Today, DXOMark has released their findings and tests with the new Sony 90mm Macro f2.8 G OSS lens for Sony FE mount cameras. Of all the ratings on the site, this lens is one of the company’s sharpest and is only behind the Sony 55mm f1.8. Tested on the Sony A7r, this rating places it even ahead of the Sigma 35mm f1.4. In fact, the top 10 list is dominated by Sony and Zeiss with a bit of Sigma and Nikon slipping in there.
So what does this mean? Creatively speaking, nothing really because of just how great modern software is these days and that creativity doesn’t really rely on gear.
However, it should do more than enough to hush the complaints of those that say that Sony’s FE system doesn’t have a lot of lenses for their system. Both Sony and Zeiss have made lots of offerings for the still growing system. We’ve got lots of primes, lots of zooms, and many essential focal lengths.
