Not happy with the Sony 16-80ZA
3 months ago

I just got the news that my Sony DT 16-80mm F3.5-4.5 ZA Carl Zeiss lens will cost $750.00 to get fixed. With a new one in the $900 range I will not be getting it fixed nor will I be replacing it with another Sony. Tamron offers a 4 year warranty and a three day turn around on repairs. I loved the image quality of the 16-80 but the build it not good. The lens quit on me wit a little over three years of use. Also looking at a Sigma. The truth be known I will miss this little lens but it is just not durable.
