8. Vignetting

Both lenses, although fast and full frame, deal with vignetting well, having the same results within the margin of error.

At the maximum aperture the Minolta’s brightness loss in the frame corners amounts to 39% (-1.42 EV) and the Sony’s result is by 2% higher. Taking into account the fact that the errors in this category reach 1-2% we consider it a draw. There is also a draw by f/2.0 where the Minolta’s light fall-off is 21% and the Sony’s – 22%. The same difference is by f/2.8 where we reach the results at the level of 6-7% so imperceptible in ordinary shots.
