First Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8 review!

 

This is the first review of an FE lens. The Australian guys from Photoreview (Click here) published the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE review:

The review lens proved capable of exceeding the resolution expectations of the sensor in the Sony ILC-a7 camera we tested it with. Slight edge softening could be seen in shots taken at the widest apertures. For many subjects, this feature is desirable as it leads the viewer’s eye towards the centre of the frame. Lateral chromatic aberration was consistently negilg8ible at all aperture settings as shown in the graph of our Imatest results, below. The red lien marks the border between ‘negligible’ and ‘low’ CA.

Here are the test graphs and here the image samples.

I forgot to mention that by using these links to preorder your At/A7r I will earn a small commission and you don’t have to pay a penny more for it! I deeply appreciate your support!!!
