Sony FE 24mm F2.8 G E-mount lens review by Maffe
|Maffe#45741 date: Jul-8-2021|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Not really compared with my other 24mm lenses other than experience from shooting lots of wa lenses over the years.|
|price paid:||560 €|
|positive:||Small and light, a perfect match to the a7c.|
Aperture-ring is a welcome feature to make its return and with the “missing” front dial on the a7c it just makes perfect sense.
Lots of report of bad edge and corner sharpness, nothing I can really relate to. Just put focus where it should be and it’s sharp enough for me.
|negative:||My main use for this lens is street and with a wide angle lens like this zone- and hyperfocal- focus are tools I like to use. But since it’s not hard stops and a focus scale it’s just not possible or just not really practical to perform.|
|comment:||I pit a “3” on distortion since it’s just not really useable without software correction. Now when Adobe update Lightroom it’s not really an issue any longer.|
Focus scale with hard stops would be nice and I’ll trade that aging stuff that declick function of the aperture ring in a heartbeat.
Sony can make a aperture-by-wire so I don’t buy the argument that focus-by-wire make it impossible to implement a really useful feature.
A highly recommended lens!
