Fullframe E-Mount (FE) lenses

These lenses all cover a full frame sensor as used in the Sony a7, a7r, a7s, a7II, a7rII, a7sII. They can of course be use on APS-C cameras like the Sony a6000 as well.

APS-C E-mount (E) lenses

These lenses do not cover the full frame, they are meant to be used with Sony’s APS-C cameras like the a6000 or a6300.

  1. Hi Phillip:

    Any views on the new Sony 85mm/F1.8 versus the older 85mm G.Master. I am literally just walking in to the Sony ecosystem and am very keen to get one at this focal length for portraiture.

    I am also looking to get something in the 35mm range. A little homework tells me that the Sigma 1.4 35mm might be the sharpest one, even when compared to the Sony’s native lens.

    Thanks you your blog, I have a decent array of Minolta’s in the 50mm range. Any other recommendations on what other native lens I should get shall be very much appreciated.

      1. Many thanks for your prompt response. Just finished reading through your EXCELLENT review of the FE 16-35. Its one of the lenses I am thinking about. Do you think it makes sense to get it alongside a 35mm prime? I do not want to go crazy in the GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) however I want to get a good lens. I was initially thinking of getting a used Canon 16-35 and adapting it to Sony however the more I read, the more I am leaning toward getting a native for auto focus especially because the price difference isn’t much (Sony-Trade-in Promotion).

        I look forward to your review of the new 1.8 85mm versus the G.Master especially considering the almost $1000 dollar difference. I am sure the bokeh alone cannot be worth the additional$1k but I am not expert and would need guidance.

        1. I have both the FE 1635 and the Voigtlander 35 so I think it makes sense. But I have way to many lenses 😉

          Don’t expect a review of the FE85 too soon, I am more focused on manual lenses at the moment and Jannik who owns the GM85 is so happy with it that he won’t be tempted to try the FE85.

          1. Hahah, I believe that feedback from Jannik to be consistent with the wider set of users. Thank you for your responses again.
