Sony30f35emIn 2011, Sony released the 30mm f/3.5 Macro as the fourth in its series of NEX E-mount lenses. The lens offers full 1:1 (100%) macro reproduction, with a very short working distance of under four inches; when you consider the length of the lens and the distance of the sensor, this equates to about an inch from the front of the lens itself.
