Imaging-Resource Tests The Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM

In his review of the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master lens for ImagingResource.com, Eamon Hickey performs a field test using the lens on an α7R II and capturing a wide variety of images. From landscapes, architecture and interiors to general street and travel photos, the lens did not disappoint.

"My experience with using the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM across all those different days and situations was uniformly excellent -- never a glitch or any unpleasant surprise of any kind."

He takes a look at the build quality and handling of the lens and then moves onto its use, testing things like sharpness, contrast and bokeh. At the conclusion of his testing, Hickey notes how impressed he is with the delivered results, "In almost any practical situation I can think of, the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 will deliver top-notch results for pros and serious amateurs alike. That makes it a great – and very important – addition to Sony's mirrorless lens lineup."

"My overall opinion of the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens is easy to sum up: what's not to like? It's sturdy, super efficient to use, and produces fantastic images in all kinds of situations."
