Sony FE 50mm f1.8 review so far

18 Oct 2017 Gordon Laing

The Sony FE 50mm f1.8 is an affordable standard prime lens for Alpha mirrorless cameras with a bright f1.8 focal ratio that's ideal for delivering shallow depth-of-field effects. There's lots of 50mm options for Sony's cameras, but the FE 50mm f1.8 is by far the most affordable with autofocus.

24 Aug 2017 Gordon Laing

The Sony FE 35mm f1.4 ZA is a standard wide prime lens for Sony's mirrorless cameras. It's one of many 35mm lenses now available for the full-frame mirrorless Alphas, but it's the brightest model with autofocus, and a superb performer. Check out my sample images.

The Sony FE 90mm f2.8 Macro G OSS is a medium telephoto for Sony's mirrorless cameras. It's the first Sony Macro corrected for its full-frame bodies, upon which it'll deliver 1:1 / 1x magnification from a distance of 28cm. A sharp performer, check out my sample images in my review-so-far.

17 May 2017 Gordon Laing

Sony's FE 12-24mm f4G is an ultra-wide zoom for its full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Sony FE 16-35mm f2.8 GM review-so-far

17 May 2017 Gordon Laing

Sony's FE 16-35mm f2.8 G Master is a wide zoom for its full-frame mirrorless cameras. The fifth G Master lens, it completes a 'trinity' of f2.8 models, joining the FE 24-70mm f2.8 and FE 70-200mm f2.8. It aims for high resolution and attractive bokeh, while maintaining quality at all distances. I've been shooting with it, so check out my samples!
