Sony FE 40mm F2.5 G Full-frame ultra-com

September 04, 2021
Bought this lens for a quick lightweight prime lens. Super light and compact. 40mm is an amazing focal length too, not too wide, not too narrow. I was able to get decent landscapes and great portraits. The color and clarity of its pictures is spot on. Being able to manually set the aperture is a definite plus. The Bokeh is unreal. I see this being my go to lens for my landscape photography. The aperture ring is solid. It’s not going to move around accidentally. Auto focus is superb. Excellent walk-around lens. ** Used with a Sony a7iii mostly portrait and some landscape shots. ***disclaimer that I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion***...

really good product

October 06, 2021
I purchased this lens in hope that it would be smaller and still have great quality for travel. My current lenses are really big and good but carrying them around is a burden at times. This lens does everything I need and is compact and fast and works very well. The bokeh is extremely good for a lens of this size. I am still learning to use it --- but it is incredible. I and my wife love to cruise and love to take pictures in the lower light - this lens will do so without having the huge lens I have had to carry in the past. This is a great lens and so worth the price... will take it on the cruise ship in January and am sure that will be great.

Awesome lens for when size matters

September 08, 2021
Build Quality: The SEL40F25G is an objectively well-built lens. The body is made out of aluminum and feels nice in the hand. The aperture ring clicks into place nicely and the focus ring is buttery smooth. For the size, it’s well put together, premium feeling lens. Performance: The SEL40F25G is a very quick lens. The autofocus is quick and works very quietly. Bokeh is nice and creamy as well. I do wish it were a bit faster, but understand that some compromises need to be made to make the lens as compact as it is. Compared to some of the Zeiss Batis primes and GM zooms I have, I do still prefer the images coming out of those lenses, but they also cost considerably more. Size: I got an a7c for the days where my a9 + GM lenses are just too heavy to lug around. The SEL40F25G is a perfect complement for the a7c. It’s a smidge taller than the a7c’s kit lens and much shorter than my 50 f/1.8. This keeps everything nice and compact while still capturing shots with excellent quality. Overall, the SEL40F25G is a great lens. There are similar lenses that are faster, smaller, or cheaper, but the SEL40F25G strikes a nice balance between build quality, speed, and size that is hard to match in the market. So why not 5 stars? It comes down to price. I understand that there is a lot of engineering that goes into making something this good and this small, but it's a pricey proposition. *Disclaimer: I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion...
