Two Sony FE 28mm f/2 Aperture Series: 'Waterfall View of Mt Conness Sub-Peak' and 'Snowstorm Rolls in Over Saddlebag Lake' (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. But does it deliver the goods, and at which apertures?

Sony 28mm f/2 Aperture Series: Snowstorm Rolls in Over Saddlebag Lake (A7R)

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

The results from these two aperture series point to some very firm conclusions about the Sony 28mm f/2. Other material confirms the conclusions in these two series.

I consider these two series definitive, both on aspects of visual impact (very nice) but also on the technical performance aspects (not so nice).

I recommend that wide angle shooters stick to the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon, which is in another league above the Sony 28mm f/2.

Miles from the car, what a nervous thrill to see a June snowstorm move in powerfully and fast. Fun and trepidation—I kept on shooting.
