It would be really hopeful for those of us still deciding on the 35 GM if you would briefly outline any processing applied. If SOOC please let us know.

Thanks !


That would be helpful, although perhaps slightly difficult to say for each photo? There can be a lot of moving parts to outline. Perhaps just either the category of SOOC or processed at all would be a good start for anyone posting, at least in the initial period when not many have the lens.

My photos above all involve post processing. Nothing heavy, but some do have contrast adjusted. If the scene is demanding for dynamic range I am often pushing highlights down and shadows/blacks up and then upping contrast to compensate for the resulting flattening of the image. I try to keep it somewhat balanced.

The picture of the woman with the hat had quite a bit though, including some film emulation. The beach pictures, much less.

I shoot only RAW so images are often flat coming out of the camera and I donít like the look of them until they have been adjusted a bit. But I understand the interest in untouched photos to see only what the lens is producing.

I'm just amazed by the close-up capability. The combination of exceptional sharpness + high-res sensor turns this nearly into a macro lens . These are SooC (embedded) jpegs, but please keep in mind you can customized these quite much. I have mine setup to boost contrast, saturation, a bit clarity, lower the highlights and up the shadows a bit. Not sure if that's neutral processing any more .
Also, the GM seems to produce one of the nicest bokeh balls @f2 I've seen to date...

Agree, close-up capability is one of the first things I was pleasantly surprised about

Nice! That is a phenomenal sunstar at f/16. This wait is killing me. Hoping to have in hand for a trip down to the sand dunes first weekend of May.

Cursed with morning low lying marine layer and afternoon blank sky, I did not have ideal conditions to check out the 35GM for landscape and architecture shots today. However, the conditions were fine for putting it through its paces in infrared. Sony lenses, the GM line in particular, have not been friendly to infrared historically, the 24GM being quite good at 590nm and below and the ZA 16-35/4 being exceptions.

I was delighted with the performance of the 35GM at 590nm as well as with the Kolari IR-Chrome filters. No hot spots at any aperture (YAY!!!...surprisingly tough to find in a 35mm lens). At the more challenging 720nm filter, it was fine through f/8 with essentially no hot spot. At f/9-11, you pick up a little diffuse one, easy to correct. Between f/13 and 16, there is a real but small hot spot (see below) but still likely in the realm of correctable without high skill level.

While no one is likely to buy this lens for this particular feature, the 35GM handily outperforms the 35ZA in IR and is also far better than my beloved Zeiss ZE/ZF 35/1.4 in infrared.

For this one, ignore the concentric rings, as that is a flare issue with my inability to use a hood with the filter configuration I have. I have MASSIVELY accentuated the contrast (LR contrast = 100) to make the hot spot more visible. It is pretty marginal...even at f/16

Thanks guys!

Here are a few more from today's visit to Eastern Market - my favorite spot in Detroit.
I don't usually shoot street wide open, but I wanted to see how the GM performed.

Some nice images there with great tonality. Dare I say they have a bit of a Leica look to them.

How's the focus speed and accuracy compared to the Sigma 1.2?

I prefer the Sigma 1.2 look but might settle for this if the focus is significantly faster and just as accurate.
