Sony G18-105mm Just Touched down from BHphoto

just got the sony G18-105mm for my A7 this morning.

Very impressive Lense.

very lightweight. (looks heavier on print)

nice 72mm front element for light to gather in.

the zoom ring feels like silk

very fast zooming with zoom ring.

the lever on the side is excellent for smooth video.

I attached it to my A7 and its a match made in heaven.

cant believe how light the lens is.

focusing in morning available light inside my house was very good.

i pointed it, and it locked focus in a sec or less.

images look nice and sharp.

i will take it out today and shoot some pretty women and scenery.

SPOILER ALERT: the CIZ (clear image zoom) doesn't work on A7!!!! in any mode (PASM/etc etc)

not even "zoom" mode works.

(i think sony disabled it so you will not have the best of both worlds, with the 70-200mm coming

out and all)

but all in all, i am excited about the possibilites of this lens!

i do have a 55-210mm that i use with my A7, and i am very satisfied in bright light, but

i want something also with a wide angle to mid telephoto zoom.

also i ordered the sigma 19mm 2.8 mini me lens...cute little feller.
