With stunning G Lens rendering and expressive F1.4 bokeh, this 15 mm (35mm full-frame eq: 22.5 mm1) wide-angle prime lens for APS-C and Super35 cameras can deliver dynamic perspectives and expression. Whether you’re shooting stills or movies, superb operability and AF performance combine with compact, lightweight mobility, and multi-faceted versatility.
Eye-opening G Lens resolution
An innovative optical design that includes three aspherical elements corrects field curvature and aberration for outstanding resolution through the lens’s wide 15 mm field of view, even at full F1.4 aperture. One ED (Extra-low dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element further suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduce peripheral color fringing.
Breathtaking, naturally rendered bokeh
This lens’s large F1.4 aperture makes it possible to produce beautiful bokeh that is enhanced by precisely controlled spherical aberration and a 7-blade circular aperture. Minimum focus distance of just 6.7” (0.17 m) and 0.15x maximum magnification2 let you get close to the subject while producing deep background bokeh. Impressive close-up capability is an advantage for movies as well as stills.
Compact and lightweight
The small size and low weight of this lens makes it a perfect match for compact APS-C as well as Super35 E-mount cameras. 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 2-5/8 x 2-3/4” (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.
Wide-angle prime offers a 22.5mm equivalent focal length, making it a versatile option for anything from street to landscape to travel, as well as for selfie-style vlogging needs.
Advanced optics for minimal focus breathing
State-of-the-art lens technology packed into this remarkable large-aperture wide-angle lens reduces unwanted focus breathing and angle of view shifts when focusing. It also supports the breathing compensation function in compatible alpha cameras, further reducing unwanted angle of view shifts during focusing for smooth, high-quality movie footage.
Consistent balance and center of gravity
Thanks to a refined internal focus mechanism, the lens’s length remains constant while focusing for ideal balance and handling. You can move in close to the subject, right down to the lens’s minimum focusing distance, and shoot movies or stills without being restricted by changing lens length.
Granular focus control
For professional manual focusing feel and repeatable response, Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle manual control. Focus ring rotation translates directly to the corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills and movies.
