Inchiquin Posted August 19, 2014 Share Posted August 19, 2014 A couple of months ago I vaguely remember someone (Bryan?) saying that he wished there was a zoom lens for the NEX as good as the Canon 24-105, but I've looked back and can't find it now. At the time I think I promised to do some comparisons between the two and also the Canon FD 50mm macro that I hooked up to the NEX6. I've finally got round to doing something about it today. The results from the Canon macro were truly appalling so I need to look and see if I did something wrong before bothering to post anything. But the test between the Canon 24-105 and the Sony 16-50 was quite revealing, as shown in the 100% crops below. Both images are straight out of the camera (RAW) with capture sharpening turned off. The Sony was at 50mm, the Canon at 80mm so they are direct equivalents. The Canon shot is above, the Sony below - and clearly superior.
