The Sony FE 40mm f2.5 is a wide-angle, compact and lightweight lens that is suited to both photography and videography. As a key member of the Sony G-series, you are afforded advanced optics, a tactile exterior design, and incredibly intuitive autofocus capabilities.

Expanded Sony FE 40mm f2.5 G Lens Key Features:

Sharp and Stable Optics

As with all Sony G lenses, this 40mm f2.5 utilises high-end optics to maximise on image-quality, whilst minimising image-degradation. It incorporates three aspherical elements to ensure a high-resolution image, whilst suppressing colour fringing in all areas of the image. Both edge-to-edge resolution and an aesthetically pleasing bokeh are granted by the Sony's powerful 7-blade circular aperture. In turn, this allows the 40mm f2.5 to stand as a versatile full-frame lens for portraiture, cityscapes, landscapes, and video recording.

To match the rapid advancements in their camera systems, Sony has prioritised speed and precision within this FE lens. It makes good use of two linear motors to ensure lightning-quick and accurate AF with smooth, composed tracking. In short, this means that you can maintain in-focus, continuous tracking even when subjects are moving in, out, or within the frame. As a lightweight and compact lens, this makes it ideal for capturing dynamic still-images on the move.

Quiet on Set!

This FE lens is an incredibly versatile piece of kit, however, it really comes into its own on set. The quick-fire, precise AF with exceptional tracking performance guarantees high-quality moving-images; all possible because of the two intuitive linear motors. This system is also incredibly quiet, lending itself to intimate close-up and portrait shooting. When mounted on an APS-C body or shooting in the Super 35mm Movie Format, the angle of view becomes equivalent to 36mm. All in all, this is a true high-performance 40mm wide-view lens with intuitive operability and a compact, lightweight form-factor - suited to freelance content creators, indie filmmakers and more.

Standing Up for the Little Guy

The Sony G Range prides itself on both build-quality and optical performance. This 40mm f2.5 is no different, boasting a high-grade aluminium exterior finish to achieve a smart, stylish yet functional aesthetic - as well as increasing overall strength and durability. To further this sophisticated feel, instead of printing upon the exterior lens, Sony has engraved the iris ring indices, focal length markings, and Sony logo onto the hood of the 40mm lens. Don't be fooled by the Sony FE 40mm f2.5 G's small size - it packs a seriously high-end optical mechanism within such a compact, stylish, and lightweight exterior construction.

What forms of image-making is this Sony FE 40mm f2.5 G lens best suited to?

This 40mm f2.5 is a versatile, compact, and lightweight Sony lens that is suited to both photography and videography. However, certain features are specific to video recording - such as the super-fast and precise auto focus, compact size, and wide angle of view.

How would you defined the G lens range by Sony?

The G range is a high-end lineup of Sony lenses (with the G standing for "Gold") that can be characterised by their pro-level features and quality image capturing abilities. They have also been developed to focus faster and with more precision - ideal for video recording.

Could this 40mm f2.5 G fall under the category of a pancake lens?

A pancake lens is stereotypically very short - adding minimal size and weight to your overall camera system. This Sony FE 40mm f2.5 G lens is incredibly compact and portable, however, it is not defined as a pancake lens. Instead, it can be seen as a highly portable performance mid-length prime lens.
