Lens reviews update: DxOMark data for Sony NEX primes
DxOMark has been busy testing lenses for the Sony NEX system, and has just published an article detailing which lenses score best on the NEX-7. As part of our ongoing collaboration, we've added the test data for most of Sony's own E-mount primes to our lens widget, which you can use to assess their performance and compare them against each other. We'll be adding Sony's zoom lenses and third-party primes very soon, but for now you can explore the test data for the Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZA, E 20mm F2.8, E 30mm F3.5 Macro, E 35mm F1.8 OSS and E 50mm F1.8 OSS. Click the links below to find out more.
The Sony E 16mm F2.8 isn't on this list, but we looked at it back in 2010 as part of our review of the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5. Click here to read our assessment of the Sony E 16mm F2.8, including data in our original lens widget.
Our unique lens data widget allows you to assess and compare lenses' sharpness, chromatic aberration, vignetting and distortion at a range of settings. It also displays the measured focal length and T-stop. Click here to read about how to use our lens data widget.
