so 3.5mm longer and 80g heavier than 24GM.Superlative resolution in a compact lens
Sony’s advanced optical design and manufacturing technology brings extraordinary resolution, gorgeous bokeh, and precision focus performance to a compact lens that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, weighing a mere 524 grams and measuring just 76 mm dia. x 96 mm with a filter diameter of Φ67mm. The FE 35mm F1.4 GM boasts advanced optical technology that delivers stunning contrast and superb resolution. Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements effectively maintain superb resolution throughout the image area. The compact 35mm lens is not only mobile and manageable, it performs admirably in difficult lighting. An ED glass element and other optical refinements effectively suppress chromatic aberration and purple fringing for breathtaking results.
Advanced focus for enhanced imagery
Two of Sony’s XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors provide the high thrust efficiency needed for precise AF (autofocus) and tracking – resulting in outstanding resolution at any distance. State-of-the-art control algorithms, developed specifically for the XD Linear Motors, improve control response and precision whilst minimizing vibration and noise for fast, smooth and silent AF performance. Advanced focusing can also be achieved when shooting at a high frame rate.
Linear Response MF is ideal for creative focusing effects when shooting video as it ensures the focus ring responds to subtle control when focusing manually. The focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise.
Beautiful bokeh for broad expressive capability
The FE 35mm F1.4 GM delivers an almost circular aperture thanks to its 11-blade construction – a rare level of quality for a mobile lens. Painstaking spherical aberration control at both the design and the manufacturing stages contributes to beautiful G Master bokeh that make subjects really stand out.
Two innovative XA elements allow for impossibly impressive close-ups with Smooth, creAmy backgRound bokeh. The combination of F1.4 maximum aperture and the flexibility to choose the perfect shooting distance (minimum focusing distance of just 27cm with a maximum magnification of 0.23x in autofocus mode) allows for ultimate control and stunning bokeh when shooting both stills and video.
that's really amazing if it matches the optical performance.
