The Zuiko 28mm F2.8 and 24mm F2.8 also show promise with testing indoors, but I must do field work with them to say more. Since one of the A7R’s great attractions is its possible use as a superb full-format quality digital back for many of the great lenses you have once used and have held on to, fast and accurate manual focusing is an obvious necessity.

I had my A7R modified and it worked wonders -- no more edge smearing for adapted WA lenses. Nevertheless, they are pretty usable if you give the files some love in postprocessing (removal of CA’s and sharpening). With adapter about the same length as Batis 18mm but a little thinner and a bit heavier. Although I have to agree if you are looking for a prime with exactly 18mm it is probably the next best option to the Batis (and Milvus, and old ZF/ZE). One push gets you a 7x magnification, and another one double that. But the beauty of it is that it’s outstandingly good across the field at every aperture, and is extremely light so easy to take along on trips. My priorities have certainly changed in recent years. Canon EF-S 10-18/4.5-5.6, usable 14-18mm with an apparently easy modification to the back of the lens so it fits into an MC-11. It should perform even better with the Kolari “thin filter” mod, for better corner performance, plus their new anti reflection coating, making “hot spots” and other infrared flare issues, far less of a problem. I experienced less success with my 21mm Super-Angulon, however - lots of … You can use any of our affiliate links (in our FE guide there should be plenty) if you make any purchase, it will still work even if the link is for another article.

Pentax. Thank you guys so much for this great write up. The main reason I included this lens here: the flare resistance at the wide end is just stellar. Sharp and with pleasant contrast. Lenses that were geared for use with older film camera (35mm or medium/large format) systems are called legacy lenses. For some reason, the Minolta MD 20mm 2.8 performed very badly when compared to Canon 20mm FD 2.8 by P. Reeve. Excellent sharpness in the center from wide open at any focal length. Class leading across the frame sharpness by f/5.6. Status: used by Bastian in the past on Nikon DSLRs. I have a dilema and was hoping you can help The price is significant but justified. Also has moustache distortion and I don’t know how well the flare resistance will work indoors with strong light sources. The team, that are four gearheads: Bastian, Jannik and Phillip from Germany as well as David from Australia. One thing which often escape scrutiny is there are 2 versions of the Minolta MD 17mm f 4. There is no way to use it on a Canon without irrepably damagin the camera. Mostly due to price, size and weight issues, yes. I will consider that for the next update. If you intend to shoot directly into the sun when using filters also don’t buy the Tokina 17mm 3.5 because it is very prone to flare. I come from Nikon world with many modern lenses and also some of the best AI-S/AI series lenses. With the 2/15 on the A7s compared to the 2.8/11-16 on the D5200 you will gain several stops.

Haven’t tried it, have no opinion, sorry! Contrast is always high. (I’m using it on an Infrared converted A7). Thank for the feedback and the heads up, corrected! I like also the Voigtlander 5.6/12 M39. Macro – I have 3 Nikon macro lenses with aperture ring (55mm f/2.8 AIS, AF 60mm f/2.8D and AF 105mm f/2.8D). But in most cases we have bought the lenses new from retail stores or on on the used market.Â. In case I get a review sample I will of course compare it to the 10mm 5.6. From f/8 onwards across frame sharpness was very good on the A7rII. It should be released in september as far as I know. Almost no distortion, ok to good flare resistance, ok vignetting, great minimum focus distance. Already sharp across frame at f/2.0 without relevant field curvature. Any news on when Voigtlander will release the e-mount f5.6/12? Second widest rectilinear lens there is in a small package. He uses it regularly. Another jewel in the A7’s crown is the ability to mount almost any lens, which (unfortunately) has increased the demand for manual-focus lenses … I started with a Panasonic 47MP S1R body and chose the Sigma 14-24/2.8 Art (native-L-mount).. Plus some testing of the lenses I’ve tried, in this thread on Fred Miranda Alt. My questions are – At f/5.6 the center is sharp but corners and also midframe region suffer from huge field curvature because of the thick filter stack in front of the A7-series’ sensors. Corners are ok, coma correction is pretty decent. “Vignetting at 12 mm is …” Back when I was a poor student price/performance was super important. thank you very much 🙂 This is one of the rare cases where a zoom outperforms many primes. The contrast improves when stopping down to f/4.0. Above average size with very good build quality. Thank you very much Bastian, you’ve helped me a lot. Bought and sold by David after quite a lot of use. But still 150 and therefore it cannot cheap. 520g | $849 | full Review | aperture series | sample images, buy from manufacturer | | B&H | (affiliate links). Dear Karsten, Yeah, it would be interesting to hear if any of you swapped the Sony16-35 f4 for the Tamron 17-28. At 18mm it is almost impossible to catch flares or ghosts and it even takes 77mm screw-in or 100mm square filters and is also comparably cheap. If you disagree with us that is fine. Both lenses need lots of software correction for distortion though. I tried the following lenses and some of them amazed me: The following is a guest post from Phillip Reeve. I wanted to download your LR profile, but the link is dead? In this summary we also included some adapted lenses we think are worth mentioning. You have to use f/11 for the corners to look best. Quite curious why you haven’t given the 16-35/2.8 GM a full review yet. The best, but also most expensive, choice among the zoom lenses for the Alpha 7 series is the 24-70 mm G Master lens with an aperture of f/2.8. I have a question though…. Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon T* The Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 feels nothing like the Sony 35mm f/2.8. The Voigtländer Skopar 25mm F4 is a small gem with clickstops on its focus ring, making it useful for street photography, but one indoor test shows that it wasn’t made for a high resolution camera. How much of difference will the 5.6 stop of 10mm be a hindrance compared to the 4 of 15mm in the verstality of the lenses to take good images UWA lenses developed very fast during the last decades. Among the longer ones the 100mm F2.8 Macro (with an exact copy in the Sony lens lineup) appears to be made for the 36MP sensor. I bought one and tested for a couple of days, then returned it because I didn’t like the cheap plastic feel and looks of the lens. Canon FD 4/17 But since I’m no expert on manual lenses I currently still stick to the more affordable ones. Although, I don’t have most of these lenses you’ve mentioned I tried some lenses and I think you should make your reviews on them.

Very very small and very lightweight, decently priced on the used market. I guess holder, combined CPL+ND will cost around 300Euros or more. The performance of the Biogon 28mm F2.8, the least strong of the set, was surprisingly good. Don’t lay your hands on the older AF-D version, it is not even nearly as good! When focusing at the center of the frame you need f/11 to f/16 for best across frame sharpness and the corners are still merely okay. -, User-Guide to wide-angle lenses for Sony a7 a7ii a7rii -, Review: Samyang 14mm 2.8 MF DSLR on Sony A7 cameras,, Sony FE lenses: A comprehensive and independent guide, Guide to Macro Lenses for the Sony a7 series, Beginner’s Guide to Manual Lenses on the Sony a7, Guide to Adapters for Manual Lenses on the Sony a7 series, The Guide to Canon FD lenses on the Sony a7 series, The rated List of Minolta MD/MC Lenses on the Sony a7, super compact and the widest rectilinear lens available, contrast and resolution are surprisingly good from wide open, flare resistance slightly worse than the wide Voigtlander primes, very nice sunstars thanks to 5 straight aperture blades, complex distortion and high vignetting (profile for LR available), Widest rectilinear lens available in a very compact package and with surprisingly good image quality, super compact (similar in size to Zeiss Loxia 21mm 2.8) and even slightly wider than the 10mm Voigtlander, contrast and resolution are never great, needs stopping down to f/8 to f/11 for okay corner sharpness, flare resistance worse than the wide Voigtlander primes, very nice sunstars thanks to 5 straight aperture blades, complex distortion and high vignetting, hard to correct because of missing electronic contacs, Widest rectilinear (zoom) lens available in a very compact package, but takes some work in post for good results. An UWA lens almost without real flaws. i cant wait to see your reviews on the latest voigtlander lens Could you tell me which one will work best in my Sony A7R? I already think about the filter, samyang 14mm have samyang special filter holder for the lens, you can ebay it and also they use 165 filter systems. Haida has announced a so far unique round filter system for this Sigma zoom. Already at f/2.8 the sharpness across frame near infinity can be very good but mind a little field curvature. Contrast, flare resistance and wide open performance are not up to modern standards but at typical landscape settings, this lens delivers. If you were to include Loxia 21mm in the list, would someone choose it? I have not been able to find any direct image comparisons of Zeiss Milvus or classic lenses on E-mount vs native CaNikon, would be an interesting topic I think. The first on our list of the best lenses for Sony A7 is the Sony SELF28F20 FE 28mm f/2-22 Standard-Prime Lens. On its first day with me it changed my choice of Auto ISO into 50 ISO three times without my consent only because my hand brushed against it. Doing so dramatically improved performance (both copies became comparable). huge color-cast/vignetting and okish sharpness from f8, fully consistent with internet report), but then I’ve acquired another copy with A7RII and it was *much* *much* better than mine. I would be prepared to reach deeper in my pocket for the 15mm distagon if image quality remains more or less intact with adapters. I’m hearing good things about the Canon. Best wishes. I have both, a A7II and a NEX6, a 10mm Voigtländer and a 10-18mm APSC lens. I was wondering if any of the Zeiss Distagon 15mm f/2.8 versions – classic or Milvus – was considered as a viable adapted manual focus ultra wide lens, or if price, size & weight – or image quality – ruled it out as a candidate? I’m not a pro and it would be hard for me to justify that level of purchase. I haven’t had time yet to compare the Planar 35mm F2 with the lens made for the A7R, but I do not expect any disappointment. Thank you for your comment! The 18 is not too wide for general wide use. and I am considering 2 options for wide lenses: Keep my Tokina 11-16 (usable 15-16 in FF) using an adaptor. A very sharp lens for a very attractive price. The Minolta 24mm F2.8 also works beautifully on the Sony. Status: sample loaned by manufacturer reviewed by Bastian. The M39 12mm 5.6 is not a very good idea on the A7r, the Sensor is least suited to rangefinder wide angle lenses. Quite big but very lightweight and also very expensive. At 24mm not nearly as good compared to 14mm, needs to be stopped down to f/8.0 for best performance here. If you purchase the lens through one of thee affiliate-links in this article we get a small compensation with no additional cost to you.Â, Status: Sample loaned by the manufacturer reviewed by Bastian who replaced his Voigtlander 10mm 5.6 with this lens, 373g + adapter | $799 | full Review | aperture series | sample images, buy from manufacturer’s homepage | B&H | | (affiliate links), Status: Sample loaned by the manufacturer reviewed by Bastian, 499g | $849 | full Review | aperture series | sample images, buy from manfucaturer’s homepage | B&H | (affiliate links). Can anybody give information about manual focus? The build quality of my sample is very nice. Even if there's some overlap with other lists. I’m in the market for a replacement of my older voigtlander but may also be considering a fisheye lens as that could work with the jobs I mostly undertake. Kind regards I keep seeing m-mount versions used for a much lower price. The Canon FD 24mm F2.8 has already shown its worth. Aside from the new FE lens range co-announced with the A7 and A7R, there’s the promise of an adaptor fest: vintage, legacy, loved lenses of almost any marque can be dusted off and mounted on either of the slimline siblings. what an awesome review, thank you so much for taking the time to educate us. One of two Kipon adapters that I tried could be rated as second to the Metabones. You also need the filter adapter for the 12mm 5.6 M39 (which is quite rare), so you might want to settle for one of the others. I was just wondering if anybody here used an apsc fisheye on fullframe and how were the results. At f/3.5 the center is quite good, midframe and corners are ok, also quite contrasty. Would you be interested in testing the Sigma 14-24 2.8 DN with the Haida rear ND filter set ? 🙂. me bad just realized that you did answer my question. Below, I’ll be posting some examples that I’ve taken with my lenses and some tips and tricks for you to get started. But one thing you cannot customize is the monitor or viewfinder selection. It is not as compact as you might want though. There is no reason not to use the M-mount version on a helicoid adapter and if you can live without EXIF information the M-mount version is a good choice.

My picks based on usage on the A7r for the $$ would be Konica 50/1.7 (probably the sharpest lens I have used), Pentax 50/1.8 K … What are Legacy Lenses? Bastian. I would be interested in a review of the Sigma 14-24 f2.8 e-mount or the 12-24 f4 ef mount with MC11. Can you suggest how to use Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar 15mm f/4.5 Aspherical on Canon body. Very small and lightweight, decently priced. The Sigma was on par with the Sony at shared apertures and pulled even off a bit in the extreme corners stopped down. 3. Still considering buying a cheap electronic-less adapter to give I’m new to this website, that I must admit I didn’t know: so, please, accept my compliments for your excellent in-depth reviews. And if so, do you have any information where to buy the mount? At longer focal lengths vignetting is still significant. Will stick with my ‘wavy’ Samyang 14mm until the perfect superwide comes along – yeah, right! Considering there is the great Laowa 15mm 2.0 for Sony FE I would not bother with the huge Sigma 14mm 1.8. (iOS and Android, through new tab and in eBay-App). He lived in Turkey, India and SouthEast Asia before arriving in Japan two years later. Here the customizing possibilities fall short as well. Have you had any experience of the ultra-wide angle lens SIGMA 14mm, F/1.8 DG HSM Art for Sony E? The 2nd one I own is way better than the Tokina 17mm 3.5 (I own the vivitar version) and really excellent. I like your reviews on lenses, and I really want to get Voigtlander 21mm but the problem is I would like to use Lee filters with this lens, the problem is with lens hood, is there any way I can use Lee filters with this lens Out of the two zoom lens options for your Sony Alpha a7 series camera, my recommendation is the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent. Thanks guys, for the enthusiastic, dedicated articles you write. f/2.8 is fine, corners need f/11. My 20mm shows the same problems as in Phillip’s test. As one terribly anal and miserly photog, I would love to spend some serious money on a superwide but can’t choose from this dizzying selection of glass. Great article guys! The Konica Minolta 17-35 2,8 would make more sense IMO since it’s FF glass. We also have a guide to 21-35mm lenses as well as a guide to 35mm lenses, 50mm lenses and portrait lenses. And for quite a few people, that means M lenses. I remember when it made its appearance to complete the lenses set for the Contax G. The Japanese photographic press was lyrical about the undistorted field of vision it brought to 35mm photography. Minolta’s best is best all-round, with the M-Rokkor 40mm F2 made for the CL and CLE rangefinder cameras as a good example. If I was to get the m mount version I could use it with a close-focus adapter (there are many cheaper third party adapters now). Any of the M42 lenses. Almost no distortion, decent flare resistance, very nice 10-stroke sunstars, but very high vignetting even stopped down. Thanks guys for this much appreciated article. Luckily the Laowa 9mm 5.6 now offers the combination of image quality and size that I was looking for. 24mm is a great wide-angle field of view, and 70mm is perfect for portraits – don’t forget you can also take advantage of ‘crop mode’ available on all the Sony Alpha cameras, allowing you to get another 1.5x reach. And ever since the 21mm has been a kind of Holy Grail for me. Good from f/1.8, great across the whole frame stopped down to f/5.6, GM-like build (declickable aperture ring, focus hold button, AF/MF switch). Decent sharpness at f/1.8, much better from f/2.8, High coma, so not a good choice for astrophotography at wider apertures, High vignetting, mediocre flare resistance, Excellent center and good across the frame sharpness from f/2. 35Mm or medium/large format ) systems are called legacy lenses shows clearly when they are usable...
