The SAL-35F18 is a general purpose lens with a fixed focal length. This is relatively inexpensive lens. The big attraction of this lens is likely to be its extra large aperture that is able to let plenty of light in when taking a photo.
The advantages of the large aperture are two fold. First it gives you plenty of control over depth of field and how much of your photo is in sharp focus. Secondly you are able to use much faster shutter speeds. This allows you to hand hold your Digital SLR in lowlight situations where you would otherwise need to use a tripod.
The SAL-35F18 has been designed for use with Digital SLRs with APS-C sized sensors.
