I believe that professional photographers or enthusiasts who like scenery creation like to use a wide-angle lens for shooting activities, because it has more visual impact, more sense of space, and wider field of vision. However, because the wide-angle lens requires particularly high manufacturing technology, if the manufacturer’s design level and production capacity are not in place, the pictures taken are prone to barrel distortion, which is often impossible for landscape photographers with very high image quality requirements. Accepted. So the question is, is there no wide-angle lens that can bring us super-high image quality while also having excellent distortion control? The answer is of course no. Today I will introduce to all landscape photographers a full-frame wide-angle zoom G master lens that allows you to enjoy beautiful scenery without fear of distortion-Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM.
Friends who have some knowledge of Sony’s lens group have probably heard of the name of the G master lens. As the flagship of the entire lens group, the G master lens has always conquered photography with its powerful image quality. Fans, especially the most discussed large ternary series, are often used as picture quality benchmarks, and the Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM is the famous wide-angle focal length large ternary lens.
Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM inherits the excellent resolution of Master G, and the optical design is excellent. It uses five aspherical lenses, including two XA (super aspherical) lenses, which can effectively eliminate aberrations. As a result, the images we captured have excellent resolution performance from the center to the edges. In addition, two ED (low-dispersion) lenses are also used to solve the problems of axial chromatic aberration and edge chromatic aberration that appear when the photo is enlarged. For large-aperture zoom lenses, chromatic aberration has always been a headache for every photographer. Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM has really freed us from the sea of suffering through its excellent optical design.
It can be seen that thanks to the excellent optical design and coating process, even in a backlight environment with a large light ratio as in the sample picture, there will be no disturbing glare and ghosting. For photographer friends who like to shoot large backlit movies, such a good quality lens is definitely a boon.
No matter what the subject is, I believe that you will like a lens with a large aperture, and the aperture of the G master lens will never disappoint. The Sony FE 16-35mm has a constant aperture of F2.8, which can create an extremely beautiful The out-of-focus blur effect, and the in-focus resolution can also be maintained at a very high level, which can be said to be the ultimate.
When the aperture is fully opened, the eyes of the model as the focal point still have considerable clarity, while the background behind the model has a creamy blur effect under a large aperture. Sony FE that combines the two 16-35mm F2.8 GM is definitely a great tool for shooting environment portraits.
Of course, when it comes to a large aperture, you cannot fail to mention the powerful focusing system of the Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM, which uses a floating focus design and a direct-drive ultrasonic motor design, which can achieve fast and accurate focusing. The sound of some lenses pulling the bellows, Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM is suitable for friends who like to take quiet pictures.
Because scenery shooting often requires walking around for a long time with the equipment behind, if the lens is too heavy, it will undoubtedly greatly increase the fatigue of the photographer. The Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM has an excellent lightweight design, compared with Other wide-angle zoom and large-aperture lenses have obvious advantages in portability, and their weight is only 680g, even if you carry it for a whole day, you will not feel tired. Coupled with a unique dust-proof and moisture-proof design, it can be taken even in a harsh environment. I believe many extreme landscape photographers know how important this design is.
In general, Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM is still an excellent work among G master lenses, whether it is excellent resolution, soft focus out of focus, quiet and fast focusing system, or lightweight, dust-proof and moisture-proof The craftsmanship design makes it stand out among the wide-angle zoom and large aperture lenses. Believe me, I will definitely be satisfied with the purchase of Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM.
