Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 Distagon ZA

In my review of the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 Distagon ZA in Guide to Mirrorless are published a number of examples at f/1.4 using the bad sample previously discussed.

The images are shown in part as an aid to understanding the asymmetric blur that can result from a lens that is “off”.

And yet the overall look of the images is still worthwhile in getting a feel for the rendering style, which is very nice, with high contrast overall, similar to its FE 35/2.8 Sonnar and FE 55/1.8 Sonnar siblings.

Examples at f/1.4, Bad Sample Lens (Pescadero Creek, A7R)

Aperture series showing and discussing lens performance with stopping down

Sizes up to 6048 wide are included for examination (24 megapixels). Commentary on each image is made, including evaluation of the correction for chromatic aberrations.

The 35/1.4 Distagon is going back to be exchanged for another sample, along with the Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon and the Sony 35mm f/2.8 Sonnar for some comparisons.

UPDATE: I’ve added an aperture series showing and discussing lens performance with stopping down, analyzing how much stopping down is needed ot overcome the right side blur.
