The Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* is one of the first lenses for Sony's fledgling full frame mirrorless system, offering a classic moderate wideangle view. It's a small lens that nicely complements the Alpha 7 and 7R, but at around $800 / £680 it's distinctly pricey for a relatively slow prime. So is it worth the money?

In this 'Lab Test report' we're publishing full lens test data (as usual prepared by our collaborators at DxOMark) in our unique lens data widget, and presenting our own analysis of what it all means. We'll be using this new article format from now on to help cover more lenses than we've been able to in the past. It will complement, rather than replace our in-depth reviews, which we'll still be producing to cover the most interesting lenses on the market.
