SHOOTOUT: Two Samples of Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II vs Voigtlander FE 50mm f/2 APO-Lanthar, Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM: Deck and Roof

This page scrutinizes performance of two brand-new samples of the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II, using the Cosina Voigtlander FE 50mm f/2 APO-Lanthar and Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM as reference lenses.

Sample variation is often an issue with sophisticated lens designs, but here it is in spades. Results repeated on three different days; this is the better of the three attempts at showing the best results.

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Shootout @ 50mm vs Voigtlander FE 50/2 APO-Lanthar. Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM (Deck and Roof)

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/2.8 through f/8 for all 4 lenses, plus crops.

Up next are similar comparisons against theVoigtlander FE 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar and at 24mm vs Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM. Because the best way to get a good sense of a zoom is to compare it to the best lenses in its range.
