Sony 11-16mm T3 PL and 18-252mm Sony F3 Lens Review

This is a lens review of the new Sony 11-16mm T3 PL zoom and Sony 18-252mm zoom lenses.

This was all done in 3 hours yesterday afternoon in Tokyo. I was lucky enough to get Sony Japan (through System 5) to lend me these lenses to test. I do not have any commercial arrangement with Sony or System 5 and nor do I receive any of these products for free. If I want them I have to buy them like everyone else.

I’m not normally in front of the camera so please excuse the rambling and mistakes that are made.

This is more of a review than a test. There are no charts, just me using the lenses for a few hours to get a general feel for them and to help me evaluate what I liked and didn’t like about them.

Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 Review

Matthew Duclos of Duclos Lenses has posted a review of the Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm F1.8 lens. Check it out here.

Chromatic aberrations are present but well controlled. You can see some obvious purple fringing in some of the samples where I intentionally over-exposed the background on a dimmer foreground object. The fringing is a bit more controlled at mid-range apertures but increase a bit more at the smallest apertures. Sharpness is very good in the center with almost no falloff out to the edges. Same goes for light falloff and distortion, all well controlled. There is a minor flare when shooting wide open at f/1.8.
