Product features (common to all three models)

  1. Extraordinary close-up photography ability to thoroughly enjoy “close-up shooting”

    The shortest shooting distance of this single focus series is 20mm (Model F050): 0.11m, 24mm (Model F051): 0.12m, 35mm (Model F053): 0.15m, and the lens is in close focus. In either case, the maximum magnification is 1: 2. By shooting close to the subject, it is possible to emphasize the perspective unique to a wide-angle lens, such that the closer one is larger and the far one is smaller.
    One of the important specs for “wide-angle lenses” Surprisingly close-up capability as a full-size lens gives you more flexibility than ever before. Furthermore, even with a wide-angle lens that is difficult to obtain large blurring, you can take a picture with a greatly blurred background by approaching the subject.

  2. Compact, lightweight, filter diameter φ67mm system with excellent mobility

    Weight is very light, 20mm (Model F050): 220g, 24mm (Model F051): 215g, 35mm (Model F053): 210g. Even if three are combined, 645g is excellent in portability. You can enjoy shooting without hesitation. In addition, combination with Tamron standard zoom 28-75mm F / 2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036) and super wide angle zoom 17-28mm F / 2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046) of the same series for full size mirrorless is also optimal. Widen the range of shooting.
    In addition, the three filter diameters are φ67mm, which is the same as our full-size mirrorless zoom lens. PL filter, ND filter, etc. greatly reduce the burden of filter work and support smoother shooting. Since the front cap is also common, there is no need to search for caps with different diameters when changing lenses, and this system is highly convenient and mobile, reducing stress during shooting.

  3. Excellent resolution performance for high-resolution digital cameras

    By properly arranging LD (Low Dispersion) lenses and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lenses, which are special glass materials, in the advanced lens configuration based on the latest design technology, it is extremely possible from the center to the periphery of the screen. High descriptive performance. In addition, the use of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating, which boasts excellent anti-reflection performance, greatly reduces the occurrence of ghosts and flares. On the other hand, distortion that is common in wide-angle lenses is corrected using the functions on the camera. With uncompromising optical performance and excellent resolution performance realized by the camera aberration correction function, it can be used safely in a wide range of applications such as full-scale landscapes and architectural photography as well as casual snap photography.

  4. 64mm long for ease of use

    The lens length is 64mm, which is the same for all three lenses. The small lens body with a good balance with the Sony E-mount camera is designed so that there is no change in length due to focusing while adopting a front-lens extension type. For this reason, there is little risk of the front lens that has been paid out by focusing during close-up shooting coming into contact with the subject, greatly contributing to ease of use when using the lens. In addition, the focus ring is placed in front of the lens so that the index finger and thumb can be attached naturally, and operability during manual focus is also emphasized.

  5. Adopting a quiet DC motor “OSD”

    OSD (Optimized Silent Drive) with excellent quietness is adopted for AF drive. Compared to conventional DC motors, it has succeeded in significantly reducing drive noise and greatly improves AF accuracy and speed. Even when shooting a moving subject, it achieves excellent AF accuracy and follow-up ability to focus accurately. It also supports “Fast Hybrid AF”, “Eye Eye AF”, and “Direct Manual Focus (DMF)” installed on Sony cameras to support more comfortable shooting.

  6. Simple drip-proof structure and anti-fouling coating to support comfortable shooting

    Drip-proof sealing is arranged at the main parts such as the movable part and joint part of the lens barrel, making it difficult for water to enter the lens. In addition, the front surface of the lens is equipped with antifouling coating technology using fluorine compounds with excellent water and oil repellency. It is easy to wipe off dirt such as water droplets and hand grease, and it is easy to maintain, so it can be used safely as a close-up single focus lens.
