After a significant amount of work I am a little proud to present you the complete Sony FE list. The idea was to create a tool which makes it quick to look up and compare the specifications of every fullframe E-mount lens with CPU. You can reach it quickly at list.philllipreeve.net.
The list isn’t in it’s final form but it felt like it was time let it into the wild. If you have any suggestions on how to improve it or spot a mistake please leave a comment.
As always: Sharing the list is much appreciated :).
You can easily spend a fortune on lenses for your Sony E-mount camera but you don’t have to. These lenses all cost less than $499 and give you great image quality on your a7/a7II/a7III/a7rII-series camera.
For each lens we have summarized the defining strengths and weaknesses. We hope this will make it easier to decide for yourself, if the lens could fit your needs. Please make sure to check out our in-depth reviews for a much more detailed discussion of each lens.
There are certainly other lenses which would deserve a spot in this list but we only include lenses we have used ourselves, so please don’t take it personal if we haven’t included your favorite lens.
Voigtlander 5.6/12 M39
Compared to the DSLR lenses (like the Samyang 14mm 2.8) this lens is ridiculously small. This is a lens that will always easily fit into your bag, which is great if you not intend to shoot this wide on a regular basis. With the filter adapter it is even possible to use standard 77mm filters.
You should be aware of: The corners never reach excellent levels, huge vignetting, slow, not a good match for A7r.

The Voigtlander 75mm F1.5 is a very compact yet fast medium tele. In this review I test it’s performance on the Sony a7 series. Users of a Leica M should also gain a few insights from this review but I haven’t used it on a M.
