The new released Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens now in stock and shipping at Amazon/ B&H Photo/Adorama/Amazon UK/Amazon DE. Here are two in-depth reviews of this lens from Imaging-Resource and Colby Brown. Imaging-Resource said that FE 16-35mm f/2.8 will deliver top-notch results for pros and serious amateurs alike, and Colby Brown said that “I think it is safe to say that Sony really knocked it out of the park with this lens”.
Field test from Imagine-Resource:
It’s sturdy, super efficient to use, and produces fantastic images in all kinds of situations. If I owned one, I would be prepared to do some distortion correction and some vignetting compensation in some images. But otherwise, there just is nothing lacking in the pictures this lens makes. In almost any practical situation I can think of, the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 will deliver top-notch results for pros and serious amateurs alike. That makes it a great — and very important — addition to Sony’s mirrorless lens lineup.
Review from Colby Brown:
After using the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 GM this summer in Iceland and finally getting my own copy just before I published this review, I think it is safe to say that Sony knocked it out of the park with this lens. In a relatively small light body, they managed to pack in a ton of optical quality into this lens. Not only it is incredibly sharp corner to corner, but the images that come out of this lens are simply gorgeous. Between the bokeh, contrast and texture detail…there is a lot to love.
