Sony FE 16 35 : Decentered or too picky

Recommended Posts


I have recently bought a FE 16-35f4. I've been testing it a bit, and it seems to me the left border is weaker than the right border at 16mm, and I'd say until 24mm at least, at all apertures.

Am I being too picky, or would you also suspect some decentering here, and return the lens for a new one ?

This shot was shot at infinity, f5.6, ISO 100.

I already have a B25f2, so the main point of this lens is to shoot between 16mm and 24mm. At 24mm, on a 24MP body, it's super close to the Batis if focused properly (it seems to have more field curvature than the Batis), save in the extreme corners. But at 16mm, I really notice there's something off in the left border.

Thanks in advance for your replies !

I mainly use my local Jessops , for my cameras lenses etc, and if anything doesn`t seem right, I go in and ask.

Presumably any reputable dealer, would be able to look at your originals, and tell you , if the lens is defective, in any way.

Perhaps  google  independent reviews of that lens, to see what others have experienced ?



Good Luck
