Laowa 15mm f/2 FE: Rolling Review and Comparisons Jul 19, 2017
Laowa 15mm f/2 FE: Rolling Review and Comparisons
In an effort to provide our readers with the latest and most up to date info, I will continue to update this review with additional tests and details as they become available.

Introduction:

Venus Optics prides themselves on providing “unique, practical and affordable lenses.” In fact over the last four years they have launched some appealing lenses into the marketplace.

The Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is their first ultra wide lens designed for the Sony E-mount. We were offered a production model to test for a few weeks and here’s a glimpse into what we found.

First - I was curious about many aspects of this lens including resolution, contrast and aberration control. Since I own great number of native lenses that cover the 15mm focal lens, I thought it would be interesting to compare them side-by-side at infinity distance and find out how they differ...

LR test: Sharpness Tests of the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Jun 30, 2017
LR test: Sharpness Tests of the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8
Roger Cicala at LensRentals just posted MTF and variance testing for the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8.
There are side-by-side comparisons to the similar speed Batis 85/1.8 and faster lenses like the FE 85/1.4 GM and Sigma 85/1.4 Art.

Here is an except from Roger's summary:

"So was this exciting or what? I’m sure the answer to that question is dependent on who you are and if you appreciate nerding out to MTF charts. We have a reasonable performance 85mm f/1.8 lens at a fairly reasonable price in FE mount now. It isn’t cool, or sexy, or going to change the way you do photography and see the world around you. But it’s a useful option to have, and I bet it finds its way into a lot of camera bags.."

  4. Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 Technology

  6. DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-25600

LensRentals very impressed by the FE 12-24/4G Jun 27, 2017
LensRentals very impressed by the FE 12-24/4G
Roger Cicala at LensRentals just posted MTF and Variance Testing for the new Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G.
Looking at the results, the new Sony ultra-wide seems to be flat field without much astigmatism while maintaining high resolution and contrast. It did very well against the much heavier competition.

Here is an except from Roger's summary:

"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."
