Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS 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.

Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Reviews

Sony 90mm macro vs Sigma 105mm

By Donna

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

Love of look

Before I traded in with my 50mm macro, I read a lot of reviews and I agree with all. This is the perfect lens I have been looking for as an amateur photographer, and so easy to use.

I traded my Canon 100mm 2.8 for this lens and do not regret it. The 90mm is sharper from the get go. With first use, I noticed that through the viewfinder and looking at shots, much sharper. I have a Sony digital, so adding the macro was a no brainer. The 90mm G OSS is Sony's sharpest lens. Would recommend.

It works great

Only one day of shooting with this lens... but so far it is meeting the high expectations set by all the reviews. So easy to get great macro shots with high sharpness and beautiful colors. The feature set (switches, button, clutch for manual focus) seems perfect for macro. And I expect it to work great as a short telephoto.

If you are looking for a medium fixed prime for a Sony full-frame body with macro capabilities, IS and fast autofocus, I highly recommend this one. This is a great lens. Period.

My favorite Macro lens!

Prior to purchasing this lens, I actually rented it a few times. I've rented this along with the 105mm by Sigma. After comparing the two, they were very similar, but the one thing that got me going for this over the other is the fact that this lens has OSS vs the other which doesn't. This makes it nice to capture fairly stable footage by hand holding for video and even photos.

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.

You want sharp? Then get this!

I research lenses pretty heavily before purchasing and saw so many places recommend this lense, as well as test results being fantastic for optics. Because of that, I had previously rented this lens to test it out and was amazed by how clear it is on my A7iii. So, I waited for it to be on sale and bought it! It's awesome for macro, close ups, or portraits. It is ridiculously sharp and the 2.8 gets a nice narrow area for those close ups. Who also doesn't love the built in stabilization? It helps so much! The auto focus works really well when not doing super close up/macro, but that is expected in my opinion and it still does a good job! The slide focus ring to switch from auto to manual focus is also nice as it makes it easy on the fly. You get fine adjustment with the ring when in manual, so you can focus exactly where you want. You can't go wrong with this lens.

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).

how Is the weight and volume data?
Asked by: Jaime
I love this lens. It isn't a featherweight but it's worth owning. It takes great photos. I use it on a A7rii and also have the 24-70mm zoom. As far as the volume goes, it's also not super small. Probably about as big as the Nikon 105mm micro Nikkor. Not a very technical explanation but hope it helps.
