Sony 12-24mm f/4G Aperture Series @ 12mm: Raindrops Fall on Dana Lake (A7R II)

See my Sony mirrorless wish list.

 

This series at 12mm, from f/4 through f/11 shows the far field performance across the frame as well as how well close range sharpness does near the edges at close range—quite a variance. The series makes clear how much stopping down is needed for peak results on a near-far scene like this.

Sony 12-24mm f/4G Aperture Series: Raindrops Fall On Dana Lake

Includes images up to full resolution from f/4 through f/11.

See also the uncorrected vs corrected distortion for this scene.

The about $1698 Sony 12-24mm f/4G is a nicely versatile lens covering the ultrawide range. At this point I can recommend it from 12mm to 18mm, but not at the long end.

This coming week, I will be shooting the Sony 12-24mm f/4G against the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM, which has just arrived today.

I’m taking delivery of my Sprinter photography adventure van on August 5th in Reno, from thence before any upfitting it will get a trial run stubbed out with simple table and chair, bed platform, etc. I hope to publish from the field, as is my plan for the Sprinter van
