(From Sony lens literature)

G Lens Resolution and Beautiful Bokeh

The E 15mm F1.4 G lens has a wide 15mm view with impressive G lens resolution. Three aspherical elements in an advanced optical design effectively compensate for distortion and deliver excellent corner-to-corner resolution, despite the lens’ wide 15 mm angle of view. The addition of one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element effectively suppresses chromatic aberration.

The large F1.4 maximum aperture, precisely controlled spherical aberration and circular aperture mechanism make it easy to produce smooth, background bokeh for an artist effect.

With a minimum focusing distance of 6.7 inches (0.17 meters) and maximum magnification of 0.15x when manual focus is used, impressive close-ups can be achieved for both stills and video.

AF Performance That Makes Full Use of Camera’s Speed Potential

Fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking for both stills and video is achieved with two advanced linear motors. This maximizes the speed potential of the camera body used to maintain accurate focus, even when focusing on fast-moving subjects.

The E 15mm F1.4 G uses Sony’s latest lens technology to reduce focus breathing so that angle-of-view variations are minimized for smooth, stable video. It also supports the breathing compensation function provided in compatible Alpha series bodies, minimizing breathing that can hinder post-shoot editing.

Excellent Control and Reliability for Stills and Video

Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control is immediate, repeatable and precise.

By combining aspherical elements and an effective design, this lens achieves a large aperture and high resolution in a lightweight 7.7 ounces (219 grams) lens that is only 2.6 inches (66.6 mm) in diameter and 2.74 inches (69.5 mm) in length. Despite its compact dimensions, the E 15mm F1.4 G includes an aperture ring for direct, intuitive control with an aperture click switch that can be switched ON or OFF: ON for tactile feedback that lets the user “feel” the stops, or OFF for smooth, continuous, silent aperture control. The OFF setting enables smooth and stable control for video and is also ideal when silent operation is essential.

A focus hold button and focus mode switch are also provided for extra flexibility. The focus mode switch makes it possible to quickly switch between AF and MF as needed.

A wide angle of view, compact dimensions, and light weight make it ideal for shooting starry skies, landscapes, architecture, and indoor scenes, as well as subjects that require mobility such as sports.

The E 15mm F1.4 G is designed with dust and moisture resistance providing extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

Pricing and Availability

The E 15mm F1.4 G will be available in July for approximately $750.00 USD and $950.00 CAD.
