Anyone got the 24-70 can give their impressions?
Feb 19, 2014

I've read a few reports on the 24-70. They seem to be either its good or good with reservations.

Has anyone gotten one recently and they care to comment about the lens?

I have several legacy lenses and the FE35 2.8 which is very nice but want to replace my Nikon 24-70 F2.8 I was using with a D800e with my A7r and a 24-70 F4.

Am I right in thinking these lenses are roughly equivalent in performance? I was very happy with the Nikon 24-70 but read some posts that it was supposed to be soft in the corners wide open. I never really noticed. I suppose most daytime shots are not shot wide open anyway.

But the 55 gets rave reviews. But its not as versatile and not sure it can provide the flexibility of the 24-70 range plus the OSS which I think is important with the A7r to reduce shake.
