next PZ lens test review: Sony E 18-105mm f/4 G OSS
#11
  Are we giving it too much credit?  The lowly kit  Nikor 18-105mm VR lens beats it hands down.....

 

       and it's for peanuts!

Well, the test was done on 24mp ... where the Nikkor was tested on 16mp.

 

I just finished the next Canon lab tests and the difference between 21mp and 50mp is ... well ... obvious.

We have several lenses in this range the Nikon 18-105, Canon 18-135 and its three  variants and Sony.

My wild  guess from what I have seen on the build quality side it's Sony-Nikon-Canon, however optically speaking it is Canon -Nikon- Sony of course we are speaking about the STM or USM variants of the Canon lens.

Am I right ?

I also do landscape with very long lenses. Actually, the only limit to me is atmospheric blur. 300/400mm in APS-C mode are generally fine, something longer can work depending on the subject distance and blur.

 

PS I think email notifications are out of order again?

Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2

@ toni-a  ..... i can confirm

 

The first thing I did after reading.  I took my Canon 18-135 3.5-5.6 IS (first version) ... bought seven years ago with my first DSLR Kit Canon D550 from the shelf.  Put a cheap EOS-NEX adapter on NEX-6 .... and tested. 

 

Works fine, fine fine. Manual focussing nails shots precisely. IS works,  EXIFs were saved correctly. Lightroom finds lens profile. Image IQ ..... I would not expect too much buying this Sony E 18-105 F4 G OSS (except AF);

 

Klaus, thanks you for this review!

Can I quickly ask, on behalf of someone else who is having issues posting, are the sharpness results for this lens with or without corrections applied?

Thanks
#17
Without. Please note that distortion correction TENDS to decrease the MTFs.

CA correction has a limited, positive influence beyond 3px.
