16-50 2.8 Closeups
I've been using my new A77ii with its 'kit' 16-50 2.8 for less than a month. I got a Fotodiox adapter so I could use my non-D Nikkor AF lenses, including a 105 2.8 macro which has served me well over the years. One pleasing aspect of the Sony 16-50 I've found is its closeup capabilities. I haven't felt the need to even try the Nikkor yet, because with a slight amount of cropping, I'm getting satisfactory closeups with the 16-50 Sony. Couple of examples attached.
