G Lens, Macro Versatility
Get up close and personal with the 1:1 magnification ratio of the full-frame compatible Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens. As a G series lens, it perfectly balances sharpness and bokeh and, as a macro lens, close and controlled focusing performance is prioritized with advanced AF and intuitive handling.
Close-Up Capabilities
  • True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with an 11" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects.
  • Focusing distance and magnification scale is printed on top of the lens to aid in more technical applications.
  • Focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between 11-19.7", 19.7"-infinity, or full.
  • This lens' focusing ring can be slid forwards and backwards to quickly shift between manual to autofocus modes.
  • Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length during use, benefitting focus accuracy and ease of use when working distance is a concern.
G Series Optical Design
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements, including one Super ED element, are featured in the lens design to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • One aspherical element helps reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and Image Stabilization
  • Direct Drive SSM system, along with the internal focusing design, promotes responsive and precise autofocus performance that's also quiet to suit video recording applications.
  • Focus hold button permits manually stopping the autofocus at a specified point or the button can also be customized to control a variety of other assignable functions.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.

Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Reviews

Excellent, all around

The Sony 90 mm Macro is an excellent all around lens. It's a phenomenal macro lens, but also serves as a great portrait lens.

Partly good

This is a very good lens except for one very weak structural feature: the distal ring (marked AF MF) comes loose. It shows no obvious means of connection to the rest of the lens. Sony gives no help in suggesting a means of securing this part: no directions, and no offer to fix the problem. I would not recommend this lens unless you intend to glue the loose part yourself. On the other hand, maybe this ring is supposed to be held in place by weak magnetic forces. Who knows?

Perfect Macro Lens

The 90 mm is the perfect Macro lens for my Sony camera, I've been loving it with my food photography shoots as well for portrait shoots. The sharpness of this lens is beyond magnificent. Would totally recommend going with this macro lens option since it also works. amazing for macro photography, foo photography, beauty and even fashion photography.

Beyond expectations!

Sony 90mm macro vs Sigma 105mm

I tried the Sigma 105mm macro and I definitely prefer the Sony 90mm focusing system. I love the Sony 90mm macro

It's huge!

I held off of buying this lens for a few years because for me it's far too large. The A1 that I use is a nice small, compact and lightweight camera why would you want to put a telescope like this on the front of it? But I finally got tired of my 50mm Sony Macro because of too many focusing issues and I destroyed my Sony 90mm in an accident. So I took the plunge. The focus on this lens is fantastic. I love the switch between manual and auto by pulling back the focusing ring. This is intuitive, fast and doesn't require you to hunt through menus or fiddle with dials. The auto focus is responsive and works flawlessly even at a full burst mode of 24fps. This lens uses the full capabilities of my A1 which the other two lenses certainly did not. For macro work it's much too big and much too heavy. So big it's intrusive, so heavy my tripod starts to slip under the weight. Still it's super sharp, bright and again the quality and ease of focusing defeats any of the other problems so overall it's a winner. I don't regret buying it as I feared I just wish it wasn't so big. I dread taking this lens in a trip with me but it will probably be worth it.

If you're looking to open up the world of macro, this will be your go-to lens! I purchased the 90mm to start macro photography not knowing it would quickly become an absolute favorite! If this lens isn't on the camera, it's close by. I love the MF /AF quick snap on the end of the lens, it's a must-have feature!
