It’s the first dedicated macro lens for Sony’s full- frame E-mount cameras, but just how good is the new Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS lens? Richard Sibley has a closer look.
Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS review – Image quality: Curvilinear distortion
Macro lenses should show little distortion, and the 90mm obliges. With very slight barrel distortion giving a Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture TV distortion measurement of just -0.5%, the lens is close to perfect. In real-world sample images this level of distortion isn’t visible, and it can be corrected in-camera or when editing if necessary.
