Product Overview

Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS is a short telephoto macro lens for Sony E-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Sony in 2015, it has 15 elements in 11 groups.
For incremental weathers, Sony is kind enough to include weather sealing.
The 0.92x magnification opens up a lot of opportunity for macro shots. A telephoto prime lens, the Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS is well suited for portrait photography. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works.

Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
The Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS is a great choice for Sony kits. While the wide-aperture corner delivers remarkable results, the center of the frame is also stellar. With OSS, this lens is easily handholdable and subjects, both macro and normal, abound.
