There are some lenses I would like to review one day, but the more interesting (read: rare and expensive) they are, the less feasible it is for me to buy them just to write a review.
Thanks to several readers here I already got the opportunity to remove several lenses from this list in the past, but there are still some left:
Sony FE 12-24mm 2.8 GM
Sony FE 14mm 1.8 GM Samyang 18mm 2.8 AF Review coming soon
Sony FE 20mm 1.8 G Samyang 24mm 1.8 AF Review coming soon
Samyang 50mm 1.4 AF MKII
Sony FE 50mm 1.2 GM
Samyang 85mm 1.4 AF MKII
Distortion is one of the classic lens aberrations and comes in various forms. We will have a look at them, see which ones are easy to correct and how to create correction profiles for those lenses with complicated wavy distortion patterns.
We summarize our experience with all the native E-mount and a few manual legacy lenses in the 9-18mm bracket to give you a compact and independent resource for choosing the right super- to ultra-wide-angle lens for your Sony A7 cameras. In this summary we also included some adapted lenses we think are worth mentioning.
We have no association with any lens manufacturer apart from occasionally loaning a lens for a review. Before any short introduction we tell you how long we have used a lens and if we have borrowed it from a manufacturer. But in most cases we have bought the lenses new from retail stores or on the used market.
Many of these lenses are manual focus only (MF) whereas some of them feature auto focus (AF). There is also a noticeable amount of lenses listed here that do not feature electronic contacts to communicate with the camera (no Exif).
If we have left any question unanswered please leave a comment or contact us on social media and we will do our best to answer it.
A few days ago I asked you what you think would be a good platform to get announcements about new posts any maybe also start discussions or simply chatting.
Discord was mentioned quite often in your comments. I did some research – as I didn’t know much about it – and it does indeed offer some features I was looking for. I also like that it is you who decides what you want to see and not some algorithm. So I set up a phillipreeve.net Discord server where already some of you joined.
The king is dead, long live the king! After the Voigtlander 10mm 5.6’s field of view has been matched by the Samyang 10mm 3.5 XP and the Laowa 10-18mm 4.5-5.6 it has now been surpassed by this Laowa 9mm 5.6 FF-RL. Can a lens be wider and at the same time better? Let us try to find out! Lens is being tested on 42mp Sony A7rII and 24mp Leica M10 Last Update: January 2023
