  • Sony E 16mm f/2.8 (NEX) Lens Review
    the rangefinder crowd The build quality of the lens is identical to all Sony E lenses lightweight aluminium alloy barrel plastic focusing ring and plastic filter thread ring The optical formula consists of 5 elements in 5 groups with 1 aspherical surface The weight is a meager 70g 2 5oz The minimum focusing distance is 24cm 9 4in The aperture is fully electronic and is set from the camera Min supported aperture is f 22 The lens accepts 49mm screw in filters The lens is designed to work only with APS C type Sony NEX system where it gives an EFOV of 24mm The manufacturer s box includes Sony E 16 2 8 lens front and rear caps manual registration card Within the scope of this review the lens was tested on 16Mp NEX 5n camera Summary Lens Composition 5 elements in 5 groups Angular Field 84 degrees Minimum Focus 24cm 9 4in Focusing Action AF MF f stop Scale f 2 8 f 22 electronic Filter Size 49mm Lens Hood Plastic ALC SH112 optional Weight 70g 2 5oz Dimensions 22 5x62mm 0 9x2 5 Lens Case N A Retail Price 249 2012 Depreciation 50 2012 Handling Sony E 16 2 8 is one of the smaller pancake lenses currently being manufactured Not a lot of lens designers fancy pancake format these days at least for rectilinear designs due to the optical constraints such small formats typically impose I think only Pentax still manufactures a number of pancake lenses that are equally or maybe slightly smaller than E 16 2 8 But Sony E 16 2 8 is an AF lens with the electronic motor inside the lens That must take some additional space and so miniaturization of this lens probably was no easy task It probably also explains why

  • Sony E 30mm f/3.5 Macro (NEX) Lens Review
    build quality the lens looks quite shiny and pretty with the barrel made of some kind of lightweight aluminium alloy The mount is metal while the focusing ring and filter thread are plastic There are no controls on the barrel and thanks to the use of lightweight materials the lens weighs a meager 138g 4 8oz The lens is pretty compact measuring 82x55mm 2 5x2 25in As a dedicated macro E 30 3 5 offers a 1 1 magnification at the minimum focusing distance of 9 5cm 3 84in The optical construction consists of 7 elements in 6 groups with 1 ED and 3 aspherical elements The min aperture is f 22 and is electronically controlled from the camera The lens accepts screw in type 49mm filters The lens can be used only on Sony NEX cameras where it gives an EFOV of 45mm The manufacturer s box includes the lens front rear caps plastic ALC SH113 lens hood and manual registration card Summary Lens Composition 7 elements in 6 groups Angular Field 60 degrees Minimum Focus 9 5cm 3 84in Focusing Action AF MF f stop Scale f 3 5 f 22 electronic Filter Size 49mm Lens Hood Plastic ALC SH113 included Weight 138g 4 8oz Dimensions 82x55mm 2 5x2 25 Lens Case N A Retail Price 249 2012 Depreciation 50 2012 Handling All Sony E lenses are built to target entry level SLR mirrorless consumers As such they trade off a number of features that we re accustomed to have on regular SLR lenses The lack of the distance window is the one that is sorely missed here Granted this might not be a major issue for most users but the fact that it makes me guessing the distance to the subject is driving me nuts Particularly when I am trying to focus at MFD Where the heck is that MFD How much closer can I get Is the lens not focusing because I m too close or is it because the lens is hunting Perhaps Sony plans to introduce a distance meter in the camera s firmware at some later point easily doable since all the data is already being transferred from the lens anyway but in the meantime the lack of this feature brings some level of annoyance The build quality of the lens is decent but not as good as with high end lenses from Zeiss and Leica or even Voigtlander expected given the price point for Sony s lenses The silver finish looks very nice and the knurled focusing ring is fairly comfortable to grip but all that did not help much the day I cracked my 30 3 5 I was strolling in downtown San Jose with the Nex 5N and 30 3 5 Macro over my shoulder when I noticed a couple of friends crossing the street I turned quickly trying to catch their attention and my camera strap swung off my shoulder bumping against the guard rail of the cross walk
