Sharpness at 15mm

For this test, the Sony E 15mm F1.4 G lens was attached to a Sony ZV-E10 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.

The centre is a little soft when shooting wide open at f/1.4, with peak performance achieved in the f/2-f/11 range. Diffraction sets in at f/16.

The edges are not as sharp as the centre, with f/2.8 to f/11 the optimum settings.
