It is a perfect match for compact APS-C bodies, letting you capture stunning stills and movies anywhere. It also features two linear motors for fast, precise AF that supports both stills and movies.
Three aspherical elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, achieve consistently high resolution from the image centre to periphery, despite the lens’s ultra-wide 11 mm angle of view, 35mm full-frame equivalent: 16.5 mm. The aspherical lenses are carefully positioned to compensate for distortion and deliver excellent corner-to-corner resolution even with the aperture wide open.
The E 11mm F1.8’s ultra-wide angle of view is ideal for interior shots and images that make expressive use of depth of field. The large F1.8 maximum aperture of this lens makes it easy to achieve deep background bokeh. Users can blur the background, so they stand out clearly when vlogging, or create beautiful bokeh balls in ultra-wide night scenes. Precisely controlled spherical aberration and a circular aperture mechanism further contribute to the smooth bokeh produced by this unique lens.
Compact and Lightweight to Shoot on the Go
The E 11mm F1.8 boasts a large F1.8 maximum aperture in a compact, lightweight lens. It weighs 181 g and is only 66 mm in diameter and 57.5 mm in length - a perfect match for compact APS-C format bodies. With a minimum focusing distance of 0.12 meters and maximum magnification of 0.2x1 the lens can deliver impressive close-ups for both stills and movies.
Stable movies with minimal breathing
Two advanced linear motors provide fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking for both stills and video, maximising the speed potential of the camera body used to reliably maintain accurate focus even on moving subjects. Sony’s latest lens technology greatly reduces focus breathing2 and angle-of-view variations are minimised for smooth, stable movie imagery.
Consistent balance for easy handling
Its small size and light weight are great for mobility and handling for lengthy walk-around shooting sessions. What’s more, an internal focus mechanism means that the lens length does not change when focusing making it easier to move in close to subjects and work in limited spaces for new creative possibilities.
Outstanding Control and Reliability
Despite its compact dimensions, this lens offers flexible, intuitive control with features such as a focus hold button and focus mode switch. An alternative function chosen by the user can be assigned to the focus hold button from the body menu. Dust and moisture resistant design3 provides extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
