Added some extra sharpness to the Dynafit part of the this pic in PS with the High Pass filter function. it was taken at 1/60 so i got some blur.

Sharpend in LR and removed some CA from the bike spokes.

All pics above, Sony A7r + Sony Fe 28mm f2 @f2

Got some new found love for the Fe 28mm. I understood right away that it was a good lens, but after that it sort of fell in to the dark. 28 is not narrow like the 35 im used to, and its not wide like a 24. So it always felt wrong in my spine when i framed a shot and i didn´t get it right from the start.

But now, when its starting to settle, i realize this is an amazing lens.

200g or something ?(light as f…)

Sharp (as…)

Small

Fast af (Its got af! 🙂 im used to mf)

Even bokeh is nice!

This is a nifty 28! 🙂 Not quite pocketable but not far away either. Compared to the Nokton 17.5mm for m yEm5 i had befor i got the Sony A7r, the 28mm beats it on all levels. Its sharper, rather much sharper actually, so even though this is an f2 and its wider then the Nokton (35mm equvalent) and the Nokton would be an f1.9 in FF terms. The Fe28 feels like it gives more pop.

With the Mft system and the Noktons i always added some Highpass in PS when i was sharpening, even without highpass in the Fe28 shots you have more pop and sharpness. Editing can get you along way but the lack of detail, well, thats a fact. Kind of hard to get around.

CA is pretty apparent on the 28mm aswell, both green and purple, the difference is not that much better then the Nokton but, its clearly better.

And you get all this, at less then half the weight, half the price, in a smaller package, with AF, on a FF body, with less effort (both in post, and physically)

 

I rest my case 🙂

 

Laters.
