Opticallimits Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Review


Sony’s 16-35mm is certainly a good performer if you do not mind software corrections, but it comes at a hefty price. Opticallimits has thoroughly tested the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and while it scored very well resolution wise it was far from perfect.

“The Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM is certainly a good lens but it has a couple of flaws as well. The lens has been optimized for the lower part of the focal length range – which is certainly most important for most buyers anyway. The corner performance isn’t great at fully open aperture except at the sweet spot around 20mm. The performance is decent at longer focal lengths but it stays a little short of the very high exceptations at least. That being said – keep in mind that today’s high resolution sensors are killers. Just have a look what the Canon EOS 5Ds R (50 megapixels) did to the comparable Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L III.
Most will certainly take advantage of image auto-correction either directly in the camera or via a RAW converter thus neither distortions, CAs nor vignetting are real issues. However, the Sony lens has a decent native correction at least when compared to similar DSLR lenses. In the scope of its class, it also has a surprisingly good bokeh.

In terms of build quality, the Sony lens has everything you expect from a professional grade lens. It feels tough and has weather-sealing, The quality of the AF is largely depending on the base camera. On our test camera (A7R II), the speed is adequate for a lens in this class. Keep in mind that the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM is not a small lens. Considering the small camera size, the balance is a bit off in our book – adding a vertical grip to your camera may be worth a thought.”

Lightroom Classic Now Supports Sony Pixel Shift Files (ARQ)


In Adobe’s last update they added support for Sony proprietary pixel shift file format (ARQ) to Lightroom without announcing support. Hopefully, this is a sign that they plan to more broadly support the format/technique because you still must merge 4 ARW pixel shift files with a program like Sony Imaging Edge to create an ARQ file that is ready for processing in Lightroom. I haven’t really used pixel shift myself due to the amount of work needed to maximize results, but the more convenient they make the technology to use the more likely it is that Sony a7RIII owners will try the technology out.

Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS Recent Reviews

I’d really like to buy some long glass for one of my cameras and I am heavily leaning towards the Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS, but part of me wants to wait for the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS. I really like the Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS with 1.4x Teleconverter, but I can’t help but feel that it’s a little overpriced and that the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS might be a better investment for me. Either way, I haven’t seen many complaints about the 100-400mm and it is plenty versatile.
