Sony FE 100mm STF review at Photozone: “outstanding bokeh”

Photozone tested the Sony FE 100mm STF lens:

The Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS is certainly a controversial lens. In terms of sheer depth-of-field power and speed, it is a mediocre lens. However, the quality of the bokeh is second to none.
Coming to a final conclusion isn’t really easy because you can be very opinionated about the pros and cons of the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS. However, in my book it can produce stunning results and it alone is a reason to jump on the Sony bandwagon if you can afford it and if a truly outstanding bokeh is just your thing. Therefore … highly recommended!

100mm STF at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

Sony 16-35mm GM reviews by Imaging Resource and Colby Brown

We have two reviews of the new 16-35mm lens:

Imaging Resource writes:

I was very impressed with the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 despite the limited time I had with it. On both the Sony A7R II and the A9 it focused extremely quickly and with pinpoint accuracy while delivering extremely sharp photos with beautiful bokeh. This is most certainly a lens to be excited about when it releases later this year.

Colby Brown writes:

After using the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 GM this summer in Iceland and finally getting my own copy just before I published this review, I think it is safe to say that Sony knocked it out of the park with this lens. In a relatively small light body, they managed to pack in a ton of optical quality into this lens. Not only it is incredibly sharp corner to corner, but the images that come out of this lens are simply gorgeous. Between the bokeh, contrast and texture detail…there is a lot to love.

Sony 24-240mm FE lens review by Ken Rockwell: “forget about any fixed-focal length lenses, macro lenses, this lens replaces them all”

Ken Rockwell tested the Sony 24-240mm FE lens and the conclusion is:

Get one! This lens does everything. Even better, get this lens and simply forget about any fixed-focal length lenses, macro lenses, or anything like the 24-70/2.8 GM or 70-200/2.8 GM; this lens replaces them all.
Get the lens at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

He also tested the 28mm FE lens:

This is a swell little fast wide lens for full-frame, and a swell fast normal lens on APS-C. It’s tiny, nearly weightless and works great. If you want a tiny fixed lens, here you go.
Get the lens at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.
