Sony Lens Filter Size & Lens Hood Charts

If you’re looking to add a polarizer, UV, or ND filter to your lens, you’ll need to know the lens diameter/filter size. Here’s a lens filter size chart for Sony E Mount and A Mount lenses.

Here are the lens diameters and corresponding filter sizes for common Sony E Mount and A Mount lenses.

Note that my focus here is on lenses that accept screw-in filters on the front. Some lenses, such as very wide-angle or fisheye lenses, don’t have a filter thread on the front and can’t accept this style of filter. And some very long telephoto lenses use a system of drop-in filters at the rear of the lens.

Some focal lengths have multiple lenses, so it’s important to match the other parts of the name. For example, Sony has multiple 70-200mm zooms, and they don’t all take filters of the same size.

This is an ongoing list. Sony doesn’t yet have the same extensive catalog of lenses of competitors like Canon or Nikon, but they still have an impressively broad lineup. I’m starting with their current range and adding older lenses to it as the opportunity arises. Please feel free to send through any additions, requests, or corrections.

If you don’t see your lens listed here and want to find out the filter size, it’s often marked on the lens itself. For a more detailed guide, see my post on finding the lens diameter.

A quick way to filter down from this long list is to use the chart’s search bar to narrow down by focal length (eg. type in “70-200”).

Things Worth Knowing

Many lenses come with a dedicated lens hood included. If you need a replacement or a spare, in most cases, the manufacturer makes it available as an accessory.

The official lens hoods tend to have a large markup, ending up much more expensive than they should be for what they are. In some rare cases, it can get out of hand with lens hoods costing hundreds or even over a thousand dollars (yes, really).

The good news, though, is that you can often find aftermarket alternatives that are significantly less expensive. They often work just as well. They’re usually listed under the same model number as the original.

For the lens hood column, if I’ve left it blank, it means I haven’t been able to confirm a dedicated lens hood for that lens. In those cases, a generic non-dedicated lens hood might do the job. That usually requires some trial and error to check for lens vignetting and effectiveness on that specific lens.
