A standard 35mm slightly skewed to a wide-angle lens with built-in VC provides an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.2m. This lens achieves superb imaging performance at full aperture with well-balanced depictive capability. State-of-the-art design and engineering technologies backed by manufacturing know-how culminate in this fine lens and its companion, the SP 45mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F013).

High performance at f/1.8 full aperture
The open aperture is set to f/1.8 with optimised critical properties at a higher level: superb optical performance coupled with a VC system, a shorter MOD, and a well-balanced form factor. Rigorous simulation processes performed throughout the design phase are materialised in distinguished resolving power and beautifully tuned background blur, a prominent feature to a fast-aperture, full-frame compliant optic.

VC (Vibration Compensation) integration sets itself apart
VC really comes into its own when used on high-resolving professional DSLRs which pick up even subtle camera shake. On fast-aperture lenses, VC dramatically extends the ability to shoot handheld under dim light conditions by eliminating camera shake at slower shutter speeds.

USD (Ultrasonic Drive)
The USD actuator converts ultrasonic waves into rotational motion that delivers autofocus with responsiveness, accuracy, and speed without so much as a whisper. The photographer can easily use manual focus at any point while the AF system is operating without having to fumble for a switch.

Get closer than ever before
New MOD specs let photographers shoot at close range, opening a new world of creative opportunities for composition while maintaining image quality.

With an MOD of 0.2m, the SP 35mm offers best-in-class close focusing**. A floating system design feature seamlessly optimises image quality by shifting elements relative to the focus group in close shooting situations. This lens uniquely offers shooting characteristics like a wide-angle macro lens.
