Sony SEL30M35 Specification Guide (en)
1:1 Magnification Ratio
The SEL30M35 has a 1:1 magnification ratio so that subjects can be captured at full size on the
camera’s image sensor. This makes it easy to shoot quality macro close-ups of flowers, insects,
and small objects.
Made for movies
The SEL30M35 performs equally as well when shooting video. Thanks to an internal stepping
motor and rear-focusing design It has optimized video performance for smooth, quiet operation
essential for high-quality movie capture. Additionally, the filter mount does not rotate during
focusing for hassle-free polarized filter use.
Smooth Manual Focusing
An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid "hands-on" feel in manual focusing.
Additionally, Direct Manual Focus (DMF) allows you to focus manually after AF lock-on without the
need for any switching. This can be extremely useful in situations where AF can’t lock onto the
subject accurately, or when AF locks onto a point that does not match your intention. Electronic
manual focus technology was originally developed for professional Sony camcorders to ensure
smooth, precise focus control.
Aspherical/ED glass elements
The SEL30M35 offers excellent image quality throughout the entire image area, with high contrast
and minimal chromatic aberration from infinity to 1:1 magnification at all aperture settings. ED
glass is used for the G4 element, minimizing chromatic aberration and color bleeding as well as
multi-coating throughout for exceptionally clean, clear rendering
