Choose the right lens for your Sony Alpha with the help of our independent knowledge gained by writing many in-depth reviews.
We are a team of four photographers who all use the FE system and this blog is focused on lens reviews. So we have an in-depth knowledge of these lenses not only because we use them all the time but also because we have reviewed most of them in detail. We are also independent from any lens manufacturer and when you check our reviews you will see that we do not hesitate to name any shortcomings of a lens.
In this article we only list lenses which have electronic contacts to communicate aperture and focal length to the camera. There are also quite a few lenses which have an E-mount but no electronic contacts. Most of these are SLR-lenses with a modified mount and we decided against covering these because we think that most of them are not very attractive lenses. We do however cover the Laowa 2/15 and Mitakon 0.95/50 because those are attractive lenses for some photographers.

Voigtländer 5.6/10 (manual focus)
One year after release this 10mm lens is still unique as it is the only non-fisheye lens offering this enormous field of view. You might need to up your composition skills to get the best out of it though. The corners show significant vignetting even stopped down and the resolution in the corners isn’t that great. Apart from that the optics are very fine, especially considering the small size of the lens. On top of that you get great build quality, very good flare resistance and beautiful sunstars.
