There does seem to be great variation in published photos from both lenses which is worrying. The pics shown seem to suggest that the standard kit is deliberately poor in order to drive people to buy the more expensive Zeiss-Sony.

Oh there are duff copies out there, just like Canon's lenses.

I've owned two 24-70/4 lenses. The first was one a Japanese import from ebay, first batch available in Japan. It was soft and decentered on the right of the frame.

my second was a UK lens, part of the delayed european release.

This one is perfect and very very sharp, with very acceptable corners even at 24mm

I got mine too from sony( new batch) just now.  took a few test photos on 24mm, F/11 today and it seems pretty darn sharp i, even the corners too, will test it outside when the weather clears

Photography for me is not about recreating what i saw through
the viewfinder but to show people the way i want to see the world
