Sony 35 1.8f Portrait samples needed
Feb 18, 2013


I am currently thinking about purchasing the 35mm 1.8 Sony lens. I currently have the Nex-5 with the 16 and 18-50 kit lenses, but would like to have something faster.

My main goals for the lens would be taking picture with a blurry background of people and low light shots of people, buildings and probably city landscapes. It is quite obvious that a fast 1.8 lens will be great for the low light situations, but I am having trouble finding portrait examples with the blurry background. I am looking for a variety of shots with just the head, a bit of body and half body with backgrounds with a variety of distances. I hope to figure out if it would be worth $400 for me.

I would really appreciate if you guys could post a few shots demonstrating those conditions.

Greetings, Kim
