Every Sony APS-C Lens You Can Buy | The Ultimate List

Sony APS-C E-Mount Guide

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. To see the Full Frame E-Mount lenses see my Full Frame Sony Lens Guide.

 

 


The Complete Sony APS-C Lens List


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.

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.

Fujifilm Cinema Lenses


Fujifilm has started making some 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.

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.

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 Chinese, they are made the Japanese way – So they say.

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.
