First Look Pics from the Sony Carl Zeiss 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM


[Update: 8:30pm] Finally have time to take some more daytime shots, well afternoon shots to be exact, again of the Victoria Harbour. The distortions on the edge of the frame does not look too shabby at all, what do you think?

Got the lens last night and hopped right out to the harbour side to take a test shot of the Victoria Harbour. The above pic was shot in RAW, straight out, no post-processing. Will try to shoot some daytime landscape pics today. Below I attached some closeups of the lens together with the other Carl Zeiss lenses I have.

The hoods though look alike, are in fact different in size, ALC-SH106 on the 16-35mm and ALC-SH101 on the 24-70mm

  1. Using F8 is more sharper than F14, right?

  3. Thanks for posting HKP. I should receive mine tomorrow. What really amazes me about this line-up is how compact they are. Heavy, yes but I don’t mind that because the physical size is delightful. I have grown to love the A900 along with these exquisite lenses.
