There are many opinions starting to form of this lens and I am so surprised that people expect this to be a wonder lens! yes it's not cheap but it's still a zoom lens and zooms are a compromise.

So if you expect tack sharp images accross the frame at large apertures then you may be disappointed!

This lens is versatile and will give you much sharper images than the kit lens especially in the corners but don't expect it to give you prime performance.

At £1049 it's good value when you compare with Canon and Nikon but just dont expect a new level of performance.


You can apply what you said to every single lens from every single manufacturer...

I tried the 24-70 f2.8 on the A7R and I'm so gratefully surprised of its quality -until then, I was using legacy lenses, Minolta MD/MC primes, that are OK, but not as clear as the Sony/Zeiss. Adorama Rentals will have the FE lens available soon, that I'm planning to get and try before I decide to buy it.
