35mm prime lenses are a staple for many photographers. The angle of view provided by this focal length is one of the most comfortable and versatile on both 35mm full frame format and APS-C format cameras, and with that, this lens can be used for anything from close-ups to landscapes. The SAL35F14G, with its superb optics and large F1.4 maximum aperture, is one of the finest fast 35mm lenses in its class. In 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. You can shoot wide open in low light knowing that the entire scene will be captured with equally superb clarity and contrast. The large maximum aperture and circular aperture design are also an advantage when you want to isolate your subject from a busy background, for example, allowing you to defocus unwanted detail so your subject stands out.
