For photographers working in fast-paced environments or after the convenience of a multi-purpose optic, zoom lenses are often a versatile option. Image quality on zooms has improved across many lenses, too, which in some cases come close to rivalling the performance of a prime.
As an 24-105mm equivalent, this model features a constant f/4 maximum aperture, four-stop optical stabilizer in a compact design boasting no fewer than four aspherical lens elements, a Zeiss badge, and a $1,000 price tag to match. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
Concluding our roundup of test results for the latest Sony FE-mount lenses, we take a look at the FE 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 OSS. A superzoom option that offers wide-angle through to long telephoto in a single lens, the FE 24-240mm is a versatile option for those occasions when changing lenses is going to be a pain. Good DxOMark scores are rare for superzooms, though, so let’s see how the Sony does.
We continue our optical analysis of Sony’s latest FE-mount lenses, this time examining the performance of the $1598 Sony Carl Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA. A professional-grade “fast” aperture wide-angle prime, the new lens is specifically designed for use on Sony A7 hybrid cameras. Including three aspherical lens elements and Zeiss T* coatings for enhanced image quality, let's hope for great results as we run though our industry standard tests.

And now with the NX1’s sensor measurements in and verified, let’s see what Samsung’s latest NX hybrid camera has to offer.
We’ve tested the image quality of the 24-Mpix Sony A6000 with over 23 zoom and prime lenses. Read on to find out which of those models perform best with Sony’s current top-of-the-line APS-C mirrorless model.
We’ve analyzed the image quality of the 20-Mpix Sony A5000 with over 20 zooms and primes. Read on to find out which of those models you should be using with Sony’s smallest and lightest mirrorless model.
At less than half the price of the marginally wider, slightly faster Zeiss 24-70mm f4, this in-house Sony model looks like a tempting alternative, but can it meet the demands of the high-resolution sensor in the A7R? Read on to find out.
As the lower pixel count of the two full-frame A series mirrorless models from the firm the Sony A7 has been somewhat overshadowed by its pricier sibling. But with a less demanding 24-Mpix sensor and on-chip phase detection AF, the A7 sounds promising for legacy glass as well as offering faster focusing with the existing E and new FE mount lenses. Read on to find out how this intriguing new model performs.
