Sony NEX-5N, Sony 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 @
210mm 1/1000 f/6.3 ISO 400
100% crop with no sharpening.
The first image in broad daylight
is pretty much what you'd expect for a zoom of this range stopped down
one stop. It's nice and sharp to the edge of the frame. It's worth
noting that to stop down just one aperture in bright daylight I had to
push the ISO one stop. In the next a little cloud cover came in,
forcing me shooting wide open and at ISO 400. F/5.6 is slow for a zoom,
and this one is just a little bit slower. Sharpness is obviously not as
good in the second image, but still holding up pretty well all the way
to the corner wide open. Better than Sony's other offerings like the
16mm and 18-55mm.
