Now, how sharp is the new FE 70-200 mm G lens? Here we go!
2 months ago

Yesterday I did some tests to find out if the FE 20-200 mm G lens is as sharp and crisp as my pirst impression suggested. I went to this beautiful bridge, got closer and took a series of pictures at f:4, f:5.6, f:8 and f:11 both for the center and extreme edge. These were processed as I normally would do with Lightroom: Here just adding lens profile and a slight amount of sharpening.

So how did the lens perform? Look for yourself in the 3 following posts, one at 70 mm focal length, one at 150 mm and one at 200 mm focal length. I think you should make your own conclutions, but I will not hessitate using this lens wide open!

Manual focus and manual exposure at ISO 100. All are 100% crops from raw files.

I used this beautiful bridge for my test photos, from a much closer position.

This is just a sample to show the placement of the tower for the extreme edge shots.
