January 12 2009


I got a little carried away with the lens reviews updates, and decided to include some MTF charts (on G and CZ) and internal lens illustrations on most Sony lenses.  Go here for an example, and scroll down to the last product shots.  I pulled these from the Sony pdf lens & accessories brochure, though Sony hasn’t updated it since the Carl Zeiss 16-80mm came out, so there’re about six lenses missing.  Funny, the chart still shows “the complete line…” with stuff they don’t even sell anymore, like the A100, F36AM and F56AM flash units.  Earth to Sony; time for a little brochure make-over.

I’ve also implemented more consistency in my reviews when describing certain test results with words such as “harsh,” “moderate,” or “soft” etc.  The discrepancies are more apparent when reading through a number of reviews quickly (like recently) than when I’m writing a review up every few weeks or so. Speaking of which, up next is the super ultra-wide Sigma 12-24mm F/4.5-5.6 review, look for it late this week.
