Unlimited expression for content creators
Explore new artistic possibilities and precise creative control with Cinema Lens Series – the refined expression of Sony’s technological expertise for uncompromising content creators. Due for release by the end of 2020, the FE C 16-35mm T3.1 G is the first of a range of Cinema Lens Series models. Its wide angle zoom lens is optimised for digital cinematography, documentary production and other premium content produced with full-frame cameras such as the FX9 and VENICE.​

Advanced optical design
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.

Smooth, natural bokeh
An ideal partner for the full-frame sensor of Sony’s acclaimed FX9 and VENICE cameras, the consistent T3.1 (F2.8) large aperture and circular 11-blade aperture of the SELC1635G lets professional cinematographers enjoy shallow depth of field and the creation of beautifully smooth bokeh (background defocus) effects.

Precise, responsive manual focus
Linear Response MF enables smooth, lag-free manual focus, allowing DoPs and camera operators to adjust focus accurately and intuitively. The focus ring offers a 120deg large angle of rotation for finer control, with distance scale markers for consistent focus reset during multiple takes. For complete creative control to suit any user including photographers who are used to shooting stills, SELC1635G also offers reversible zoom ring rotation, modes switchable between AF/MF and Full manual, and the option to engage ‘click stops’, providing tactile feedback for precise adjustments of the aperture ring. When the click stops are disengaged, the aperture ring moves smoothly and quietly.

More options for content creators
The SELC1635G has a 0.8mm pitch gear and 114mm lens diameter, which is regarded as the industry standard in cinematography, providing compatibility with a wide range of accessories include matte boxes and follow focus systems.

Detachable servo zoom
The included servo unit provides comfortable fingertip control for smooth, gradual zooms suitable for a slow moving drama or promotional video. Servo and Manual control are switchable by the button on the lens unit, and while set to servo, you can control zoom via camera’s handle or grip zoom.
Also, the servo can be detached if preferred, making the lens lighter and more portable.

Fast, accurate AF and AE
The SELC1635G fully supports the Enhanced Hybrid phase/contrast detection autofocus (AF) and Auto Exposure (AE) capabilities of the FX9 full-frame camera. This breakthrough technology allows you to concentrate on framing while the camera and lens work seamlessly together to maintain focus on subjects with shallow depth of field.

The addition of video specific features further include a detachable servo zoom, 0.8mm pitch gear and engageable ‘click stops’ for responsive feedback. Professional movie makers, documentary makers and broadcasters will instantly feel at home with this lens and benefit from extremely high quality optics combined with a classic 16-35mm wide angle zoom range.
