LensRentals 16-35mm f/2.8 GM MTF Tests Aug 12, 2017
LensRentals 16-35mm f/2.8 GM MTF Tests
Roger Cicala at LensRentals just posted MTF and Variance Testing for the new Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM.
There is also a comparison to the FE 12-24mm f/4G, FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA and Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III lenses.

Here is an except from Roger's summary:

"The Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens is an excellent optic at 16mm and 24mm. If you want to shoot wide at f/2.8 on an FE mount camera itís probably the optic of choice. The 16-35 ZA f/4 is a good lens and a lot cheaper if you donít need f/2.8, but the GM is just better optically. Itís not better or worse than the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L Mk III, itís different, and some people will certainly like itís look better.

But if you plan on using it at 35mm, which I generally donít recommend for wide zooms if you have alternatives, well, youíre probably going to go through several copies before you find the one you want. Personally, I think itís a really good 16-24mm f/2.8 zoom that can be used at 35mm if you have to."

Sony FE 100-400/4.5-5.6 GM vs Contax 100-300/4.5-5.6 Jul 31, 2017
Sony FE 100-400/4.5-5.6 GM vs Contax 100-300/4.5-5.6
I've been using the Contax 100-300/4.5-5.6 lens as my main landscape telephoto for a while. I find it to be impressive with high resolution, micro-contrast and gorgeous colors. I rivals many top of the line primes on this range.
It's optimized for the wider range but stopped down it's very good even at 300mm..

I've tested it against Sony's 100-300 G and it was noticeably better. (I'd say much better). How does it compare to the mighty 100-400 GM though? It's a question I want to answer. Should I trade my Contax for the GM and make my bag 495g heavier?___________

DxOmark: FE 100-400mm GM, compact and optically excellent Jul 28, 2017
DxOmark: FE 100-400mm GM, compact and optically excellent
DxOmark says the new Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS lens is a compact and optically excellent tele-zoom

"Sonyís longest lens in the lineup, the Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS performs exceptionally well, especially given that itís a tele-zoom. It has very high levels of sharpness, low fringing and vignetting, all helping it achieve a high DxOMark score. In terms of optical performance, it outperforms the popular Sigma 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 and the Canon EF 100-400mm 4.5-5.6L IS II, and ranks alongside a couple of the pro favorites ó the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG on the Nikon 800E, and the much pricier Canon EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM.

Itís even not far behind the latest iteration of the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 (the DG OS HSM S model). More interestingly perhaps, in terms of sharpness levels, it outperforms them all, even those mounted on the Canon EOS 5Ds R with its higher pixel count sensor."

Laowa 15mm f/2 FE: Rolling Review and Comparisons Jul 19, 2017
Laowa 15mm f/2 FE: Rolling Review and Comparisons
In an effort to provide our readers with the latest and most up to date info, I will continue to update this review with additional tests and details as they become available.

Introduction:

Venus Optics prides themselves on providing ďunique, practical and affordable lenses.Ē In fact over the last four years they have launched some appealing lenses into the marketplace.

The Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is their first ultra wide lens designed for the Sony E-mount. We were offered a production model to test for a few weeks and hereís a glimpse into what we found.

First - I was curious about many aspects of this lens including resolution, contrast and aberration control. Since I own great number of native lenses that cover the 15mm focal lens, I thought it would be interesting to compare them side-by-side at infinity distance and find out how they differ...
