Fotodiox tough E-mount – Image comparison page 3

The last in the test is the Sony 85mm F1.4 Planar Zeiss lens with Sony LA-EA4. With this lens being used at F1.4, I did manual focusing on the centre in magnified view with focus peaking to help achieve the sharpest focus.

Conclusion:

1) None of these lenses seem to show any significant difference in corner performance (to me anyway_ when comparing the original vs tough E-mount. This may be as a result of them not causing any significant flexing at the mount, which could impact on image quality.

2) The tough E-mount neither improves nor degrades the image quality at the corners of the lenses I have used.

3) The corner performance of the Sony 84mm F1.4 Zeiss Planar lens is pretty impressive wide open i.e. it is sharp even in the corners.
