Pros:lightweight, not too expensive, precise autofocus
Cons:Certainly not a very sharp optics, made general questionable (I don't like it), distorts more than I expected
Opinion:As a portrait painter I can't help but own a 35mm, but I'm sorry because I took it after possessing for several months its 85mm big brother and, in all honesty, there really is an abyss between the two optics... this has no sharpness other than very closed diaphragms (but then I do not need it) and distorts too much, the subjects can only be resumed from afar. I don't like it, if I could do without it I would make it.
Pros:Excellent price-performance-size ratio, good for AF and re-resolution
Cons:on 42 mp it has slight aberrations, too neutral as yield.
Opinion:I sold the 50 1.4 zeiss before it devalued too much given the rumors of a GM 1.2, which was discovered between 24 and 135 I opted to buy 35 and 85 1.8 taking advantage of the cashback. the 35 is not actually my favorite focal point, but it still remains very versatile. this 35, which many praise, takes a few shots on the 42mp of the a7riii. the resolution remains very high, even at full opening, but to achieve the performance of the GM you must close at least f2.5. photographing in the backlight or with reflective metals in the scene, slight aberrations can occur probably not at all noticeable on 24mp. Luckily I found no signs of flare, even shooting in full sun, if anything it loses a contrast thread, but I find it absolutely normal. the 35 1.8 remains a very light and very small lens. very performing at AF level, but, compared to the famous and expensive little brothers, it lacks verve. when I look at the photos taken with 35 1.8 I find them absolutely neutral, almost aseptic, indeed, midges. of course, processing the file you can get a lot. but already the 55 1.8 zeiss for me had much, much more character. I will conclude by saying that, however, it remains a MUST HAVE lens given the relationship between dimensions, performance and costs. it's just PERFECT for making street and generic walking photos.
Pros:Very light, very fast in the af, very sharp, tropicalized.
Cons:Proletarian lens that does not make status, but intelligent.
Opinion:The perfect lens does not exist, but for those who use the 35mm this lens solves many problems. Fast, brilliant, light and above all cheap. Used with a7R IV it allows you to perform even important crops, so as not to make it necessary to mount longer optics. For those looking for the blazon, instead, it will have to turn on 35mm 1.4 GM or on ZEISS lenses. Of course, if you think about the price difference of around 1300 euros compared to 1.4 GM it might seem like nonsense. Maybe that's nonsense!!! but monkeys are made to get on your shoulder and get you stupid... but the GM red mark or the blue one with the inscription ZEISS are really nice ......
Pros:Light, Fast and precise Af, sharp already at full opening, aesthetically beautiful, flare resistance, excellent contrast and color rendering.
Cons:For the time being nothing
Opinion:Recently taken, in combination with Sony A7ii,it is the first lens I have Sony, I feel very good with the 35mm focal, let's say it is the center of my kit, I repeat the AF is very fast, and I have the A7ii that everyone says is slow.... sharpness even at F1.8 at least in my specimen.in my opinion it is the best choice as size/weight/brightness, it lies exactly between the large f1.4 and the small f2.8. I find the blurry very beautiful, suitable as I use it both in landscape and street I am very satisfied with the purchase and I recommend it, to be combined in my opinion with the brother fe 85 f1.8 same design, for light outputs with 2 optics almost everything is done.
Cons:I go against the current, but to me it did not seem so sharp, Eye Af not very precise.
Opinion:I got to use this lens in a controlled studio context: in addition to doing a hair of focus hunting on the eyes with active AF eye I do not seem to have obtained stellar results, but not knowing what the 35 mm are able to churn I can not compare much. it may be convenient to take on holiday but I would prefer the Zeiss 2.8 because it is smaller. to reconnect with Franz Zambotti did not trigger the poem that the 55 1.8 that I love, is able to give me despite all its flaws.
