FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's
Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens
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.
Chiaro Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens with UV Filter Kit Reviews

Not Perfect but darn close!

By Gene
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-08-22

The manual focus is fantastic. I just love the way the focus ring acts as the manual/auto switch. The focus limiter is great for macro but you do need to remember you used it. Despite people saying the auto focus is slow I found it to be quite good. My only regret is not buying this years ago.

More applications than just Macro

Initially intended to use this lens purely for Macro, but have found it helpful more many other uses, i.e. portraits. The sharpness and IQ of the lens will continue to impress you as you learn with it. Autofocus is a little slow at time, but overall it's a beautiful is a lens that you should add to your bag!

Good Glass

Pretty good glass. Still trying to work with the macro setting, but the portraits are solid. Still can't decide if I'm going to get rid of my 85 or not, but I love the extra focal length associated with it. I haven't tried filming with it yet, so my review may change. Good native glass for my Sony cameras!

I purchased this lens a couple of weeks ago prior to a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to photograph the ephemeral wildflowers. It's my first time shooting with a macro lens, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of my shots!

Phenomenal w/ learning curve

I managed to capture BIRDS in macro and this thing is SHARP. Three depth of field at 1:1 is shockingly shallow and for the first time in my life, I've been forced to stay around f9-f11. Any shallower, I wouldn't get the bird's entire eye in focus. 10/10 would recommend for people who are skilled or crafty enough to work with the learning curve.

Great lens! Amazingly Sharp

Bought this lens to do some macro photography with my Sony A7RV and have been very, very happy with it. The quality of the lens is amazing. The detail in the images are amazingly clear. Would recommend it in a heartbeat.

One of the sharpest lenses I've used

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-07-26

This lens is tack sharp and works great for macro and portrait photography. I also own a manual Laowa 90 mm macro lens, which is also sharp and has the advantage of 2X magnification, but unless you are working with a tripod and still subjects the autofocus of the Sony lens is invaluable.

I bought this lens for the sony a6500. In the manual it says that at all times both the camera and the lens should be held. Given that this is a lens for full-frame cameras how do I use this with a tripod? Is there a piece I should buy inorder to use this lens and a tripod at the same time?
Asked by: Daniela
Your camera should have a place where you can mount a tripod plate. I'm not sure what the manual means by "camera and lens should be held." I'm working with a full frame, but I don't see any reason it wouldn't work with the a6500.

Can it work with an extender?

Can it work with an extender?
Asked by: Mickey
Yes. If you are looking for full-frame extension tubes compatible for use with Sony FE-mount lenses, the Kenko DG Extension Tube Set for Full-Frame Sony E-Mount, B&H # KEEXTUBEDG, or the Vello Deluxe Auto Focus Extension Tube Set for Sony E Mount, B&H # VEEXTSFED, would work for your usage needs. As with all extension tubes, do note that you will lose infinity focus when connecting an extension tube to the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens. However, it should reduce your minimum focus distance and increase your magnification for macro photography. Both options listed above would retain autofocus, automatic exposure, automatic metering, and Optical Steady Shot image stabilization capabilities (though you may still wish to focus manually for macro photography needs).
