Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Review and Test Results

Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA vs. Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A vs. Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA comparison.

From DxOMark conclusion:

Although the Zeiss FE Sonnar T* 35mm f2.8 ZA doesn’t have the consistent performance and sharpness in the outer field of its sibling the ZE Sonnar T* 55mm f1.8 ZA, the fact that it is very close to the Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM A in IQ (over the same aperture range) is a plus. On the downside, it lacks that model’s versatility in low light, naturally, but at least it’s a fraction of the size and weight and complements the small size and inherent portability of the A7 models.

Zeiss Sonnar FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens offers a fixed 35mm focal length and bright f/2.8 aperture. The lens features seven elements in five groups including three double-sided aspherical elements to minimize aberration, and is dust- and moisture-resistant.

Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens is currently priced for $798.
