Sony FE Lens Size Comparison

©2016 CRAIG LITTEN

The Lineup

Sony FE 70-200 f4 G  •  Zeiss FE 35mm f1.4  •  Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8  •  Zeiss Batis 25mm f2  •  Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8  •  Zeiss FE 35mm f2.8

 

The purpose of this post is to simply give an overall size comparison between six of the most common Sony and Zeiss FE lenses. Note that the last four lenses do not have native lens hoods on them, but smaller metal hoods that I supplemented for a much better fit into my camera bags, plus they are more compact while shooting. The alternate hoods protect just as well, in my opinion, but are not as deep so they may not be as good for protection against lens flair. Personally, I've never been bothered by flair, in fact I kind of like it, and it's a rare occurrence anyway because the Zeiss coatings are so good.

Beware of Sea Monster

This is Only a Test

I was out and about today around Jupiter testing the Sony G FE 70-200 f/4 lens on my Sony a6000 and Sony a7s. I shot with both cameras at all focal lengths and distances, and believe it or not, in color (as you can see above).

By the way, I was really impressed with the out-of-camera jpegs and the amazingly rich color and depth from both cameras' sensors--even during the harshest and brightest part of the day when the sun was still high in the sky. In the months since I've purchased the cameras, I've mostly shot in B&W so I really haven't seem a lot of color from them. Conclusion: Fantastic!

As for the lens, I love it. It's from LensRentals.com, and they so graciously sent me a free copy because my original copy (back in May) was defective (in my opinion), or just a really bad copy. At certain focal lengths it performed well, but then...horribly. But this copy, which they hand picked for me, has thus far performed flawlessly. So much so that I just may have to keep it--once I give them my credit card info that is ;-)
