Yongnuo recently unveiled a new autofocus YN35mm F2S DF DSM wide angle lens, its second prime lens for Sony E mount, which is now available to buy on Amazon. It is a small, lightweight, and versatile full-frame fast lens suitable for landscape, night scenes, street, food, and other genres.
It is quite compact and weighs only 295g. The maximum aperture of f/2 should provide a soft blur effect, as well as the ability to shoot in low light conditions.
The optical design consists of 9 elements in 8 groups. There is one aspherical lens to compensate for aberrations, one low dispersion lens for distortion suppression of wide-angle optics, and two ultra-high refractive lenses, as well as a multi-layer anti-reflective nano-coating.
The bayonet is metal, well-machined. Gold plated contacts offer improved signal conductivity for reliable autofocus, diaphragm control, and oxidation resistance.
The lens comes with digital stepping motors (DSM), compared with traditional DC motors, DSM has a fast start-stop response, high focusing accuracy, and quieter focusing actions, which are suitable for photo shooting and video recording.
The lens’s USB Type-C connector should make it easier to download firmware updates. We can also note the rather neat and nice design of the new lens.
