16-50mm Sony kit lens vs Sigma 30mm
6 months ago

Ok, just a quick one here. Here's some stats - the 16-50mm and the 30mm. I know that at 16mm the Sony is kinda at its worst so I'm wondering are the two lenses close IQ competitors when it comes to 30mm at f/8. MTF-wise it seems like the Sony isn't lagging behind the Sigma too much (obviously a little bit at the extreme) but since I'm kinda new to the mirrorless market I'm wondering if there's something else I should be having in mind that the stats are not telling me? I know that the Sony has some distortion and vignetting (mostly at 16mm, not that much at 30+ mm) but there's always the post-processing for that purpose. Image comparison at 30mm anyone? Just kidding, an honest opinion will do.
