Wide primes have a tendency to be very sharp in the center and softer on the edges—that’s not the case here. Sony promises sharp images across the frame and, based on our time with the lens, they were not kidding. The pictures that we shot during our time with this lens were sharp and contrasty—exactly what we were looking for. The lens does a nice job of controlling chromatic aberrations as well. The ugly green and purple fringing that can be difficult to remove in post-processing and is common in some wide primes.
