Best A7 Travel/Walk Around Zoom..
Aug 12, 2014

I bought the A7 twice before deciding to keep it, only AFTER I tried it the second time with the Zeiss 24-70 Zoom. The A7 Kit lens was just not up to par like the 18-55 was that came with the Nex 5n or Nex 7.

I read a lot of reviews that said it was a mediocre lens, so maybe I got a good copy.

The colors, contrast and sharpness are much better than I expected. The constant F4 and mid range zoom versatility really make this a good option imho. I have the FE35 also, but use the 24-70 more.

Of course it would be nice to be at least f2.8...but surprisingly at dusk and even going a little later it did a great job. Focus is pretty fast and accurate and the OSS really does make a difference and works well.

Some SOOC shots scaled from 100 to 75 percent all hand held and unprocessed:
