Sharpness at 150mm

For this test, the Samyang AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE lens was attached to a Sony ZV-E1 body, which was in turn mounted to a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variance across the crops are due to change in natural light during the session.

Center sharpness is outstanding between f/2.8 and f/11. At f/16 sharpness drops off a little due to diffraction.

Edge sharpness is almost as good as in the centre, with the sharpest results between f/4 and f/11.
