Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM Reviews
Kurtmunger reviews the Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM and writes;
“I’m impressed with the new Sony 28-75mm F/2.8 lens. It’s sharp in the centers at F/2.8 at the wide end, and the corners sharpen up reasonably at F/5.6. The long end is a little soft in the centers at F/2.8, but sharpens up at F/4, the corners look decent, but not great at F/8-11.”

So far so good | Rating:
“I am a very amateur photographer. Very avid reader and shooter. Have a small personal studio. Been hooked on Sony, will probably continue to purchase every new Sony product. Love the user interface, very consistent on upgrades. I have an HX1 that I used on a trip to Egypt – awesome panoramas, great quality in high light situations. Also have an A350 with wide angle, 50mm 2.8, mid and long 2.8 teles. Always trying to improve composition and quality. Having used the stock lens on a Sony A350 and being very frustrated in low light, this lens has been a joy to use. 800/1600 ISO crops really well. AF is fast. Still wondering if this lens is worth $300 more than the Tamron 28-75 2.8. But it is a Sony. “ – by BigDog Shooter
