Focus Numérique says the new Sony 90mm FE is a pleasure for the eyes :)


Focus Numerique (translation here) tested the Sony FE 90mm lens. They said the lens is a pleasure for the eyes and its performance is very impressive!

Martin Vieten (translation here) reviewed the lens and you can see many image samples on his site. He writes that the lens is worth every penny and the lens convinces with an excellent image quality, especially in backlit situations. Resolution and bokeh leave little to be desired.

The 90mm lens will ship from July 7 at those stores:
In USA at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Sony Germany, Sony UK, Sony FR, Sony IT, Sony ES, Sony NL, Sony BE, Sony AT, Sony CH, Sony SE, Sony FI, Sony NO, Sony PT.
In Asia at Digitalrev, Sony Australia.
