Sony E-Mount Lens Overview (APS-C)

A list of all available APS-C lenses for Sony E-mount cameras.

Only lenses specifically made for APS-C and designed for the shorter flange distance of mirrorless cameras are listed here. Of course you can also use 35mm full frame lenses on APS-C cameras or adapt pretty much any MF lens out there.
Also, I intentionally left out speciality lenses such as cine lenses since those are not relevant for most photographers anyway.

Note: The quality rating is a rough scale for the optical performance and is based on a mixture of my own experience/opinion and the common consensus of reviews on the web and mean the following:

+       = beginner lens, poor optical performance
++    = average, overall good performance
+++ = excellent optical performance

For detailed lens reviews, visit e.g. OpticalLimits, LensTip, DXOMark or or ePhotozine.
