Re: Does Sony make an E zoom lens of high quality?

The 18-55 should compare quite well to a Canon 17-40 L, especially given the much lower price and size as well as the addition of OSS. But no, there are no E zoom lenses that compare to top Canon L glass like the 24-70 or APS-C glass like the 17-55.

If you want a better zoom, use an adapter and either Canon L glass or Sony A glass. My guess is Sony recognizes the difficulty in making a small but higher quality zoom. It will be large, heavy, and expensive. At that point you might as well use the 16-50 or A mount Zeiss with an adapter (that's why Sony makes the adapters).
