Lens Rentals: Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G MTF Results

Lensrentals ran their MTF test on the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G and the results are very good. Not only is the Sony 12-24mm an extremely sharp lens, but it’s actually very small for its design. Sony’s latest batch of lenses has been quite good, with the exception of some quality control issues.

“The MTF results tell you if the lens should be a sharp lens, and the results here indicate that it should. That makes it worth further investigation for those of you interested in this focal length. It’s one of the more impressive Sony offerings that have come out; reasonable price, excellent MTF, reasonable sample variation.

There is something that is more interesting to me in the bigger picture, though. Sony has made this lens smaller than the others in this range, which will be nice sitting on an FE camera. And they’ve done that without the customary ‘Sony surcharge’, which is nice on  your wallet. At this point, I can’t help but be very impressed.”

    The sample pictures I’ve seen taken with this lens don’t look as sharp toward the edges as ones taken with the Canon 11-24, but OLAF’s measurements dictate that at least they should be even. If everything is as rosy as is painted, this lens in and on itself will be reason enough to get an A7R/A7RII.
