Best Sony Lens for Macro Photography

  By Evelyn Drake

 

What is the best Sony full-frame lens to achieve close up photos with a 1:1 magnification ratio? The telephoto Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens for Sony’s E-mount cameras balances sharpness and dreamy bokeh. The result is highly detailed images with excellent background separation. 

Key Features: 

  • Designed for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras. 
  • Also compatible with Sony’s APS-C system providing a 135mm equivalent focal length.
  • Life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio
  • 28cm (11”) Minimum focusing distance 
  • Optical image stabilization
  • 62mm filter thread 
  • Dust and moisture resistant 

This dedicated macro lens features a fast f/2.8 aperture for controlling depth of field and provides good performance in low light situations. It also has a Nano AR coating to help prevent flare and ghosting. The lens elements were designed reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations while improving clarity.

It provides accurate focusing to pair nicely with Sony’s latest autofocus technology. The handy focus hold button and focus range limiter optimizes performance. We love how the focusing ring slides forwards and backwards to easily switch between auto and manual focusing. It also features built-in optical image stabilization preventing handheld camera shake issues. 

The 90mm focal length allows for a bit of working distance from the subject. For capturing insects with stingers or venom, you can capture fine details without disturbing your subject. Since macro subjects are all around us in any season, now is a great time to enjoy the possibilities of close-up photography using a Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens
