Here are some test image sets from the Sony FE 24-70mm F/2.8 GM. There are five full size images at each marked focal length; 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 70mm; from F/2.8 to F/11. The test scene is similar to what you see in the image above, at each focal length. Sony A7R used for review.
I’ll make some crops from the centers, mid-sections, and corners and put them side by side as I’ve done in the past, but that will be included in the review.
So far, sharpness and contrast seem first rate, but there’s more to a good lens than resolution, so we’ll check the other features and qualities in the full review.
For right now, click the F/number links below for the full size image, and see what you think. All sets were taken using the same shutter speed for each aperture setting and each focal length. Images are Jpegs with no adjustments made, in-camera or otherwise.
Next up for a comparison, the Sony FE 55mm F/1.8 and this lens at 55mm. See how this very expensive zoom competes against a superb prime!
