Hi Folks,

If I may, I'd like your thoughts on an FE 85mm 1.8 I picked up yesterday. This is actually the second copy I've tried. The first one didn't make it out of the store because it was so de-centered I could pick it up by enlarging the image on the rear screen (left side extremely soft). I had them bring my current copy from their warehouse.

I haven't had a chance to take it out for a fuller test yet. I took a couple of shots of an ISO 12233 chart at 1.8 and 8 and converted Raw files to jpg using Capture One 10.1. Only adjusted white balance.

To my eyes bottom corners and upper right are softer than the upper left.

Comments?

Thanks in advance,

Keith

The f/1.8 shot looks great. The f/8 doesn't look as good as the f/1.8, but it doesn't look bad, either.

DXO rated this lens really well. Not that I personally pay any real attention to that but some do

Are you getting them shipped to you? Could be an issue with transit.

Personal anecdote, take with grain of salt. But I noticed that the Zeiss Batis lens we received was extremely well-packaged with TONS of packaging foam, large bubble wrap, and the lens was nested tightly in a shaped foam in the box. Our Batis 85 lens has been impeccable. We even got a (presumably) custom MTF chart of our copy of the lens.

Meanwhile every Sony lens we've received has been loosely packed with only a very thin layer of bubble wrap, and the lens has tons of space

Roughly half of the Sony lenses I've received have also arrived with one or both caps off the lens, loose inside the lens pouch. Thankfully, none of them have managed to scratch the front element, but I imagine it does happen.
