  200mm end resolution test

   Next we will test the resolution of FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS in the actual scene. The entire scene has a rich level of detail, and the frontal composition is also used to ensure that the edge of the picture can also be in focus, so that the resolution of the edge can be better reflected and be relatively objective. The camera used is Sony’s full-frame Mirrorless™ A9. The first test is the 100mm end.

   We can see through comparison By the way, the performance of the various apertures in the center of the 200mm end of this lens is very average, and the picture quality is the best when it is received at F8. The resolution of the edges is reduced relative to the center, but overall it is very satisfactory. The best aperture is also at F8. Therefore, the best aperture of 100mm is F8.

  400mm end resolution test

   After reading the 200mm end resolution, let’s take a look at the 400mm end resolution. The test method is the same as the 200mm end.

   We can see by comparison By the way, the performance of the various apertures in the center of the 200mm end of this lens is very average, and the picture quality is the best when it is received at F8. The resolution of the edges is reduced relative to the center, but overall it is very satisfactory. The best aperture is also at F8.

  600mm end resolution test

   Finally, the 600mm end resolution test, the test method is the same as the first two focal lengths.

   We can see by comparison By the way, the performance of the various apertures in the center of the 600mm end of this lens is very average, and the picture quality is the best when it is received at F8. The resolution of the edge is lower than that of the center, but overall it is very satisfactory. The best aperture is also at F8

  dispersion test

   In addition to the resolution performance, The anti-dispersion ability of a lens, that is, its ability to suppress “purple fringing”, is also a very important quality of a lens. In the face of backlighting, high-contrast and landscape shooting, the impact of dispersion on the picture can also not be ignored. Next, we also use real shots to understand the anti-dispersion performance of Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS.

   passed After testing the 100% screenshots of the sample, we can see that the Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS performs very well in controlling the dispersion. There is no obvious dispersion and purple at the 200mm end and the 600mm end under the blocked aperture. Side situation happened. It can be said that the optical design of this lens is very good.

   Aperture Test

   Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS adopts a circular aperture composed of 11 blades, which is only the treatment of Sony G master lens . Let’s take a look at it through test samples.

   from In the test chart, you can clearly see the difference in the background blur effect at different apertures, and because the FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS itself has the advantage of telephoto blur, it is coupled with the circular aperture of 11 blades. , So there is still a very good background defocusing effect under the small aperture of F36.

   vignetting test

   Through the real shot test, we can see that the Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS only has a very slight vignetting when the aperture is fully opened, and there is no more after the aperture is reduced by one stop. Vignetting. Therefore, it can be said that Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS is very good in vignetting control.
