I wonder what makes you think that. My answer to the header and to the sentence before last "So I was looking for some real life experience on which lenses give you that "wow" factor." is none, no nex lens gives me the wow factor, and I have the 10-18, 24, 50, 55-210 and the Sigmas 19 and 30. Some Zeiss, even some Canon L lenses gave me the wow factor, not any of the nex.


The OP posted:

  • "... and the improved IQ over my (Olympus APS-C DSLR) E-30.  While the kit lens is adequate, there's no "wow" factor like there is with my Zuiko 50-200 lens or 14-54 lens."

Both Olympus 50-200 and 14-54 lenses are zoom lenses with limited apertures.

If you had read his post, you'd understand that the OP's definition of "WOW" is different from your own.

"Wow" seems pretty vague.  I don't suppose anyone here has really defined it.

Besides, from your own post, you only have some, but not all, of the E-mount lenses, yet your answer covers them all...

If you can't get wowed by the CZ 24, maybe it's time to get another camera system if you think another system will wow you.  Some have posted here that Fuji is aiming at the high-end - maybe try them.

Even if you had replied with "None", but put it in context of your own definition, it would have made sense, but "None (n/t)" sounds as if you just 'shot from the hip' - hence my comment.

As it is, I'm pretty happy with the Nex lenses.  No, the kit lens isn't the best, but it's decent.  Really smooth bokeh and good color make most images look just fine.  What do you want?  More contrast?  More "pop"?  Try Vivid mode (with -1 saturation).
