Sony FE 50/2.8 Macro – Hands On (Photokina 2016)

Sony FE 50/2.8 Macro lens, made for FF (but can be used also for APS-C of course) Sony E-mount cameras, was somehow quietly announced few weeks before Photokina 2016.

During our reviews of Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 and Zeiss Batis 18/2.8, we mentioned several times also Batis 25/2.

Great exposure latitude of Sony A7r sensor!

I just wanted to share with you, the story of one image, that could have been lost forever, if shot on film or some other digital cameras such as my (otherwise lovely and trusty) Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

Zeiss Batis 18/2.8 Review

To make a complex review as we like to do here, we need to have lens for at least 3 weeks, ideally for much longer. When the new gear comes however, producers can't give as testing samples for so long, thus we can either lower the quality of our tests or wait until it become…

Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 Rolling Review
