When buying a new lens, a common dilemma is whether to go for a native or a third-party lens. The third-party lenses are usually much cheaper, but how good are they? In this video, Jay P Morgan and Kenneth Merrill compare two standard E-mount zoom lenses for full frame Sony cameras: an $879 Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and a $2,198 Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM. How do they compare in terms of sharpness, image quality, and autofocus for both photo and video? Check out the video below for more details.
See how well the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master is built in this great teardown video
Seeing camera gear dismantled can be like watching a horror movie for some photographers. For me, it’s fascinating. It’s interesting seeing the tech that goes into the new generations of lenses. It’s also cool to see how manufacturers overcome certain design challenges.
This episode of Sgnl, sees the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master lens stripped down to its component parts. It’s not for the squeamish. So, if you like to see your lenses in one piece, look away now.
