The new SP Series 35mm lens produces stunning high-resolution quality across a wide range of focusing distances. In particular, this lens features a milestone of proximity never before achieved with a standard lens – at an MOD of 0.2m*.

And with VC, photographers can now fully take advantage of the potential of optical performance from F/1.8 full open aperture. Furthermore, even in close-ups, the lens maintains a wide-angle perspective that will add context and story depth to your subject. The SP 35mm will keep pace with the photographer’s spontaneity – on the spur of the moment, with a handheld shot.

The open aperture is set to F/1.8 with optimized critical properties at a higher level: superb optical performance coupled with a VC system, a shorter MOD, and a well-balanced form factor. Rigorous simulation processes performed throughout the design phase are materialized in distinguished resolving power and beautifully-tuned background blur, a prominent feature to a fast-aperture, full-frame compliant optic.

Closest Focusing Distance in its Class

The SP 35mm (MOD: 0.2m) offers best-in-class close focusing*. A floating system design feature seamlessly optimizes image quality by shifting elements relative to the focus group in close shooting situations.

Of the new SP series lenses, the 35mm lens offers unique opportunities enabling shooting like a wide-angle macro lens.

VC (Vibration Compensation) Integration, Setting Itself Apart

VC deployed on fast-aperture lenses dramatically enhances freedom of hand-held shooting under lime light or dim room light conditions by eliminating minute camera shake.

VC is an excellent attribute to acquire inherent high-fidelity images. In particular, cameras with high-pixel density imagers tend to pick up subtle vibrations, resulting in degradation of image quality.
