Sony FE 28mm f/2 Aperture Series: Knobby Boulder in Creek (Sony A7R)

 

Get Sony FE 28mm f/2 at B&H Photo.

The Sony FE 28mm f/2 is a compact and lightweight performer at a relatively modest price. Following up on the close-range Dolls series, this outdoors scene evaluates the Sony 28mm f/2 at a medium focusing distance.

In Guide to Mirrorless:

Sony FE 28mm f/2 Aperture Series: Knobby Boulder (A7R)

Includes entire-frame images up to 24 megapixels as well as large crops from f/2 through f/13.

The Sony 28mm f/2 is quite sharp, but I have some reservations about its excessive distortion because correcting that distortion degrades image quality in peripheral areas. But it offers a strong performance overall, and any JPEG shooter need have no concern at all about the distortion—just enable distortion correction in camera and poof no issue.

Still, I don’t feel any urgency to buy it, unlikes the Zeiss Batis lenses. And yet a 28mm f/2 is a very nice focal length, and the lens is a perfect match for the Sony 35mm f/2.8 and Sony 55mm f/1.8 in terms of size/weight and performance style, all designed by Zeiss.
