Can the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens Keep Up With a 61-Megapixel Sensor?

A good macro lens is super versatile: useful for a lot more than just tiny details, including portraits, ring shots, and way more. For Sony shooters, the FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS looks to fill that role, but can it keep up with the demands of the 61-megapixel Sony a7R IV? This great video review takes a look. 

Coming to you from The Hybrid Shooter, this awesome video review takes a look at the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS lens and how it holds up on the 61-megapixel a7R IV mirrorless camera. Though you might not consider a macro lens if you do not shoot the genre, they are still worth looking at, as they often fill the role of ultra-sharp portrait lens at a price far below those of premium portraiture options. They also tend to be much more portable and easier to handle. Sony's version comes with a range of features, most notable being its Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for better sharpness at slow shutter speeds and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks like quite the versatile lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

all high-resolution or high-speed, or high-power systems reach the point where one component is "weaker" than the others. whether it's sensor v lens resolution, brakes v suspension control, or horsepower v tire capacity speed, there's always something that can be improved for the total systerm to perform better; and the best parts of the system always put the weakest in a poor light.
