I’ve recently been out and about shooting some spring flower photos with the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS prime lens.

I’m more familiar with the 105mm ƒ/2.8 macro focal length. This lens backs off that slightly while still providing a 1:1 magnification ratio. One advantage is that the lens is physically smaller than the 105mm ƒ/2.8 lenses I’m used to, which is a definite plus, especially for handheld photography (as is the lens’s optical stabilization, or OSS, as Sony calls it).

If you have a Sony mirrorless camera and are looking to do some macro photography, this lens is well worth a look. It’s relatively compact, sharp, fast, and performs well. And it also works well as a fast-ish prime moderate telephoto lens, giving nice blurred background to portrait shots. In other words, it’s much more versatile than the “macro” in its name might suggest.

There was no special setup with these, and they were all shot handheld in natural light. These were all shot on a Sony A1 full-frame camera body. I’m posting them here in case they’re helpful to anyone trying to get a bit of a sense of what this lens is like. The lens can obviously do a lot more than just these types of flower photos, but hopefully, these might be helpful to someone. I’ve included a range of different apertures and shooting distances.

I’ve mostly used quite a light touch in processing these (in Lightroom). I haven’t added any extra sharpening or optical corrections; in a few cases I have retouched to remove some specks of mud splashed up in the rain. You can click on each of the images below to see a full-size version.

Optical Correction Tools

I deliberately haven’t applied extensive corrections to these images. And the general rule of thumb in photography is that it’s better to get the shot right at the time of capture rather than trying to fix it after. That’s a great aspiration, but it’s not always possible to do if you’re bumping up against limitations or flaws in gear, conditions, or technique.

But it’s worth mentioning that there are some excellent tools available to help address common issues with lenses, such as distortion, chromatic aberration, and lens vignetting when editing the images. All-round image processing apps like Lightroom Classic and Capture One have solid tools built in already that often cater to specific lens profiles (or you can make your own).

Some more specialized tools can take it even further. DxO, in particular, sets the gold standard. Their software is built on the foundation of their incredibly deep archive of data from their extensive lab testing of the optical performance of lenses and cameras. But there are some other excellent specialized tools available. These are well worth a look (and have free trials):

  • DxO Pure RAW (for a suite of automatic RAW file corrections enhancement)
  • DxO ViewPoint (correcting for distortion and geometry)
  • Topaz Labs Sharpen AI (in addition to standard unsharp tools, includes focus correction and shake reduction)
