September 9, 2019 Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN (Sony FE) Image Gallery

Sigma was a little slow to adopt to the Sony FE platform despite embracing APS-C e-Mount years ago.  2018 brought retooled versions of a number of their ART series DSLR lenses, though those lenses had clear compromises in size and performance based on their not having been originally developed for Sony.  In 2019, howev [Read more...]

August 30, 2019 Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE Review

It feels like Samyang AF has finally arrived…at least on the Sony FE platform!  For decades Samyang was limited to producing manual focus only lenses, but a few years back they started to try their hands at the more complicated business of autofocus lenses.  The first of these that I reviewed (Samyang AF 50mm F1.

August 28, 2019 Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 Review

I recently completed a six-way comparison of all the currently available autofocusing lenses for Sony’s full frame mirrorless (FE) platform. These lenses cover a wide range of price points, from $379 (all prices USD) for the Viltrox AF 85mm F1.8, to $598 (Sony 85mm F1.8), $699 (Samyang AF 85mm F1.4), $1199 (Zeiss Batis 85m [Read more...]

August 23, 2019 Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 RXD (A046) Review

Tamron released their new 28-78mm F2.8 RXD lens for Sony full frame mirrorless (FE) last year to great fanfare, as it provided a legitimate alternative to the very large and very expensive Sony 24-70mm F2.8 G Master lens.  The 28-75 RXD went on to be the best selling lens of the year (period!) in its […] [Read more...]

August 2, 2019 Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 Image Gallery

Samyang has previously released a couple of very compact autofocusing prime lenses for Sony, though with only moderately wide maximum apertures of F2.8.  People loved the size of the lenses, but the autofocus systems were not always quite there.  Fast forward to 2019 where Samyang has just hit a home run with the AF 85 [Read more...]

July 22, 2019 Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM Image Gallery

One of my main projects for 2019 was a plan to pit all the current autofocus 85mm options on the full frame Sony E-mount platform head to head.  I’ve done something similar for 50mm options (and, to a lesser extent, 35mm options) on Sony.  I’ve done a major 85mm shootout on the Canon platform and […] [Read more...]
