From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Full-frame E-mount Prime Lens

The small size, versatile 35mm focal length, and outstanding overall performance of this Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens make it an ideal match for compact 35mm full frame format E-mount bodies. Although the optical design is state-of-the-art, this superb wide angle lens remains true to the original Sonnar concept with a bright F2.8 maximum aperture (“Sonne” means “sun” in German). Three double-sided aspherical elements minimize aberration so that stunning contrast and resolution are maintained right out to the image edges at all apertures. The renowned T* lens coating contributes to natural color reproduction as well.

Technology

Circular Aperture
Aspherical lens elements
Carl Zeiss T* (T-star) coating

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

Aspherical lens elements

Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped “aspherical” elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight. Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements are an evolved variant, featuring an extremely high thickness ratio between the center and periphery. AA elements are exceedingly difficult to produce, relying on the most advanced molding technology to consistently and precisely achieve the required shape and surface accuracy, resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality.

Carl Zeiss T* (T-star) coating

Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss - and this superb lens features the Carl Zeiss T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. Not simply applied to any lens - the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality.


Additional Features

Internal focusing

Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter.

Dust and Moisture Resistant

The dust and moisture resistance design makes this lens appropriate for heavy-duty outdoor use, especially when combined with a camera that employs weather resistant measures.

Using this lens on an A7 camera.

This is an initial assessment, as I've only owned the lens/camera combo for a few days now. But I feel I've taken enough shots to give a reasonable first impression.

First, I find the build quality quite high. The lens feels sturdy, and is made of metal. The fact that it's weather sealed is a bonus that cannot be ignored in this area as well. The focusing ring moves smoothly, and is just shy of being too stiff, which is to say the action is very good but not excellent (for me). Lens hood is well-designed, and its diminutive size keeps you from ever wanting to remove it.
On the A7, this lens is extremely compact, and the couple compares favorably to say, an Olympus E-M1 with the 17mm f1.8 lens. Given this fact, I don't mind that the widest aperture is only 2.8.

The autofocus of the lens is quite fast. While I don't have anything to compare it to on the A7, I will say that in congress, the couple makes quite the speedy pair, especially in good light. When things get dim, it tends to hunt just a bit more, but really not too much. Compared to an Oly E-M5 with the 17mm 1.8, the combo is a bit slow, but not so much that I'm particularly worried about it.

I find the resolution of the lens to be excellent. The center is already very, very good from 2.8, and stopping down to f4 brings it tack sharp. The edges are slightly behind, but not by much, and stopping down will yield very sharp images across the frame.

The vignetting characteristic of the lens is a little on the high side at f2.

superb, sharp lens. I recently also bought the sigma 35mm f1.4 with the sony laea4 adapter, when comparing the 2 on paper. The sigma should be better but the CZ blows it away in sharpeness and over all usability. Its very light, a pleasure to carry around and take pics. Also with the sigma + laea4 combo i noticed a lot of purple fringing.

This is a wonderful sharp lens and a good start to the E-mount lenses that Sony is making for full frame cameras. It has an odd hood on it and I observed vignetting with it when the hood is on but no vignetting was noted with the hood off. The hood protects the lens quite nicely but it is inverted inward. The lens is made of a high quality plastic. I am a Canon user and at first the plastic was hard to get used to but it is very light weight (which I love) and the lens is smooth to use. The lens hood has a perfect fit and is locked on solidly when it is put on. With this lens on, my camera fits neatly into my purse and makes the Sony A7R easy to carry as a pocket camera.
I am not seeing any chromatic aberrations but am still in the process of testing the lens. I have the Sony RX1 and feel that this lens is comparable to the lens on the RX1. I am hoping that Sony comes out with an ultra wide angle lens soon…..but for now, this is a good start……..

This lens is very very sharp on my A7. Only minimal vignetting and corners sharpness is very good. The center is great. The lens is light and small, auto focus is very fast. I can see why they decided on an f2.8 as part of a travel or carry around kit; this makes the camera very portable with not much compromise except in extremely low light. Awesome!

Beautiful and quaint lens. I have no complaints beyond some occasional green fringing when wide open. Would have been nice to have OSS but not sure it's necessary at this focal length paired with the 2.8

There is not much to say about the lens, you can find plenty of good reviews all over the Internet, DxO, PhotoZone, LensCore have also pretty high scores for the lens. Some people may complain the lens is not fast enough (f/2.8) but I think it's a prefect ratio of the size and speed for the small E-mount cameras. For a wide angle landscape shots you won't even need f/2.8, I would say f/8 is the starting point, if you want something like star effect - f/22 is a good choice. The AF speed is also quite fast on the A7r. I also use this lens on the A6000 as a standard focal distance lens (~52mm), and at f/2.8 it delivers good shallow DoF and a pleasant bokeh.

I'll keep this one short and sweet: Great lens, worth every penny, I recommend it and consider it a MUST if you own the a7/r.

Why?
+Great build quality, weather sealed, durable, I like the lens hood/cap and it has a great look and feel. A pleasure to use.
+Smooth focus ring, just the exact amount of resistance
+Very portable, matches perfectly with the a7/r
+Fast focus
+Great for all around photography, street photography, hanging out, etc. Very versatile
+Sharp throughout most of the frame
+It's not a 1.8F (I wish), but because you are shooting with the a7, the full-frame allows you to get some nice bokeh if you isolate your subject with a distant background.

Last but not least: It is a Zeiss! the elegant colors it produces can not be matched (in my opinion) by other lenses. I have gotten some really unique images with this lens. The way a lens "feels" is a very important characteristic for me, this lens feels spectacular and it has just the right size and weight to match the a7, this makes me want to grab the camera and frame something in an artistic way, the results have been awesome! I highly recommend it!
