Product Description

Product Description


The ultimate standard DSLR lens-with ultra-bright f1.4 performance. With its 35mm-equivalent 52.5mm focal length, the superb SAL-35F14G lens closely reproduces the natural angle of vision of the human eye making it ideal for both general photo-imaging and fine-art photography applications where zoom capability might distract you from concentrating on aesthetic properties of your subject.

FEATURES:
  • Ultra-Bright f1.4 Aperture - In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony α (Alpha) DSLR cameras, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in very low light.
  • Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens - Improves optical stability and precision in creating sharper, more visually accurate images with minimal distortion even at fully open aperture.
  • Focus Hold Button - For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.
  • Auto Clutch - In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate--which improves handling ease.
SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES:
  • Front and rear lens cap
  • SH0001 petal lens hood
  • Lens carrying case

35mm F1.4 G Prime Lens

With its superb optics and large F1.4 maximum aperture, the SAL135F14G is one of the finest fast 35mm lenses in its class. I n addition to no-compromise G Lens construction and quality throughout, it features an optical design that includes an aspherical lens element that contributes to consistently superior, low-distortion image quality right up to the F1.4 maximum aperture.

Technology

Circular Aperture
Aspherical lens elements
Focus hold button

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.

Focus hold button

Once you’ve adjusted focus to where you want it, pressing this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera’s custom settings.

Distance encoder

Distance encoder

The distance encoder plays an integral part in ADI flash metering, which delivers high precision flash metering that is unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds. The distance encoder is a lens component that directly detects the position of the focusing mechanism, and sends a signal to the CPU in order to measure distance to the subject. During flash photography, this data is very useful in calculating how much flash output is appropriate to the scene.

Additional Features

Rear focusing elements

Only the rear groups of the optical system move to focus the lens, which allows for speedy AF operation and a shorter minimum focusing distance. Since the front of the lens does not rotate, operability is improved when shooting with a polarizing filter attached.

By G. Powell on February 4, 2013
I bought my copy of this lens used at a minor discount from new to use as a video lens with my a33. Yes I don't own a FF camera, but I will within the lifetime of my owning this lens hence I'm only buying lens which can be used on both cameras. I also have a 50mm F1.7 Minolta lens which I like a lot but I'm shooting some videos inside and with this camera the more light the better for inside. I've also got the Sony 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 which I love for vacations. Yes it's a bit slow but low light shots, but I tend to shoot mostly outdoors stuff when on vacation and I got it used at a very good price. Yes I'd only buy Zeiss glass if I were richer but I'm not and the reviews of the 24-105.

So why buy a 35mm F1.4 prime for an Aps-c camera? Well you may disagree but I like the portrait shots it gives me. And with the a33 in video mode you have no control over the aperture, the camera uses all the light and adjusts the frame speed and ISO automatically so to get decent inside video you need more glass. With the 50mm I have to stand too far back to pick up the sound. (I have a directional mike that mounts on the camera)

Plus it's only a matter of time before FF cameras become affordable for us mere mortals and then I'll upgrade and keep all my glass.

This lens incorporates traditional Minolta lens design philosophy: emphasize the character and feeling that a lens produces rather than focusing on sheer maximization of micro-contrast. The rendering provided at wide apertures delivers a surreal quality, without any "bite"...almost like watercolors.

The smaller (and cheaper, if you can find it) Minolta 35mm f/2 will deliver an edge in sharpness at f/2, but it does so in a more clinical fashion...and it won't go to f/1.4.

The best lens I can compare this to is the 100mm f/2 Minolta lens, which explains why it is even rarer still.

There's probably a reason why there are none of these for sale used here.

The price was great and I was pleasantly surpised that the refurbished lens seemed to be brand new.
