Sony E 70-350mm f4.5-6.3 G OSS review - Quality

Quality

To test the optical quality of the new lens I photographed the detailed New York skyline with the lens mounted on an A6600 body at three focal lengths: 70mm, 135mm or thereabouts, and the longest length of 350mm. In each case I’ll present crops from the corner and centre of the image at each aperture for comparison, starting with the view at 70mm as seen here. The red rectangles indicate the areas I’ve cropped.
