There are a plethora of lenses available for Sony’s E-mount, especially when you factor in both APS-C and full frame. Here’s a list of the ten best that you can buy as we approach the end of 2021.
Sony user Arthur R has put together a list of his favorites, all of which he has bought himself and uses regularly. Viewers will be pleased to see that he’s not chosen a ton of Sony’s most expensive glass but has instead opted for a raft of more affordable options that typically perform beyond what you would expect given their price. Also, seeing this list, you appreciate how much of the heavy lifting has been done by Sigma in terms of making Sony’s APS-C cameras a solid choice in the long term for both photographers and filmmakers.
One lens that I’d personally add to this list is the Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 (currently $100 off at $799), adding a wide-angle zoom to Arthur’s gear. Given that Tamron has just overhauled its ludicrously successful 28-75mm f/2.8, we might see an updated version of this popular lens as well sometime in the next 12 to 18 months.
Which other non-GM lenses would you include? Let us know in the comments below.
