The FE 28mm f/2, the smallest of Sony’s latest round of FE lenses, is well worth considering, as Andy Westlake finds out
Our Applied Imaging tests reveal the 28mm to behave much as we’d expect for a fast prime. It’s pretty sharp in the centre of the frame wide open, but the edges lag behind. Peak central sharpness is achieved at f/4, with best overall sharpness around f/8-f/11. At smaller apertures the image softens due to diffraction.
