Sony 90mm f2.8 Macro lens, initial thoughts

Sony 90mm f2.8 Macro lens, initial thoughts.

I have had the new Sony 90mm Macro lens for a few days now and have made a few test image and taken it on one assignment. On my most recent shoot for my financial services project (, I decided after my initial tests to leave home my Zeiss 85mm f1.4 A-mount lens and use the 90mm macro instead. This is one of the images from that session.


I have included a screen shot of the Lightroom processing, so you can see what I have done with the image, at this stage no retouching, so all you are seeing is what I have done in Lightroom to the image.

My Initial images where so unlike what I normally make but they give me a chance to test the lens out before using it properly for my work.


And the Lightroom conversion for your info.

I did a few others, but I am not going to share them with you at this stage. The lens makes really sharp images  and will penalise you the photographer for sloppy technique, with shallow depths of field. I like how the 90mm macro works for both close up work and portraits. I did use the focus limiting and I like how the focus limiting has been implemented, it lets you with the flick of a switch change from full focus range, to close only and to a portrait working distance to infinity,which I really appreciate aster lens does not go hunting for focus by being able to control the focus range. The lens is really simple to go from Auto focus to Manual with a ring at the front that just click forward or back depending on whether you want auto or manual focus. At this stage I can say that I am really going to like using this lens for my portraiture.
