Bericht Re: Top 50 best Sony A-Mount objectieven
For those who don't own a Sony Alpha / A Mount camera and accidently stumbled across our top 50 Sony Alpha / A Mount lenses feature, you should head over to our 'Best Gear' section where you'll find top lists that focus on other brands, lens focal lengths, camera types, accessories and more. 
 
Number 1: Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD (F017) 
The 90mm from Tamron has always had a good reputation and the latest version of this reliable lens doesn't disappoint. This one takes performance to a new peak and is very comfortable to use. The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD offers superb sharpness, fast and silent AF, and beautiful bokeh. CA is well controlled, there's virtually no distortion in images and the lens is very resistant to flare. 
There does remain the possibility of picking up the previous model at a much lower price but that is always a dilemma when lenses are updated.
Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation
----------------
Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD 
The Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD performs impeccably and handles really well. The price is reasonable and actually, there's very little not to like about this lens. Yes, it offers a slightly slower maximum aperture of f/1.8 (many 85mm lenses are f/1.4 designs) but if you don't have a definite need for an f/1.4 then the Tamron 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD delivers superb quality at a more reasonable price level. CA, flare, distortion etc. are handled really well. Bokeh looks pleasing and you also get a 5-year warranty when you purchase this lens which is reassuring. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
---------------------
Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art 
Sigma has created a lens which performs well in terms of sharpness and other optical attributes, for a fairly reasonable price. The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens offers outstanding sharpness, virtually no CA or distortion and when compared to similar alternatives, it's a bit of a bargain. Build quality is excellent and fast, silent focusing is the cherry on the cake.  
This combination of price versus performance will almost certainly win many fans for this lens, even despite its large size and weight for a 50mm optic.
 ---------------------------------------
Samyang 35mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC 
If you're looking for a sharp, moderate wide angle with a fast aperture and can live with focusing manually, you needn't look further.
The performance at f/1.4 is amazing for a lens that costs under £400, and this is with good build quality, low CA, distortion and falloff that is typical of lenses with a fast aperture like this. Flare may be more of an issue than with manufacturer's own lenses, but so long as you take care in situations that may cause problems, this lens will reward you with sharp, contrasty images and money left for other things.
Overall, the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 offers amazing performance at a very good price.
 ---------------------------------
Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 VC USD 
The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD offers very good optical performance for a reasonable price. Despite the chunky size, the lens isn't overly heavy and the moisture resistant construction should provide some peace of mind when shooting outdoors in changeable conditions.
Those looking for a 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom may wish to check out this lens as a suitable alternative to manufacturer’s own offerings. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
Tamron SP AF 60mm f/2 DiII Macro 1:1  Macro lenses have a real appeal and are extremely versatile optics, usable for a very wide range of subjects. The f/2 maximum aperture makes this Tamron SP AF 60mm f/2 DiII Macro 1:1 lens even more desirable and the performance lives up to the expectation. Plus, with a street price of around £324, this is real value for money lens.
-----------------------------------
 Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD 
Tamron has created an excellent lens which is certainly more than capable of delivering excellent results in a wide range of conditions. The Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD sports premium features such as weather sealing, and exotic optical coatings in a reasonably lightweight body. Travellers, in particular, will appreciate the relatively light weight lens for its size, weather sealing and robust build. 
The price may seem a little high for some but this is the only thing that blots an otherwise clean copy-book. Overall, the Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD delivers excellent results with premium features. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
----------------------
Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD 
The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD offers premium features, such as weather sealing, and silent autofocus, which will make it an interesting alternative to other similar lenses. It is certainly capable of delivering excellent quality images, with high sharpness in the centre of the frame. Whether those extra features are worth the extra expense to you will depend largely on how you use the lens. For example, travellers may find weather sealing invaluable to them. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation.
-------------------- 
 Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD 
With this lens, Tamron has created something that offers plenty of reach at the telephoto end while still being able to deliver good sharpness for a reasonable price. The Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di lens delivers very good sharpness in the centre, offers excellent build quality and is very good value for money. Add to this low CA and low distortion and you've got a damn good lens. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
----------------------------------------------
Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS 
Those looking for wide aperture lenses for the APS-C or smaller format camera need not continue looking at full frame lenses, that generally cost and weigh more now this lens is available. Although some photographers may find manual focusing off-putting, spending a little time practising and getting used to how the lens behaves will pay dividends in the long run. This is especially true when considering how little the Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS costs and how excellently it performs. 
--------------------------------
Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM 
Sigma appears to have everything right with the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM. It delivers excellent optical quality, at a tempting price point. What is impressive is that they seem to have been able to achieve this, without cutting any corners. Those looking for a wide aperture lens at this focal length will do well to add this lens to their list of lenses to consider.
------------------------------------------
Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC 
Although this tilt-shift lens is far from being an inexpensive optic, it does bring tilt-shift control within the reach of more people. It manages to be less expensive, whilst offering excellent optical performance, great build quality and handling.
Those in the market for a tilt-shift lens should definitely add the Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC to this list of considered optics.
 -------------------------------------------------
Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM 
Sigma seems to have pulled out all the stops for this lens, the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM C. Not only is it capable of producing images with excellent sharpness, but the zoom range is very useful, as is the close focusing ability and the optical stabilisation. The build quality is good for the price, too.
There are a couple of minor niggles with the lens, such as the focus ring rotating during autofocus, but to be honest these are only minor issues. In terms of performance for the price, this lens is superb!
------------------------------------------
Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Diagonal Fisheye 
his lens is a top-class piece of optical design, capable of producing images with very good resolution. It has a silent focusing motor and the curved hood design does a very good job of shielding the front element from extraneous light.
The Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC Diagonal Fisheye offers excellent resolution when stopped down, CA is kept to acceptable levels and build quality is excellent. 
--------------------------------------
Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD 
This telephoto optic from Tamron has proven itself to be very capable indeed. It is capable of producing images with very good resolution across the image area at all focal lengths and optical aberrations such as colour fringing and distortions are kept well within acceptable thresholds.
The Ultrasonic Drive makes the focusing speed more sprightly than can be found on other Tamron lenses. Overall, this lens is a very good performer that's built well and represents good value for money. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
------------------------------
Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 
The Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens is an excellent performer and that performance is well maintained at all focal lengths. It is heavy but relatively compact, so carrying over several hours is not too onerous, providing a suitable sling or strap is employed. The controls operate smoothly and nothing is placed so that it might be accidentally switched on or off. All in all, the Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 is a very soundly designed optic that offers excellent results. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
--------------------------------------------
 Samyang 20mm f/1.8 ED AS UMC 
20mm lenses are very attractive for the wide angle photographer, wide enough to be interesting, but not so wide as to be very difficult to handle. We have here a lens that is well made, has a very high standard of performance, and a reasonable price tag. Without a doubt, the Samyang 20mm f/1.8 ED AS UMS adds up to being a very good deal and it's also a pleasure to use. 
-----------------------------------------
 Venus Laowa 12mm f/2.8 
A unique lens, well made, with extraordinary performance, the Venus Laowa 12mm f/1.8 is really rather excellent. There are those who will struggle with the manual focus, but there are solutions to this with various techniques. There's no doubt that the lens performs exactly as claimed and should give excellent service for a very long time. As a result, it comes Highly Recommended from ePHOTOzine. 
 -------------------------------------------
Laowa 105mm f/2 T3.2 Smooth Trans Focus 
Laowa certainly knows how to make exciting and different lenses. It's always good to see lenses that go beyond the pure technicalities, offering some unique “feel” or “character” to images. The Apodization filter is very clever, it works and the bokeh offered is indeed superb, whilst the sharpness of the main subject is not compromised in the slightest.
Despite some handling inconvenience, the Laowa 105mm f/2 T3.2 Smooth Trans Focus lens is fun to use and a challenge to become proficient with. It may not be for everyone, but for those willing to get to grips with it the reward will be in that sublime, creamy smooth bokeh.
------------------------------
 Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art 
The Sigma 20mm f/1.4 Art Lens is most definitely a fine example of the lens makers' art. It performs superbly, it focuses close, it is free from flare and controls CA in a remarkable way. The price may seem high to some but overall, the Sigma 20mm f/1.4 is a unique ultra-wide, bright lens with superb optical quality.
Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fish-eye 
The 12mm fisheye lens from Samyang offers excellent value due to the low price and excellent build quality. Add to this the fact it is capable of producing images with outstanding sharpness and that it offers a unique stereographic projection and you have a lens that should be high on the wishlist of anyone looking for a diagonal fisheye for their full-frame DSLR.
-----------------------------------------------
Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM II 
The Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM II is an excellent lens, that performs well, and is priced well enough to be considered good value for money too. The build quality is very good, although it is a little strange that it is not weather sealed, as you may expect lenses pitched at this level to be. Even so, this should prove to be a very popular lens, as its predecessor was thanks to the improved autofocus speed and anti-reflective coatings, which are both welcome improvements.
----------------------------------------------
Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD 
The Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is lightweight and features a compact design which makes it perfect for travel, especially when paired with a more compact SLR body. During testing, it proved itself more than capable of delivering excellent quality results when used within its limitations, and the extra 70mm, silent focusing and compact dimensions all make a noticeable difference to the usability of this lens and should be taken into consideration when making a buying decision. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
--------------------------------------
Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro 
Not only have Tamron delivered a lens that offers a uniquely huge zoom range, but they've managed to make one that performs well, is well specified, and is good value too. Although those who will only really be sated by the absolute sharpest of lenses may not be overly excited by this lens, those who value convenience will find this lens is more than adequate for general photography. The compact size, lightweight and splash proof construction make this lens an ideal travel companion, and the lens' ability to focus down to 39cm makes frame-filling close-ups possible.
Overall, this is a very versatile lens, which should win over many fans. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
-------------------------------------
 Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro  
For the price, the Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro Interchangeable lens represents excellent value for money, producing images with superb resolution at shorter focal lengths and good build quality, all in a relatively lightweight package.
Although the resolution does drop off at 200m, it will still be good enough when stopped down to F/4 or below and as such, will still please most people looking for a wide aperture telephoto on a budget.
-------------------------------------------
Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD 
Superzoom lenses like this offer a versatile, compact option which is great for travel, or simply for when a large zoom range is convenient. This lens has resistance to dust and moisture and fast focusing which means the Tamron 28-300mm can be used in a wide range of shooting scenarios, further increasing the convenience on offer. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation.
 --------------------------------------------------------
Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro 
Overall, the Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 lens is a great choice for those wishing to travel light. It delivers sharp, contrasty images throughout the zoom range and costs less than comparable alternatives.
Build quality is great for a lens this inexpensive, as are focus speeds. The fact it focuses close, as well, will make this lens an ideal, good value travel companion.
--------------------------------------------
 Samyang 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC 
If you've ever fancied experimenting with a fast aperture prime telephoto lens before, but have been put off by the cost, the Samyang 85mm could be the answer. Even though this lens is aimed at cinematographers, using their SLRs for video work, it is equally at home used for still images.
-----------------------------------------
 Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM A 
The Sigma 24-105mm lens certainly is capable of producing outstanding clarity, at a price that is comparable to those of camera manufacturers own lenses. It should certainly be considered as a viable alternative if you're in the market for a lens of this specification. The lens offers excellent sharpness, good build quality, effective OS and a constant f/4 maximum aperture. 
--------------------------------------------------
Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC 
For the price, this Samyang 24mm f/1.4 offers a decent, budget introduction to fast aperture lenses. Although the sharpness delivered at f/1.4 may not be up to that delivered my manufacturer’s own lenses, it may still be usable for some applications, and it certainly costs a lot less too.
-----------------------------------------
Sigma 100-300mm f/4 EX DG IF HSM  
 This unusual lens is an excellent performer overall. It is capable of producing images with great clarity and the build quality is good enough to take a fair bit of use and abuse. The Sigma 100-300mm offers good resolution throughout the zoom range, quick focusing and is reasonably priced. 

 ------------------------------------------------
Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC  
The Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC lens performs very well indeed, especially at the centre and is punching way above its weight in many areas. It has high central sharpness, low CA, low flare and an incredibly low price. There are performance compromises but for anyone wanting an inexpensive, versatile holiday or travel lens this is terrific value for money. Please note, the Sony A mount version of this lens does not feature VC, as Sony A mount cameras feature built-in image stabilisation. 
-----------------------------------------
Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro Lens 
This is a very versatile lens with some unique features for the focal length. It has commendably high central sharpness and very low levels of CA. Distortion and vignetting are high and edge sharpness suffers. In the right hands, the Laowa 15mm f/4 should produce some excellent dramatic images, all at a fairly modest price level. 
----------------------------
Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II 
Even if you discount the fact that this 8mm fisheye is a high-quality lens, that's reasonably priced, this is a very interesting lens. It is capable of producing images with excellent sharpness, the build quality is good, and the removable hood adds extra flexibility, allowing the lens to be used as a partial circular fisheye on full frame cameras. Even the lack of autofocus shouldn’t put you off this lens, as the depth of field available with a fisheye, makes focusing manually incredibly easy.
--------------------------------------
 Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Macro OS HSM C 
 The Sigma 18-300mm is certainly capable of delivering images with decent sharpness. It is reasonably compact, well built and the price is very reasonable too. Those looking for a lens covering a wide range of focal lengths, whilst allowing them to travel light should certainly give this lens serious consideration.
---------------------------------------------
Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA SSM 
Lenses bearing the Carl Zeiss name tend to be luxury items and carry a luxury price tag as a result. Although this lens performs well in many areas, the high CA levels at fast apertures and fairly poor sharpness towards the edges of the frame at maximum aperture isn't typically what you'd expect of Carl Zeiss.
Even with the excellent weather resistant build, the asking price still seems very expensive for a 50mm f/1.4. There will be those who find this good value for their needs, but only a niche group of people will be able to justify such an outlay for this lens.
-----------------------------
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM A  
This lens is a great choice for those looking for a high quality, standard lens with a fast maximum aperture. The Sigma 30mm offers very good sharpness in the centre, it's very well built and offers low falloff as well as low distortion. 
-----------------------------------------
 Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS  
Overall, this Samyang lens is a good performer, for a decent price. The combination of good sharpness levels and a relatively fast f/2.8 maximum aperture should have London estate agents excited, as they will be able to make their dark dingy shoebox-sized bedsits look like bright, airy mansions, thanks to the wide angle of view and fast maximum aperture. Other people will just enjoy the excellent overall performance that they can get with this lens, without breaking the bank.
----------------------------------
Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC 

Although this basic lens may not be for everyone, those looking for an ultra-wide lens, which is capable of delivering excellent quality when used within its limitations can't go far wrong with this 14mm from Samyang.
Centre sharpness is excellent from maximum aperture, and the quality towards the edges of the frame improves to excellent levels with the lens stopped down to f/5.6 or beyond. Discerning photographers may find the wavy distortion and pronounced falloff of illumination towards the corners off-putting, but those on a budget should be delighted with the quality of images this lens can deliver, for a bargain basement price.
 -----------------------------------------------
Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM 
Without a doubt, this lens out performs some manufacturer's 50mm offerings, but not all of them. The sharpness in the centre is this lens' strong point, so if you tend to shoot at wide apertures this could be the lens for you. The Sigma 50mm also offers low vignetting and the 7mm filter size is the same as most professional level zooms. 
 -------------------------------------------
Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM 
Sigma's 10-20mm is a very interesting lens indeed. The comparatively bright constant f/3.5 aperture make composing and confirming focus in low light conditions easier than with its slower predecessor, which will certainly help those shooting dimly-lit interiors and at night.
The 82mm filter thread may put some off this lens, as the price for filters such as circular polarisers sky-rockets when you venture beyond 77mm. Even taking this into account, this optic still represents excellent value for money. 
-------------------------------------- 
Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM 
Having such a wide field of view, coupled with the close minimum focus distance of only 24cm, makes this lens a lot of fun to use. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, especially if you like to use filters on your wide lenses, and a lens as wide as this can be quite a challenge to use well. Saying that, if you find yourself hitting the stop at the wide end of the zoom on your current APS-C compatible ultra-wide zoom, then this lens is certainly worth a look.
Overall the Sigma 8-16mm is well built, well priced and performs pretty well. Just like its full-frame 12-24mm cousin, this lens is one of a kind and should find a home in plenty of photographer's kit bags.
--------------------------------------------
Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX 
Overall the Tokina AF 11-16mm is a unique prospect for APS-C cameras and a very good performer. It is a shame that the levels of chromatic aberration are so high towards the edges, but if you can live with correcting this afterwards in image editing software, then this lens will reward you with sharp, contrasty wide angle images for a very reasonable price.
 -----------------------------------------
Sony DT 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 SAM 
Kit lenses are usually nothing special, but this lens has proved itself a very capable performer during testing, especially in the areas of resolution and control of colour aberrations. Although the features of this Sony DT 18-55mm lens are basic, if you can live without the luxuries of internal focusing, a wider maximum aperture, or a silent focus motor, then this lens could well meet your needs, especially in terms of image quality.
-------------------------------------

Sony DT 30mm F/2.8 SAM Macro 
Overall, this is a very interesting lens, especially when its price is taken into consideration. It offers a macro solution that is capable of producing images of very good quality, so long as it is used within its limitations.
Those photographers looking for a budget introduction to macro photography with their Sony digital SLR should be very pleased with the performance and value the Sony DT 30mm offers.
--------------------------------
Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM 
During testing, this Sigma 70-200mm lens has proved itself quite capable of producing excellent results. For the most part, the sharpness in the centre is very good, or even excellent. Unfortunately, its Achilles heel is the performance wide open at 70mm, where it is a bit lacklustre.
Sigma's optical stabiliser is certainly capable and is about as effective as the system found in marque lenses which adds to the feeling of good value this lens provides.
 ----------------------------------
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM 
On paper, this lens looks like a winner and the specification for the price is very good indeed. Although the resolution in the centre is usually good, the same cannot be said about the quality towards the edges, especially at wide apertures. 
Saying that the build quality is good, the optical stabiliser works quite well and the 17-50mm is capable of excellent results if used within its limits. If you can't compromise to stay within those limits, you may find better value with an alternative lens.
 -----------------------------------------
Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM 
The Sigma 120-400mm represents a good value choice for those looking for a super-telephoto lens, without the extortionate price tag associated with some camera manufacturer's own lenses in this range. For its price, it has excellent build quality and a good range of useful features, such as Optical Stabilisation and silent focusing, but some aspects of handling could still be improved, like the looseness of the zoom mechanism.
The lens does have some limitations, but so long as you are aware of these, it is still capable of producing very good quality images in the right hands
 ----------------------------------
Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM 
Summing this lens up in a paragraph or two is actually quite difficult, as it's almost like it's two completely different lenses at once. The first one being an f/2.8 zoom lens, which should be great for low light photography, but unfortunately falls slightly below par in terms of performance, especially at focal lengths beyond 35mm. Here the resolution at maximum aperture just isn't what you'd expect for a flagship lens from any lens manufacturer.
Now, if we were to consider this lens as having a maximum aperture of f/4, it would be amongst the best performing lenses covering these focal lengths. Sharpness across the frame is excellent.It's a shame the Sigma 24-70mm has this split personality as the build quality is generally very good, and the lens is very pleasant to use.If you're after a high-performance f/2.8 lens, you may find better performance elsewhere. On the other hand, if your photography allows you to stop down to f/4 or smaller much of the time, then this lens is a superb performer
------------------------------------------
Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM 
Although the Sony DT 50mm lens is not the best performer when it comes to resolution at maximum aperture, it should still make a great portrait lens when stopped down a little for those on a budget. The out of focus blur is quite smooth and pleasant too. Stopping the lens down to moderate aperture yields images with superb resolution across the frame, which isn't bad for a lens of this price.

Bericht Re: Top 50 best Sony A-Mount objectieven
De titel dekt niet helemaal de lading. Het gaat om een lijst van de 50 beste A-mount objectieven die door degene die de lijst heeft samengesteld zijn getest.

Dat is "enigszins" misleidend, omdat onbekend is welke Sony/Minolta objectieven zijn getest en op welke plaats die dan zouden zijn geeindigd. Het zullen er mogelijk niet veel zijn, slechts enkele duiken op in de top 50. Ik heb er slechts een van, en die staat op plaats 24.

Daardoor is de lijst niet echt informatief. Ik kan me voorstellen dat je als gebruiker van een A-mount camera interesse hebt in alternatieven voor meestal prijzige Sony of "oude" Minolta objectieven. Maar deze lijst helpt daar niet veel bij, omdat in de meeste gevallen er geen vergelijking is met "the real thing".

Ik zou wel eens willen zien hoe klassiekers als de Minolta 200/2.8 of de Minolta 35/1.4 afsteken bij moderne alternatieven.

Bericht Re: Top 50 best Sony A-Mount objectieven
Ik denk dat de schrijver een dwarsdoorsnede van verkrijgbare A-Mount objectieven op verschillende prijsniveau's heeft verzameld......
Als de lijst echt op 'kwaliteitsvolgorde' moest staan zou er totaal iets anders uit de bus gaan komen.

Met Carl Zeiss en G-Glas boven aan de lijst........... 135mm f/1.8, 85mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4,
Ook verschillende Minolta objectieven als de bijv de Minolta AF 200 mm f/2.8 kunnen er dan tussen.... Maar die is echt met een kaarsje te zoeken.

Ik ben hevig aan het testen met de 'Gouwe Ouwe' Minolta's maar ik denk nu al te kunnen zeggen dat een aantal fameuze Minolta's het af laten weten i.c.m. de 42 Mp Alpha 99 mKII !!!!! De Minolta AF 100mm f/2.0 laat nogal wat chromatische aberratie zien bij volle lensopening. ( f/2.0 ) Dat was me eerlijk gezegd niet eerder opgevallen :) :) :) De moderne Carl Zeiss en G objectieven lijden hier helemaal niet aan. Romantiek is fijn, maar testen levert echt meer info op.
De Minolta AF 35 mm f/2.0 geeft bijv helemaal geen krimp en ik zie zelfs reviews waar met de stokoude ( 1986-1993 ) versie van de Minolta AF 100 mm f/2.8 MACRO wordt gestest. Met dit objectief durf ik geen vrouwenportretten te maken, dan ben ik gelijk een groot deel van mijn fanclub kwijt.... Alleen de AF is een beetje traag, maar dit is bij portretfotografie minder belangrijk.

Ik denk dat dat inderdaad het geval zal zijn - en dat is ook geen schande. Toen destijds die objectieven werden ontworpen, was een oplossend vermogen zoals een 42MP camera sensor kan registreren, met de toen gangbare films, volkomen onhaalbaar. Er was dus ook geen enkele behoefte aan, want je zou de "kwaliteit" nooit in een afdruk terug kunnen zien.

Voor de macroobjectieven lag dat anders. Daar heeft altijd de afbeeldingskwaliteit in het dichtbij bereik voorop gestaan en is altijd veel aandacht besteed aan het beperken van allerlei beeldafwijkingen. Dat kon ook worden getest - er was zwartwit documentfilm beschikbaar met een veel hogere resolutie dan de normaal gebruikte film, zij het met een zeer lage gevoeligheid. Het is dus niet zo verwonderlijk dat een "oud" macroobjectief nog steeds "messcherp" en "vrouwonvriendelijk" blijkt.

Ook de 200/2.8 kan nog steeds mee, zij het om een andere reden. Het is een van de weinige "APO" objectieven binnen de alpha familie, en dat is een erg dure constructie gebaseerd op ingewikkelde berekeningen en op glassoorten die nu om verschillende redenen niet meer beschikbaar zijn. Ook andere fabrikanten hadden destijds dergelijke objectieven, maar inmiddels heeft men andere en veel goedkopere wegen gevonden om voor een groot publiek acceptabele beeldkwaliteit beschikbaar te maken.

Het zal dus uiteindelijk best zo zijn dat een aantal "gouwe ouwe" met de nieuwe "scherprechtersensors" door de mand gaan vallen, en niet alleen die van Minolta. Qua gebruikscomfort met de ouderwetse "klink klonk AF" deden ze dat al langer.

Het zou interessant zijn als je die verschillen ook zichtbaar zou kunnen maken, bijvoorbeeld door identieke opnames te maken met zowel een a99 als met een a99II met een en hetzelfde objectief. Mogelijk blijkt dan dat sommige "oudjes" nog best mee kunnen en andere inmiddels door recentere A-mount objectieven worden voorbij gestoken. Gezien het feit dat het Sony aanbod van nieuwe A-mount objectieven tamelijk bescheiden is, zullen waarschijnlijk andere leveranciers dan in veel gevallen beter afsteken. Sony lijkt meer geinteresseerd in het aanbieden en ontwikkelen van sensors dan van objectieven. Uiteindelijk is het ook van oorsprong een electronicabedrijf en is de mechanisch/optische bedrijvigheid er ooit bijgekomen als onderdeel van een grotere deal. De A-mount was daarbij een vehikel om de sensorproducten te kunnen demonstreren (en die vervolgens op grote schaal aan anderen te kunnen verkopen). De E-mount is een min of meer logisch gevolg: een vatting met veel minder mechanische onderdelen en meer electronische integratie, beschikbaar voor iedereen met als gevolg dat nieuwe sensortypen ook in "eigen" camera's tegenwoordig goed verkopen in een marktsegment dat daarvoor nauwelijks bestond.

Is de A-mount daarmee "dood"? Uiteindelijk wel denk ik, al is niet precies te voorzien hoe lang dat nog gaat duren. Uiteindelijk zal men ooit een beslissing nemen - afhankelijk van hoe succesvol men kan zijn met het ten dele verdringen van Nikon en Canon uit de professionele markt. De successen op dat vlak zijn nog steeds bescheiden.

Lijkt mij een interessante exercitie......

Een veldtest met de A99 en de A99 Mk II op statief op lage ISO met de Minolta AF 100 mm f/2.0 op volle lensopening.
Daarna dezelfde test met de Minolta AF 100 mm f/2.8 MACRO.....

Ga ik aan werken..
