Design and Features
The lens barrel is compact, of moderate weight, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
The focusing ring is not physically coupled with the focusing mechanism and works electronically (focus-by-wire) - turning of the ring actuates an electric motor that moves the focusing group of the lens to the proper position to achieve sharp focus.
The lens lacks focusing mode switch, therefore you have to set the automatic or manual focus mode from the camera.
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 49 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
The lens is compatible with ultra-wide adapter SEL075UWC which "turns" this lens into 21 mm and fisheye adapter SEL057FEC which allows 180 degrees angle of view at effective focal length of 16 mm. Maximum aperture of each converter when mounted on the FE 28mm F.2 is F2.8 and F3.5 respectively. In a first for α lens converters, corresponding EXIF data for each adapter is generated when they are attached to the lens.
