Last month’s launch of six new FE mount lenses is great news for Sony enthusiasts shooting with A7 cameras. With only a modest number of FE lenses available until now, the new lenses — including two wide-angle primes, two ultra-wide angle converters, a close-focus macro and versatile superzoom — open up more possibilities on Sony full-frame hybrids. They’ve kept us busy in the lab, too, and the scores are in and verified for the FE 28mm F2.
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.
Utilising a 16Mp APS-C sensor, the Leica T is the first mirrorless hybrid option from the renowned German camera manufacturer.

Read onto find out which of these models perform best when paired with the new camera.
The Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35mm f2.8 is a compact moderate wide-angle lens designed for the full-frame mirrorless Sony Alpha A7 and A7R. But with only a moderate-speed f2.8 maximum aperture and an $800 price tag, optical performance has to be first rate. Read on to find out if that’s the case.
