  • Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM SAL-2875

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Nice range for FF, very sharp at center, accurate focus, good flare control
    Very soft at edges, Price, no sealing, slight vignet

    A very good travel lens on FF, excellent sharpness at center at all apertures, but somehow soft on edges, very soft at wide apertures, a bit less when stopped down. Color rendition is excellent, has a very good flare control, but vignetting is apparent (though fixable with processing).
    If you need to take just one lens for a trip, then this is quite a good choice.
