Sony Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Hands On Review


Richard Sibley from the U.K. website amateurphotographer had a chance to look at the new Sony Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA announced last week and came back with some pretty positive things to say.

Until recently the Sony A7 line of cameras suffered from a very small selection of AF lenses. This is a shame as these cameras have brought the Sony mirrorless line to a completely new place in terms of image quality – competing head to head with the best DSLRs on the market.
