Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS User Reviews

Telephoto macro prime lens | Sony FE | SEL90M28G

Else where, a user complained about the function of the manual-focus refinement function:  "Then it auto magnifies, as if this helps anything?" This auto-magnification is a CAMERA menu setting: MENU -> Cogwheel -> 1 -> MF Assist -> OFF to get rid of the annoying auto-magnification. This feature is useful doing still life with a tripod, not otherwise, and users should turn it off by default. (This menu item's usefulness seems, to me, not obvious from the title -- Auto-Mag would be preferable ...

Many said that this is an insane lens in terms of quality. DxO and other websites gave this lens a high rating score. I'm curious and decided to buy it when I got my hands on the A7II. Got the lens in HK, definitely not a cheap lens, more expensive than the Canon and Olympus counterpart I used. I went to a local bird market to try out this lens and then "BANG". Gotta praise the details I can get with this lens. The images look sharp, the contrast is great, IQ still looks good even for ...

Yesterday, I purchased the Sony 90mm FE lens with high hopes of fast focusing and great image quality.  Sadly today I returned it.

Theses two together with the Otus pair round out the top four lens they have tested. This 90mm is a large and heavy (relatively) ...

I am not spoilt by modern lenses since I usually use MF m-mount lenses, some new and some old. The Sony FE 90 mm was interesting to me because I lacked that length and wanted to have a stabilized lens since the A7R is very demanding. I do mainly portrait, fashion, performance. I tried this lens today at the studio and it felt wonderful. The switch between AF and MF is so easy and nice. The focus by wire is very responsive and good. I am not used to AF-lenses so the speed impressed me. Love it. ...
