New Zeiss 16-35mm review at Techbang.

Share

The first review of the new 16-35mm FE Zeiss has been published at Techbang (google tranlsation here). While the automated google translation makes a bit of mess on the text it’s still good to check out the site to see the many full size image samples! And there is also that comparison with the Canon 16-35mm f/4.0 L lens (Click on image to enlarge):

These are the conclusions from the reviewer:
– He liked the compact size and material quality
– Image quality is very high
– Good distortion suppression
– Slow focusing speed on the A7
– Higher price compared to the Canon 16-35mm f/4.0 (but the Zeiss is better)

Zeiss FE 16-35mm preorder links:
Zeiss 16-35mm FE at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sony Store US.
Zeiss 16-35mm FE in Europe at Sony DE, UK, ES, IT, FR, CH, AT, NL, BE, FI, SE, NO, PT.

An unusual comparison: Zeiss Otus 85mm Vs. Sony RX100

Share

SAR reader Mike made that unusual comparison between the A7r with Otus lens and the first generation RX100 compact camera. And at the end the difference between the two are surprisingly small:

What I find astonishing is how little difference there is between the two, considering the vast difference in size, weight, sensors and price. Sure, the A7R/Otus combination wins, but not by that much. Besides, it bloody well better win! It’s up against a two-year-old pocket camera that weighs and costs a small fraction as much.
