This Sony Macro lens designed for E-mount cameras is perfect for exploring close-up photographs of small, detailed objects. A 1:1 magnification ratio means it captures minute objects in life-size on the image sensor - perfect for exploring the finest of details with incredible accuracy. The compact and lightweight Sony 30mm f3.5 Macro lens is a great option for a day wandering through the botanical gardens, seeing what nibute lifeforms you can investigate.
Versatile focal length - great for snapshots!
This Sony prime lens is not limited to a life shooting close-up objects, and users will find just as much use for it as a general purpose lens. The 30mm focal length is a “normal” equivalent when mounted on an APS-C format camera, meaning it provides a field of view similar to what the human eye sees. This common field of view makes the lens usable for a wide range of applications, including Landscapes, snapshots and travel. This is the type of lens that you can feel comfortable leaving on your camera for long day trips, excellent for Macro work, but just as ready to capture any other subject you may encounter.
Further enhancing its usability for a range of shooting scenarios, the Sony 30mm f3.5 Macro lens features Smooth, fast and quiet AF performance - the kind that renders it useful for capturing HD quality videos. Focus performance is exceptionally accurate, allowing it to pinpoint subjects with minimal effort, but if you are wanting to perform some fine-tuning, this lens feature Direct Manual Focus, allowing you to grab the easy to grip focus ring and make any necessary adjustments without changing a setting or mode.
For all-day shooting you can't go wrong with this compact and lightweight prime lens, which features a form factor much in keeping with the rest of the Sony Compact system range. Lightweight so as not to tire you out through a day of shooting, this lens has a large f3.5 maximum aperture rating, allowing you to keep shooting hand-held images in low light conditions, maintaining a consistent level of image sharpness and leaving your heavy tripod at home.
