As a G Master lens, this FE 35mm f/1.4 utilizes Sony’s most advanced optical technologies, including XA elements and low dispersion glass, to render imagery with a high degree of sharpness, accuracy, and clarity. A Nano AR II coating has also been applied, which has been specifically formulated for larger curved element designs, and suppresses flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for increased contrast and color fidelity.

Beyond excellent optics, the G Master design also translates to apt mechanics, including a quick and quiet autofocus system that employs a pair of XD linear motors and an internal focusing design for responsive and precise performance. This focusing system also contributes to Sony’s Linear Response manual focus control, which offers more natural haptics when manually focusing. The lens is weather-sealed, too, and has a protective fluorine coating on the outer elements to guard against smudging. The lens’s portable design also integrates a manual aperture ring, which can be de-clicked for smooth, silent adjustments, and additionally features a focus hold button for intuitive control.
