A high-performance wide angle prime lens for the entire E-Mount range
Usable on all Sony E-Mount cameras, this wide-angle prime lens packs huge performance into a not so big lens barrel, much like the other gear in the Sony Compact System range. On the high-performance full-frame range the 28mm focal length of this lens is a favoured length of landscape photographers in particular, whereas the 42m equivalent focal length offered to APS-C users is on the wide end of the normal range - suited to a host of applications and a popular day-to-day choice.
Flexibility and creativity
One of the best things about a quality prime lens like this offering from Sony, is the fact that you will find yourself shooting more and more images, in varied conditions. The fast f2 maximum aperture of the Sony 28mm further emphasises this flexibility, allowing you to explore all types of lighting, from the darkest interior to the bright outdoors. Where previously you would have left your camera at home in its carry bag due to a perceived inability to accurately capture the moment, the 28mm will have you happily shooting with limitless success. The wide aperture lets in more light than a lesser lens, resulting in sharper images, and the shallow depths of field created will have you exploring a creative side that you never knew you had - the Sony 28mm f2 will make a better photographer out of you, purely as it is so much fun to use!
A quality construction
Fitting in with the rest of its Sony Alpha E-Mount family, the 28mm f2 has been constructed with care, in terms of both build and optical quality. Physically the lens features a rugged dust and moisture resistant design, allowing you to use it wherever the road takes you, which once again means more photographs are taken with a higher success rate. Optically the lens features Extra-low dispersion glass and aspherical elements, which limit the appearance of various aberrations and improve the colour accuracy and contrast within your pictures. For added benefits the ED glass has been multi-coated which means flare and ghosting has also been drastically reduced. The result of all of this technology, is a lens that is a joy to use, that may just help you to take the most treasured photographs of your life so far.
