Westfield Sydney is a shopping centre that straddles a number of formerly independent shopping centres, including Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Imperial Arcade, Mid City Centre, Skygarden and part of the Grace Bros Department Store (now Myer) building. It was extensively renovated in the early 2010s.
This is another good opportunity is how how well the lens captures architecture lines and perspectives, as well as colour and detail in relatively low light scenarios.
The lens performed quite well, and I was really pleased with the colour rendering and overall balance. It is also good at reproducing straight architecture lines with minimal optical distortion.
