Large-aperture 15 mm F1.4 G Lens

With stunning G Lens rendering and expressive F1.4 bokeh, this 15-mm wide-angle prime lens for APS-C bodies can deliver dynamic perspectives and expression. In a compact lens that weighs just 7.8 oz (219 grams) you get outstanding resolution right out to the image edges, with minimal focus breathing when shooting movies.

Sony lens technology cancels aberration

An innovative optical design that includes three aspherical elements corrects field curvature and aberration for outstanding resolution throughout the lens's wide 15 mm field of view. One ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element further suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduce peripheral colour fringing.Learn more about Fluorite Lens.

Breathtaking close-up bokeh

This lens's 0.17-m minimum manual focus (0.2 m when using AF) and 0.15x maximum magnification (0.12x when using AF) let you get close to the subject while producing beautiful bokeh. Shoot close-up subjects against deep background bokeh for truly memorable images. Impressive close-up capability is an advantage for movies as well as stills.

Compact and lightweight design

A design that maximizes the benefits of aspherical elements and the short mirrorless flange back distance delivers stunning optical performance in an APS-C format lens that is only 2.62 x 2.74" (66.6 x 69.5 mm) and weighs only 7.8 oz (219 g). A great choice for wide-angle landscapes, architecture, interiors, and snapshots in general.

Natural, linear manual focus response

For professional manual focusing feel and response, Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle manual control. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills and movies.Learn more about Linear Response MF.

Two linear motors for amazing AF

Two linear motors deliver fast, precise AF with superb tracking performance that maximizes camera body performance to capture decisive moments in street snaps, expression changes in portraits, and the like. The fast, precise, and quiet AF with superb tracking performance is ideal for shooting movies as well as stills.Learn more about Linear Motor.

Stable movies with minimal breathing

State-of-the-art lens technology packed into this remarkable large-aperture ultra-wide lens reduces focus breathing and angle-of-view shifts when focusing to facilitate high-quality movie recording and smooth, refined expression.

Customizable focus hold button

The focus hold button is customisable from the camera menu, and can be assigned a function that the user prefers. For example if the Eye AF function that automatically tracks human eyes is assigned, the fingers of the right hand that hold the camera can remain fixed while the left thumb operates Eye AF, for more stable holding.Learn more about Focus Hold Button.

Switchable aperture ring click stops

An aperture ring provides intuitive control plus the fast response required for professional applications. It also includes a switch that turns the aperture click stops on or off: ON for tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for seamless, silent control when shooting movies.Learn more about Iris/Aperture Click Switch.

Easy manual focus/autofocus switching

The manual/autofocus mode switch enables instant switching between manual and auto focus modes, allowing instant response to changing shooting situations and focusing needs.

Dust and moisture-resistant design

Smooth handling for movie shooting

Thanks to a refined internal focus mechanism, the lens's length remains constant while focusing for ideal balance and handling. Consistent balance plus small size and low weight also make gimbal balancing easy.
