Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM 3-Way Shootout vs Sony 12-24mm f/4 and Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2: Rock Creek Meadow

See my Sony mirrorless wish list.

This shootout at 25mm follows the shootout at 18mm. It looks at the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM vs the Sony 12-24mm f/4 G vs the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon.

Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM 3-Way Shootout @ 24mm: Rock Creek Meadow

Includes images up to full resolution.

A far field scene was chosen to best show the differences, since far field scenes more easily reveal lens sharpness and asymmetry across a near-far zone. In this case, the behaviors are laid bare to see; I think this is one of the more remarkable comparisons I’ve shot, if only to show how zooms can misbehave badly.

The behavior of the two zooms is 'wild' enough that this comparison is best appreciated by scrolling around the full resolution images to see the weird things going on. The Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 anchors the comparison and acts as a reference by showing consistency across the frame.
