Sony 14mm f1.8 GM lens : The Review
It has just been announced. The widest and fastest prime in their line up till now. The Sony lens 14mm f1.8 GM is indeed the widest angle prime out there. For whom is this wide-angle lens? Let’s see below at our review.
I want to clarify that I’m not a Sony ambassador and this is my personal view of this lens. Even though I’m a Sony user I will try to present you with the utmost professionalism that it deserves.
I’m an owner of the 16-35mm GM lens (you can see here my gear list). Till today, I believed that this was the perfect lens for me. Firstly it’s a zoom lens that gives me the creativity of adjusting my composition without the need of moving. Secondly it is sharp as knife from end to end. Thirdly it is economically speaking within my budget (after these years on the market you can find a good deal). And lastly, by being a zoom lens, you avoid the hassle to change your lens in any environment and get your sensor into dust or dirt and generally all the disadvantages of changing your lens in the field.
But the maximum aperture is f2.8 and not f1.8 as this prime. We all knew that one of the advantages of prime lenses are the fastest aperture and as thus Sony delivers today a masterpiece. To convert the 14mm to field of view just to inform you that the field is 114.2 degrees (Astonishing e?)
