I really love the size, weight, build quality of the 24-70mm. I do wish it was better in the corners for the price. To me it feels a bit like a kit lens, but for the A7R.

Do you know by any chance how it compares to the SEL18200 on a NEX5N?

I'm wondering whether to buy the FE zoom or keep the combo mentioned above, and when I look at the images I take with it, I'm kinda NOT willing to shell over 1000 euro for another zoom and rather invest it on a FE prime.

Here an example (with minor LR adjustments) of this imho sharp lens with an EXCELLENT OSS (check the shutter time for this handheld image at 200mm, crazy ):

SEL18200 on NEX5N at 200mm F6.3 ISO 400 1/40s

Unfortunately from this sample nothing can be told about corner sharpness, gotta check it out, for me it's a non issue since I use the zoom only for non critical work.

I must say that the SEL18200 on the NEX5N is VERY uncomfortable to use and I much prefer to use the A7 with the Minolta AF 28-135 (but the MFD is horrible for indoor use). Still, it's a lens I use a lot.
