Outstanding!!!
Feb 24, 2014

I absolutely love the sharpness, contrast, color and the bokeh of this lens. It is the perfect range for my NEX-6 not just for travel but portraiture. I spent a lot of time in the long end and it is like getting a prime lens 70mm @ f/4. The most surprising aspect of this lens is the bokeh. Even though it is not a super fast lens, @f/4 it can separate the subject from the background with a tiny bit of 3-D effect. I also shoot with a Canon DSLR system (own the 5DMKIII, 7D and 1DMKIII) and L-lenses like the 24-105/4 L IS. From my observations the Zeiss matches the L pretty well but I think the former has a slight edge in bokeh.

Here are my favourite shots from this lens so far:
