Sony/Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 Sonnar samples

I’m busy packing for a holiday trip but wanted to post some samples shot with the Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 Zeiss on the A7R. I just received the lens this past Thursday so my time spent with it is very limited. I’m going to have a lot more images from this as well as the other shipping FE lens (the 35mm f2.8) when I return.

My initial impression of the lens is very positive. It’s one of the sharpest lenses I have used wide open, and is worth every penny. Build quality is great and despite it’s apparent size balances very well with the camera. It’s very cold here in Canada and the following few images were shot this Sunday between some last minute pre departure shopping.

Also, check out some of my observations on the Sony A7R itself: http://blog.dominik.ca/2013/12/09/sony_a7r/
