A Complete List Of Sony E-Mount Lenses | APS-C

Sony APS-C Lenses

This list features all APS-C or Super 35mm E-Mount lenses that are readily available. This means it won’t be including those random lenses you might see flow through ebay. This list also features only APS-C E-Mount designed lenses. I’ve also compiled a  list of Sony lenses for full frame cameras.

 

 


The Complete List Of Sony APS-C Lenses


Many of these lenses could also be considered Super 35mm lenses, although APS-C and Super 35mm sizes are slightly different, these lenses will work for either.

35mm Equiv represents the perspective of the actual lens related to the traditional 35mm film standard. So when you hear someone refer to a 50mm lens, with APS-C that’s actually about 35mm because you have to include the 1.5X crop factor of APS-C. 35mm x 1.5 = 52.5mm.

Sigma APS-C Lenses

 


One of the best reasons to go with Sony APS-C over any other brand is the access you get to the Sigma brand of lenses. These lenses are very inexpensive for the quality you get. Sigma is one of the most popular 3rd party brands and has a stellar reputation. You can’t go wrong with a Sigma APS-C lens.

Handevision Primes X-Mount Lenses


Handevision is a German-Chinese joint venture. These lenses are designed and built-in German, then mass-produced in China with a German level of quality control.

Han = China, DE = Germany + Vision. They are owned by OSD GmbH.

These lenses are actually full frame lenses but because of their compact size, they work great on Sony APS-C bodies.

Made with high quality anodized aluminum, brass and stainless steel. I personally think they are great and highly recommend them. 

The Handevision 40mm f0.85 II is known to be the fastest lens in the world that is currently available.

Cinema Lenses


 

Tokina Super 35mm Cinema Lenses


Tokina has made some very popular cinema lenses for the NEX or E-Mount cameras. The 11-16mm is designed for Super 35mm sensors which is pretty much APS-C.

There are also a lot of great Tokina Full Frame E-Mount lenses that will also work for your Super 35mm sensor camera. But I’ve posted those over on the Full Frame E-Mount list.

This lens is no longer available.

Fujifilm Cinema Lenses For Sony


Fujifilm is making Cine lenses for the E-Mount but also for the Fujifilm X-Mount. Fijifilm has been known for their legendary lenses. It’s nice to see them taking a consumer approach to the cine lenses.

These lenses also only cover super 35mm. So you would need to crop down your full frame cameras to super 35mm.

SLR Magic


SLR Magic makes some interesting Cinema lenses for ILC cameras. Optically these lenses can render very nice, for example, the full frame 35mm f1.2 SLR Magic lens renders beautifully. Usually these lenses suffer from corner performance, but if you’re cropping to 16:9 it’s not an issue, and I think they knew that designing them.

I’ve gone through several SLR Magic lenses now and I would say the biggest flaw is the build quality. Sticking focus, decentric issues, stiff focus etc. If you can get a good copy, they are cool lenses. They also pair well with the Anamorphot adapters.

Chinese Lenses


Like on the FE lens page I’ve grouped all the Chinese lenses in their own group. Some of these lenses are actually not bad, but people do consider them cheap lenses, both in quality and in price.

They’re great for if you want a cheap lens to beat up on.

 

7Artisans Photoelectric Sony APS-C Lenses


7Artisans makes the better of the really cheap APS-C all manual lenses. There is very little quality control, and build quality can be questionable, but optically these lenses do perform very well for compact prime lenses.

The 35mm f2 can also work for full frame cameras.

Meiki APS-C Lenses For Sony

Meke lenses are even more compact than the 7Artisans lenses. Typically when you create smaller lenses you have to compromise some image quality. I would choose 7Artisans lenses over Meke lenses unless you really want small lenses (Except the 50mm f0.95). I’ll be getting into the Meiki lens reviews soon.

Mitakon Lenses


Mitakon is one of the more popular Chinese brands since they are known for their speedmasters. The Mitakon 35mm f0.95 Mk II is actually a really good lens. Even though they are made in China, they are made the Japanese way – So they say.

Sainsonic Kamlan


The Kamlan 50mm f1.1 lens has some really nice bokeh and shallow depth of field. It’s also a great high-contrast lens with fantastic micro contrast and color rendering. The downside is corner and edge sharpness isn’t that great and it has some problems with vignetting and chromatic aberrations.

Sony E-Mount Adapters


There are too many E-Mount lens adapters to count now; so I’ll start by listing what I’ve used and what others are finding useful.

I love the metabones adapters but they are a little pricey. For a fraction of the price the Novoflex adapter works perfectly fine. That’s actually what I’m using right now because my metabones adapter broke and I just didn’t see any benefit of spending the extra money on a new one.

I also use the Voigtlander for my Leica lenses. It’s a very solid adapter. The close focus version just means it telescopes slightly.

Sony APS-C Lens List Conclusions

Rumors are Sony will be focusing on some really nice lenses for their Sony APS-C cameras. I’ll continue to find and update this list as we move forward. 

There are also some great Sony Full Frame Lenses that you can buy and use for your APS-C camera.

Lenses like Rokinon 35mm f2.8 or even the Sony 50mm f1.8 are also great lenses that work well on APS-C cameras. So be sure to check out that complete list.

I’ll continue to update this with as new lenses are released. Let me know if you’re missing anything.
