Yesterday in New York, Sony launched the new a6300 camera and a trio of lenses in the company’s brand new G Master lens line. These lenses are designed, according to Sony, to provide the highest possible resolution from today’s sensors and are designed to keep pace with technological advances in the years to come. The company uses their own glass production facilities to craft these lenses, and include super-high quality topics, they report. The company gave journalists the opportunity to sample the new lenses. We have posted a gallery of these images on the Flickr site of Sony Mirrorless Pro, who I was also writing for. The new 85mm f/1.4 GM and the 24-70mm f/2.8 GM were made available, and will ship in March. The closest comparison for the 85mm f/1.4 is the current Zeiss Batis lens, which has, as far as we’ve seen today, a very similar look. We will have these lenses in for review in a few weeks, and will be doing more extensive testing, but in initial testing these lenses performed excellently, living up to Sony’s claims of smooth “bokeh” and impressive sharpness. Of course, we’ll take photos of bikes with those lenses. When the a6300 and the lenses start shipping, you can order them online from Amazon, like the rest of Sony’s popular Alpha Series.
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
