Sony users searching for a full-frame macro lens that ticks all the right boxes need look no further. It features a clever clutch system that lets you switch been autofocus and manual focus instantly by snapping the focus ring to and fro. The great thing about this is that you get a manual focus ring that makes super precise focus adjustments possible. It has hard stops at either end of its focus distance range and a three-position focus limit switch is found above an optical steady shot switch. The latter, combined with the effective in body image stabilisation offered by most A7-series cameras, makes handheld shooting of subjects at life size (1:1) a breeze. It’s a macro lens that’s a sheer delight to use.
