Itís got strong competition from the Sony 90/2.8 G, which is great too.


I'm ashamed to admit that I never tried the Sony 90/2.8G.
The variation talk keep me away from it. @DavidBM@@@ said his copy is even sharper than his CV 110 at macro magnifications.


Right. It took me three copies to get a Sony 90 without tilt, and Roger Cicala's data suggest this wouldn't be unusual. And I'll put up with more slight difference between corners than some here.

I think the slight contrast and resolution advantage at life size I found for the Sony 90 (on a par by 1:2) ought not affect anyone's buying choices (especially given the difference is larger, in the opposite direction, at infinity). Both are terrific, and the difference in haptics and overall use cases is what you should be moved by.

(in the mean time I have both, and probably shouldn't)


It looks like the Sony 90/2.8G deserves a lot of credit for being AF and keeping up or even exceeding in performance when compared to many newer and high IQ macro lenses. One could say it's not as corrected for axial CA but once it's stopped down to f/4, things get equalized even there.


The 90 G Macro is a hell of a lens for close ups and the ease of switching from AF to MF by pulling and pushing the focus ring comes in handy when shooting flowers and a slight breeze comes and goes. I cannot imagine a Sony shooter not having this lens or at least until of late. Now there are other lenses that are pretty sweet too.

It is kind of a funky looking lens like no other Sony lens but narrow diameter fits in my cargo shorts better than most. It is great for macro and close ups like shots or at car shows.

Sometimes the results are better with the 90 G and sometimes the 100 STF when shooting the same flowers or objects no particular rhyme or reason that I can figure out.

I am not wild about it in fact do not use it for anything other than close it is almost too clinical as a med tele or used as a regular lens. The 100 STF is ten times better for these shots in IMO or 85 Loxia or 85 GM or CV 110.

I am using my 100-400 GM and even my 400 GM also now for flowers & 100 STF but for close ups of cars and other objects the 90 G is one of my favorites.

The last shot that is out of focus I included because the background looks like a Van Gogh painting what beautiful bokeh.
