DxOMark has just tested the new Sony FE 28mm f/2 lens (Amazon | B&H | Adorama), according to the DxOMark result, this is a very good and cheap wide-angle prime lens for Sony a7 series mirrorless cameras. See test result below:
Sony FE 28mm F2 vs Carl Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA vs Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm F2.8 ZA
It seems Sony FE 28mm f/2 lens is an affordable lens for great image quality, DxOMark hasn’t yet tested the new Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 lens, which is another great wide-angle prime lens.
When tested on Sony a5000, this lens is one point below Sony E 35mm f/1.8 and Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN
Ranking third for all hybrid lenses, just behind two significantly more expensive Carl Zeiss options, is a great result for the Sony FE 28mm F2 lens. At a cost of just $498, and boasting a “fast” F2 aperture and solid results in most categories, it’s an affordable wide-angle solution for Sony A7 series shooters. It’s actually marginally ahead of the Zeiss wide-angle competition overall for sharpness, but isn’t quite as strong at F2.8, where the corners drop off a little. The main area of concern is Distortion, however, with quite heavy “barrelling” that landscape and architecture photographers will want to correct in post-production.
