Sony - providing lenses for testing
Lens Reviews - Sony Alpha/NEX (APS-C)

As you may have noticed you can find numerous Lens Tests here in Photozone. These lenses were usually not supplied by manufacturers but by readers like you (or we bought them just like you do)! So far more than 400 lenses were provided by readers and counting! Therefore the tested lenses are neither hand-picked nor financed otherwise.

If you're living in AUSTRALIA (yes, I am located in Sydney) and would like to help beefing up the list of reviews, you may consider loaning one or more of your lenses for testing purposes. Naturally we would pay for all your shipping expenses.
You would also be eligible for a small rental fee depending on the value of the target lens(es).

The standard procedure would be as follows:

  1. contact us to schedule a date and for clarifying any questions you might have.
  2. send the INSURED package (preferably standard postal service).
  3. once I've received the package I will test the lens(es) during the following circa business 3 days before ...
  4. ... returning the package to you again

The following lenses would have a top priority (please don't offer other lenses at this stage):

  • Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8
  • Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2
  • Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8
  • Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 GM
  • Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM
  • Sony 85mm f/1.8
  • Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4
  • Zeiss FE 50mm f/1.4

We're well aware that some would like to see reviews of legacy lenses but due to time constraints this is not possible at this stage.

So if you're owning one or more of these lenses and would like to support the idea just drop me a line to my email address below.

best regards
