Experience beautiful cinematic images, with the exceptional corner-to-corner resolution expected from a Sony G lens. A consistent T3.1 (F2.8) large aperture, from wide to telephoto, delivers stunning background bokeh and depth.
Adjust focus, zoom and iris with smooth, consistent precision. Parfocal optics and precise control rings provide versatile, repeatable cinematography with large-format cameras like the VENICE, PXW-FX9 and α mirrorless cameras.
In addition to familiar manual control, the detachable servo unit gives you access to the latest film-making tools, unique to Sony's E-mount system. Leverage fast and precise auto focus for run-and-gun shooting, or powerful servo zoom, rack focusing and iris control—directly from your camera, remote or even smartphone, to enhance both creativity and workflow efficiency.
Two XA (Extreme Aspherical) lens elements and three aspheric elements minimise distortion, curvature and astigmatism. Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements suppress colour distortion, while an advanced nano AR (Anti Reflection) coating on optical surfaces drastically reduces flare and ghosting. The floating focus mechanism is optimised for motion picture applications, ensuring outstanding resolution and very low distortion at any shooting distance.
The SELC1635G features a smooth and silent Linear Response MF drive, to deliver lag-free manual focus for accurate and intuitive DoP (Director of Photography) and camera operator control. The geared focus ring offers a long-throw (140-degree) rotation for fine control, with stops and a clear distance scale for consistent focus pulls and resets during multiple takes. Catering for a range of film-makers, it additionally offers reversible zoom-ring rotation and the option to engage aperture click-stops, providing tactile feedback for precise adjustment.
Impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasises a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist's vision.
