December 14 2008


The reviews and updates continue to roll out, this time I have the Sony 20mm F/2.8 ready for your scrutiny.  I’m not sure this super-wide angle lens is for everyone, especially APS-C users, so go to the bottom of the review page and read the final thoughts.  One tidbit; this lens is very sharp in the centers at F/2.8, in fact, if it weren’t for a tiny bit of veiling haze, it would be indistinguishable from the F/4-8 images.  When I did my normal stamp test shot, I could’ve used F/2.8, which would’ve been a first for that shot using the maximum aperture.  I ended up using F/4 because it had the best contrast.
Coming soon will be full frame results for the Minolta 35-70mm F/4, and the Sony 70-200mm F/2.8 G.
