+1 and the Canon 24-105/4 L IS (choice of many wedding pros) scored lousy

Price:

  • Nikkor: 1600
  • Sony: 1200
  • Canon: 2200

Yep, Sony is slower but also much cheaper.

So why is everyone ganging up on Sony? Sony comes close to the Canon zoom and its half the price.
Seems that many people just love to complain isn't it?

so I don't pay too much attention to these reviews. I prefer to see pictures from the lens' owners.

Also, I note that DXO have not reviewed the other much-maligned lens in this forum----my Zeiss 16-70/4 OSS. I don't care----the IQ is simply outstanding!

Cheers,

José
