Which 35mm lens do you own now and what do you think of the 35mm 1.8 after seeing what it can do?
I totally agree on bumping aperture ring. I own a $5800 Leica 35mm 1.4 summilux and I cant believe how such an extremely expensive lens is so flawed because the aperture ring is so easy to get moved. Everytime I touch the lens it moves. Other owners have complained the same. I tried to justify it for the past years of using it but frankly it sux.
Music is too loud
Thanks Mannyfor make my decision easier. I've just bought 35 1.8.
Also I have 85 mm 1.8 sony and it is great lens.
Thanks for the video. Is the motor of the 1.8's focus noticeable with an on-camera mic?
The 1.8 is superior in almost every category because it's much newer. Sony has really stepped up their lens game in the last several years. Now, if they ever get around to releasing a 35mm GM then look out. xD
Light weight lenses would eventually produce more good pictures since you'd definitely want to take them out for a shoot.
Hello, I want to ask you something. if you could have chance to buy only one lens, Which one you choose ? 35mm f1.4 Zeiss or 55mm f1.8 ? And one more question, if you have a Zeiss 35mm 1.4za already, what would be your second lens ? 55mm 1.8 or Sony FE 85mm 1.8 ? I am really excited about what you think. Thank you
if hope you did the test before dropping the lense as it will make the test unreal if not.
the bokeh of the 1.4 is outstanding better, and i am sure that even you will get down 1 aperture to 1.8 you will have better bokeh than the 1.8 lens.
and sry, the aperture ring is annoying you? i used to work with canon and nikon equipment as professional sports photographer, and the first i did on most of the lenses was to fixtape all buttons with gaffer, because there was no time i was not changing the button settings while carrying the camera on the belt over the shoulder. so just use 1/2 inch of tape and you are done and do not have to sell the lens…
Exactly the type of review video I needed! Thank you!!!
I needed this video! Thanks man!
the 35mm 1.8 gonna be gold if it was priced at $500 or even $550
Manny can you compare the 28mm f2 to the 35mm 1.8. I feel sold on the 35mm until I think of how much $$ I can save going with a used 28mm f2. In my mind the 28 f2 would basically do what the 35 f1.8 would do …
Manny, do you notice when the lens (fe 1.8) is not attached in the camera, something sliding inside the lens when you flip it up and down
Manny I have a shoot coming up for a birthday party of 75. Do you think the 35 1.8 would be good for group shots. No more than 5 people at a time
Do you think that 35mm is a good focal length for group pictures?
You should have said the 1.4 was broken in the title so that nobody wasted time watching this video
Thank you for saving me money
Thank you manny, this comparison help me so much….. 👍👍👍👍👍👍
SEL35F18F vs Batis 40mm, which one would you recommend?
Dont like the Bokeh of the 1.8 and canons 35mm 1.8 Macro is just 400dollar… i heard vigniette is not good on the sony lens…
Zeiss 35 1,4 vs Sigma 35 1,2 – help me decide ! 🙂
Manny – are you going to review the Sigma 24-70?
Carl Zeiss has more dreamy look in to it.
Ill take the $650 sigma all day
Please compare Sony 55 1.8 and Sony 35 1.8.
Great review as always !
BTW – I just got my copy today and noticed some minor specs on the glass ( which are not dust – couldn't remove them with lens pen )
Attached in the picture https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WwWbwJcXFChLo5TafNYjnErgY2iyIIff/view?usp=sharing
Do you think I should ask for a replacement or is it common to have minor blemishes as such ?
I took some shots with it and couldn't notice anything in the photos.
Thanks for your advise !
I made the test to the 1.8.. but will keep the zeiss 1.4 still my favorite lens..
the zeiss is not sharp at all, even the Samyang 35 f1.4 is sharper than it. not worth for that price.
this was very helpful – thank you!
Great video and comparison! Lately Sony puts out much better and cheaper glass i.e Sony FE 85 1.8!❤! Also Why use LBS and Grams at the same time? 😅
Thanks for the video. Which do you prefer for general purpose photography the 35mm 1.8 or the 55 1.8?
which camera used here ?
This or the tamron 28-75
I got this 1.8 indeed, for my taste it could be a bit bigger..maybe as the fe 85…but I like it a lot what it deliver, regarding the 50 mm, I went for the planar, I hated the horrible CA of the zeiss, yes it is big but…Mamita!, que lente!
I don't know if it is the music or what, but Manny knows how to send my ass to the store to pick one of these up…
Ortiz, ur Review is quite favorable on 1.4, especially on Video Focus, on 1.8 it's to close on 1.4 a bit far (I am talking about the model/subject, check ur framing), check it again, right I am using the 2019 FE 35mm f/1.8 not because of the price but its EFFICIENCY . . . i love this FE 35mm f/1.8 for both video n still, specially on my Ronin S n Ronin Sc
Very helpful video thanks! Seems like the f/1.4 lenses don't focus quite as well, in part because they have so much more glass to move, and perhaps due to being older technology. But f/1.4 MELTS the background, which f/1.8 – at best – strongly hints at. In practice though the depth of field of f/1.4 is often not practical anyway. Tough call.
Funny, I personally really appreciate the Distagon has an aperture ring, even though I'm also tempted to sell it for the 1.8, simply for the small size, and the discreet, inconspicious street shooting this enables. But I hate having to dial for ages to change the aperture on the camera, as I often shoot the same shot twice with vastly different apertures (like 1.4 and 8), toggling there and back with a dial is just annoying.
weird how some Sony lenses are "dust and moisture" sealed, or so they claim, yet they don't have the rubber gasket
Now that the new 35mm 2.8 Tamron is out. Would you do a comparison?
Good comparison and review 👍
Exellent video- would prefer the weights to be in the same language. (Lbs, grams etc…) otherwise loved it man.
I just bought Sony 35 1.8 . Have you noticed increased noise? Ive feeling like even ISO 1250 is too much for the lens on my A7RIII. Is that possible?
You are not JUST losing a stop of light, you are losing subject isolation and much nicer bokeh with a better lens like the Sigma 35mm 1.2. So we all make our compromises but do not minimize it to validate your choices

Super helpful comparison. Thank you!
