Well the Sony FE 28mm f/2
is nothing if not very Sony. Sharper wide open but not improving all
that much while stopping down. The Nikon is very classic Nikon, soft in
the corners wide open, sharpens considerably while stopped down.
For landscape photography I find little
to reccomend the $450 Sony FE 28mm f/2
between the minimum focusing distance and infinity focus performance,
the Nikkor is superior, especially with a good copy. Perhaps my version
of the Sony FE 28mm f/2 is just poor, which wouldn't be too surprising
with their reputation for bad quality control. Everr wonder why their quality control is so bad? This must be a day in the life at the factory.
