Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM Review

September 20, 2018 | Mark Goldstein |

Sharpness at 24mm

For this test, the Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM lens was attached to a Sony A7R III body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session.

Centre sharpness remains high through from f/1.4 to f/11, with f/16 being adversely affected by diffraction. The edges are almost as sharp as the centre, with f/2-f/11 producing the sharpest results.
