    So heres a few examples with some crops to show the mighty prowess of this magnificent, fast focusing wonderland. For quite a while now ive been professing that the new FE isnt all that and that this cheaper lens is not only a full stop faster, but much more sharper too. So here it is and you be the judge.
    A7 and LAEA4
    excuse the noise in the crops, this is a bit high ISO and i have not edit the full size versions yet (I deliver the webs first)

    80mm
    16277962714_d5782858ae_b.

    I got two crops to show you here, first her which is closer to the center (this image is slightly croped)

    16899088002_432b07aea8_o.

    And him which is all the way on that edge

    16280323863_2a00dbac70_o.

    That alone is amazing on its own..

    lets look at 120mm
    16712915700_6ce9eb02df_b.

    crop

    16899314391_044065262f_o.

    crazy

    heres how it handles a straight on flash at 200mm
    16900303365_4e063dcdd3_b.

    crop
    16900305615_89d4001e76_o.


    heres another at 200mm, slightly off center
    16280332593_d7720dd2b7_b.

    crop
    16899311641_2873d744e7_o.

    as you can see 200mm isnt exactly its weak spot either. So this is what Im referring to when i say the new FE cant go toe to toe with the A mounts, results with it were nowhere near this territory..
    On the downside its heavy and does have quite a bit of color fringe, plus i havent been able to find a profile for it
