Well let me start by saying Wow but this is also not a fair test for this lens as its a character lens and not really into the corners kind of optic. Now having said that its a amazing piece of glass and as I go along here you will see that but Big Bronco wall is brutal on a lens like this and your not going to see the new Sony 50 performance wide open with no CA. But on center this lens is brilliant and as I wrote Fred earlier what i notice at 1.4,1.6,1.8 unlike the jumps we see in the 50 and GM 85 this lens is more subtle jumps just really a touch more contrast. Whats that mean well 1.4 is killer on center. But the lens has a lot of falloff and with that comes amazing color, texture , pop , vignetting and a 3d look to beat the band and nice bokeh. Its just sexy as all get out and it truly is a character lens with a great look to it. Is it a landscape lens well I leave that for you to decide. But coming from the RXr1 II which is a fantastic optic that just did not get along with me and my workflow. Yea that stinks because I really really like it but I don't want to get into all that but this looks to be something I have been after and i been watching this lens for a long time , i just needed someone to twist my arm a little. No names but he owns the place.
Now truth be told the 24-70 GM was the intended landscape optic but having this in the bag might be interesting. Now there is a lot of talk about a Kolari Mod but I don't want to get into that but my body has a lot of mileage on it like if i calculate right about 50k on the A7rII so down the road i may do that mod. Will see
So here is Big Bronco wall test that I always do with every lens I buy. Don't let the beginning deter you it gets better.
