The Sony E Mount 90mm f/2.8 Macro Lens is a Full Frame format lens with a 35mm field of view equivalent of 135mm. It also performs well under low-light settings due to its f/2.8 maximum aperture. Constructed with 15 lens elements in 11 groups, it features Aspherical Lens Elements that help reduce spherical aberration and a Nano AR Coating that prevents ghosting and flaring. Fast and smooth autofocus is made possible by the Direct Drive Super Sonic Wave Motor. Likewise, potential image blurs due to camera shake is countered by Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization. Meanwhile, the 0.28m minimum focusing distance is ideal for capturing small subjects. Amazing bokeh effects can also be achieved through the nine-blade circular diaphragm. Compatible with Sony E-Mount Cameras, the Sony E Mount 30mm f/3.5 Macro Lens has a 62mm filter diameter.
Product Features in Detail
Renowned G Lens background bokeh
Beautiful background bokeh is synonymous with the G Lens name, and it can really make the subject stand out. Individual calibration of each lens ensures optimum compensation for spherical aberration, resulting in smooth rendering of edges without a trace of ugly "nisen bokeh." A nine-blade circular aperture also contributes to great looking bokeh.
Image-wide clarity from macro to infinity
Macro lenses are often used over a wide range of focusing distances, so a floating focus mechanism has been implemented for optimum suppression of close-focus aberration. The floating system reduces the size of the lens while maintaining outstanding clarity throughout the image area, from infinity to the closest focusing distance.
Precise, quiet focus for stills and movies
Two focus groups in a floating focus configuration are driven by an innovative DDSSM (Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor) system for smooth, precise positioning of the relatively heavy lenses that make full-frame macro magnification possible. This system is remarkably quiet, and is ideal for animal or insect photography as well as movies.
Sharp and clear without a tripod
Although a tripod is usually considered necessary for sharp macro photography, built-in OSS (Optical SteadyShot™) image stabilization makes it possible to shoot sharp macro images handheld. The heavy stabilization lens is driven by a responsive linear motor for fast, precise stabilization.
Fast auto/manual focus switching
If you have to remove your eye from the viewfinder to switch between auto and manual focus, you're likely to lose the shot. With this lens the focus ring, where your hand normally rests while shooting, simply slides back and forth to switch between manual and auto focus. A non-slip surface ensures reliable operation.
Focus lock where you need it most
Pressing the focus hold button, conveniently located on the lens barrel, instantly locks focus at the current setting and keeps it there until the button is released. The focus hold button can be used to lock focus even when shooting in the continuous AF mode.
Inner focus for better handling
In an inner-focus design, only internal lens elements move when focusing, so the total length of the lens does not change. In addition to making handling easier, that means faster autofocus and shorter minimum focusing distance. The filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is an advantage when using a polarizing filter.
Get close while keeping your distance
The medium telephoto focal length of this lens gives it an ideal working distance at macro magnifications, making it easier to capture impressive macro images of insects and other subjects that cannot be approached too closely.
Select your focus range for faster AF
The Focus Range Limiter selector can be set for near and/or far focusing, depending on the subject, limiting focusing range and thereby maximizing autofocus speed. Selections are infinity–0.5 meters for distant focusing, 0.5–0.28 meters for close focusing, and FULL for full-range focusing.
Great for movies as well as stills
In some ways, lens requirements for moviemaking are more demanding than for stills. Sony goes the extra mile to ensure that lenses that will be used with movie-capable cameras will deliver the necessary performance. Minimal focus breathing and quiet operation, for example, are essential for movie shooting.
Reliable and easy in any conditions
Reliable operation in a variety of conditions is ensured by a design that prevents dust and moisture from entering the lens.
