Sony FE 28mm f/2 Aperture Series: Gnarled Stump in Snowstorm, Hoover Wilderness (Sony A7R)

 

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

The Sony FE 28mm f/2 is a compact and lightweight performer great for outdoors carry and use.

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 at this focusing distance, 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.

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. And yet, 25mm is very close to 28mm, so the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 should be pondered also, and price may be a factor of course.
