does feel a little plasticy! tiny little lens, and i think on my crop-sensor body it acts more like a 50mm than a 35mm.
Awsome portrait lens. Used it for recent couple of trips and pics came out superb. Used it most of the time on manual focus though, but auto focus was also spot on. Color render was as expected, sharpness even in corners were grt. Not a professional photographer but this lens made me look like one.
work well and great price work well for a wide angle fix zoom lens. Great for a quick photo
