New Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens (SEL14F18GM) Review

The new Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM lens is now in stock at B&HPhoto, Amazon and Adorama. The US price is $1,598.

Optical Limits published its full review of the Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM. They say the lens  it is an exceptional lens within its category.

See the excerpt from the review below:

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM has its flaws but within its category, it is an exceptional lens. The center performance is breathtaking and the outer image field is pretty good as well even at f/1.8 – quite an achievement. Technically, it is never really “tack sharp” in the corners (in high megapixel images) but no extreme ultra-wide angle lens is. There is a bit of field curvature so it’s best to pull the focus a little in infinity depth-of-field scenes. Image distortion is low even in raw images. Unsurprisingly, the vignetting is quite extreme at f/1.8 so it’s best to leave the image auto-correction activated. This also takes care of the moderate CAs. Positive aspects also include the smooth bokeh – unusual for such a lens – and the way sun stars are rendered at smaller aperture settings. The flare resistance is also better than usual but, of course, present when pushing it.

The Sony lens offers a very high build quality in a compact, lightweight package. The lens body is made of some compound material but it feels solid and combined with the anti-dust- and moisture sealing, the lens should be good enough for professional abuse. The AF is super fast and silent. If you prefer setting the aperture on the lens you can do so with this lens. Video makers will also appreciate the clickless option for it.

If you are an ultra-wide fanatic, the Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM is your ticket. Due to its fast max aperture, it is also more versatile than more conventional prime lenses in this range. And it’s reasonably priced for what it is. Highly recommended!

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Lens Review: “phenomenal optics into a slim, carry-friendly package”

Here is an excellent review of the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Lens (B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama) for E-mount cameras.

This Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Lens Review comes from PcMag. They’ve tested the new lens and says the mark ii version offers “phenomenal optics into a slim, carry-friendly package”.

From their conclusion :

You can criticize Sony for replacing a lens it originally billed as future-proof, but the new FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II is a worthwhile upgrade. First and foremost, it’s easier to carry—Sony has come a long way with miniaturization since it tipped the GM system. This slim zoom joins svelte lenses like the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM II OSS, FE 50mm F1.2 GM, and FE 24mm F1.4 GM, all of which made us rethink how hefty well-corrected, bright aperture lenses should be. The redesign also adds useful on-lens controls for photo and video, something missing from Sony’s first take.

Internally, there’s a fresh optical formula that performs a bit better than the original on Sony’s most demanding camera sensor, the 60MP chip in the a7R IV. Furthermore, dual linear motors make focus performance a bit snappier, and picture quality is a little better than with the older lens. Aside from a bit of focus breathing, we don’t have many criticisms about the optics.

Despite excellent optics, the original FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM didn’t quite earn our Editors’ Choice award when we reviewed it, and it’s now a bit behind the times in terms of controls and design. You can still buy it for around $2,000, but we recommend you spend more to get the GM II—it’s a standout lens, and an Editors’ Choice winner.
