Review: Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM

It’s been a long, long break between articles, as I’ve been absolutely swamped at my day job, finding little time to shoot and even less time to write.  I have a backlog of thoughts and images to go through, and today I’m taking a look at Sony’s professional grade telezoom, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 …

Review: Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

The Sony full-frame E-Mount lens lineup is beginning to get crowded at the 85mm focal length, but Sony’s latest entry, the FE 85mm f/1.8, is the first to come in at a relatively affordable price: $598.  The lens joins the existing Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 ($1199), the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 ($1399) and the Sony …

First Impressions – Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

So, I just got my copy of the new FE 85mm f/1.8, and I’ll be putting it through the usual paces over the course of the next week or two, but I wanted to get out some initial impressions from my first day with the lens. This lens is the fourth 85mm lens created for …

Review: Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon T*

Zeiss has been making waves the past few years, and their two lines in the full-frame Sony E-Mount have largely been well received.  Today I’m looking at the wide-angle member of the autofocus 25mm f/2 Batis.  This lens is a new optical formula based on the Distagon design, rather than the Biogon design that is …

Review: Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS

Sony has been heavily concentrating on fleshing out the full frame E-mount system with quality lenses, which is something that they didn’t really do with their APS-C e-mount lineup. As such, less than two years after the introduction of the A7, the FE lineup has grown into a rather full featured system.  Today, I review …

Review: Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Distagon T*

Sony’s been fleshing out their full frame FE lens lineup for E-Mount fairly quickly over the past year and a half, as the total FE system is now up to 11 native AF lenses.  One of the newest lenses to hit the street is aimed squarely at the professional and enthusiast with the no-compromises Zeiss …

Review: Sony E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS

Last August, Sony announced not one, but two constant f/4 standard zoom lenses for their APS-C mirrorless cameras: The Carl Zeiss 16-70mm f/4 OSS (Reviewed Here) and Sony’s first G lens for the E-Mount: The PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS, which I’ll take a close look at today.  The 18-105mm f/4 covers a nearly 6x …

Review: Carl Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8 Sonnar T* ZA

With the introduction of Sony’s A7 and A7r mirrorless cameras, the E-Mount gains new life, but also some new complications.  Existing E-Mount lenses are designed to cover an APS-C image circle, and as such, a new line of lenses is required to cover the full-frame image sensors in these new Sony flagships.  When the cameras …
