Compact, lightweight fixed F1.8 lens
This compact, large-aperture, fixed focal length lens has a focal length of 52.5 mm (35 mm equivalency) and is approximately 1-3/4” (45mm) long. Compact and easy to carry around, this bright lens makes an ideal “second lens” with the capability to handle a wide variety of shooting situations — from landscapes and snaps around town to lovely portraits with beautiful background blur.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.
Silent and smooth focusing for shooting movies
The quiet, high-speed linear motor in SEL-35F18 controls focus while an in-lens stepping motor in the actuator controls the aperture. Together they provide extremely quiet operation and smooth focusing as well as quiet and fluid aperture control. These motors are ideal for shooting video since they eliminate the worry of excessive lens-drive noise.
