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.”
