mpb002: It doesn’t look like the subpar ergonomics changed much. For now Sony at least owns the high MP market as well as DR. That is until Canon upps the sensor on theirs. Then they will again rule both in MP and ergonomics...

What is subpar about the ergonomics?

yoms: We've seen many new (U)WA zoom lenses. Except Canon's 16-35mm, none of them accept front filters. Why Sigma, Tamron, Venus, Laowa, etc. ? Why?

Tamrons new 17-35 and 17-28 both accept filters

Jonathan Brady: This release highlights how the third party lens market will look for the foreseeable future for RF and Z mount users... Lenses will be designed with Sony's mount in mind so if you want to sit on your lens engineer armchair throne and talk smack about Sony's mount (and look like an idiot), you're going to need to stick to first party lenses only because you'll know the 3rd party stuff is "compromised".
By the way, Canon and Nikon appreciate your loyalty. $$$$$

Wait, but Jonathan, this lens must be for R or Z right??? Last I heard, Sony would never be able to have an f1.2 lens and that would only be possible on the incredibly perfect R and Z mounts??

stevo23: $750? That seems high when the Canon 35mm f/2 is $549. I think the Canon used to be a few dollars higher? But then the Nikon Z mount is..cough cough...$850.

@rishi that is really great to hear! I'm still hoping the price comes down to be more in line with the FE 85mm f1.8, but I'm glad the lens seems to be excellently done!

XeroJay: Looks good! If anyone even mentions color science, I swear to god, I'm blocking them...

@Akgbkd - hmmm, the colors in these pictures seem just fine. Also, just FYI, you said that to a professional wedding photographer who, I believe, came to Sony from Canon.

AlexLex: Moaning about MSRP price, why!? We all know how it ends, few months later price will go down to more realistic level.

@Alex, that's great to know, but if you don't live there, you don't know that. We are simply basing it off our own experience, just as you are.

@T3 - people haven't forgotten it. We just realize that the Nikon Z lens is also overpriced. Canon tried pricing their 35mm f2 IS lens this high once and it dropped dramatically in the first six months to where it should be priced, around $499. Hopefully the same happens with the Sony. It looks fantastic in every way except price.

ozturert: 750USD, relatively inexpensive? Compared to Nikon Z yes, compared to Canon RF no way. Sony is 50% more expensive than the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro lens.

MILC man, did you read the review you linked to? He seems to give it a very positive review and says it has IQ comparable to the Canon 35mm f2 is, which is a great little lens. What am I missing?

Ugh @rubberdials what a silly response. the poster is responding to DPR saying the lens is "relatively inexpensive". Given the fact that the largest camera manufacturer has a lens with the same focal length and maximum aperture for $250 less, I would say relatively inexpensive is probably not the right term for it. Doesn't mean he wants the canon, just means that phrase is incorrect.

marc petzold: No way - no pay! Sad, but true...i've really waited for a 35/1.8 or F2 Lens. But here's the kicker - not even a "G" Class Lens, and that expensive - it's really too expensive, even it'll being good. And relative huge, too. Would being 800 to 850 EUR into germany, for "just" a average speed 35/F1.8 AF Lens...nope. For less than half the amont of money, i get faster 35/1.4 AF for my EF System, into contrast.

Nope. I am using my Samyang 35/2.8 FE AF further way. With these prices, i'd use my manual focus Zeiss, which does have their own rendering style.

It must be at bare minimum for this price as good, as the Sigma 35/F1.4 AF ART Prime, and better being as good, as the Tamron 35/1.4 SP, which Tamron claims, is better into it's price range, than all the others.

What is Sony thinking? They're ZEISS now? Just a 35/F1.8 for that asking price...yes the 85/1.8 is great. But this AF 35/F1.8 FE should cost around 450-550 EUR max, nothing more. No offense.

Good Light.

@pantherfan
The Z is also overpriced. The Fuji is APS-C, so hard to compare it. Canon's is $499 and yes lacks internal focus and weather sealing, but also adds macro (which I personally think is why it lacks internal focus). They should have priced this more in line with Canon who is the largest camera/lens company and also more in line with their own lenses that are similar to it! 85mm f1.8 and 28mm f2. It is priced substantially higher than both.

eno2: The 750$ priced asked for for this lens it's to high, it should have been 499$ IMO!

Yep, I was thinking somewhere in the range of $499 and $599. Their 85mm f1.8 is perfect price/performance in my mind, but this one seems a little off. Yes, I'm aware that the Nikon 35mm f1.8 is more expensive... but that is also over priced. I hope it comes down soon like the Canon 35mm f2 is did!

Maybe, but when was the last time a Sony lens went down in price after a few months?

Hautedawg: Glad to have this lens, I'm not a big fan of the zoom range though. I'm hoping sony comes out with an ultrawide prime soon.

That is a very strange zoom range. This is quite close to the normal UWA zoom range, so it’s not a great comparison. The 28-75 f2.8 is a better comparison. I did choose it over a 50mm F1.8, but I can understand why some would choose the prime, although it would probably not be because the zoom range is bad but because they like having F1.8 or they like the small size

I understand the preference, I just think it’s funny to call it “crippled” because it has a small zoom range, and then not call a lens “crippled” that has zero zoom range... it’s not crippled, they just prioritized weight and price over range.

How is it crippled though? Simply the zoom range? If it’s good wide open, do you see the irony there?

(unknown member): I needed to send in my Tamron 150-600mm to them for calibration and bar none, their customer service was the most responsive I have ever experienced. Friendly on the phone, 3-day turnaround on the lens.....I will seriously consider buying more of their glass in the future because the customer service was phenomenal.

Same experience here. Their warranty is absolutely amazing and their service is super fast and excellent.

So you don’t like the zoom range but are waiting for a prime? Hmmmm

diness: Amazing how many commenters here apparently create better images than this. You all must win a lot of contests...

Akpinxit- very well could be, but this, I believe, is one of the worst things about the Internet. People who can sit at their computers and anonymously pick apart other people’s work. Not in a constructive way of course, just a “these are terrible” kind of way. It’s too easy and I think just comes across as arrogance.
