The FE24-70 is as good as the best canon F4Ls and a damn sight better than any of the F4 and slower Nikon 24-XX/XXX zooms and the old canon 24-70L F2,8 Mk1 - I`ve pixel peeped it on a 36Mp A7R wideopen and it`d take the Nikon 24-70 F2.8 or the canon 24-70L F2.8 Mk2 to beat it (or the 24-105L to match it) even at the edges, of course the Oly 12-40 F2.8 beats it to a pulp but not suprising given that large lenses for tiny sensors are far easier to make

This makes the lens IMO fully usable as a working pro lens (as the 24-105L is)

What the FE24-70 is NOT is a stellar lens capable of matching the best F2.8 stuff (canon 24-70L Mk1 and Olympus 12-40 mainly) or worthy of the Zeiss Label . it`s not the worst lens bearing that label by any means, Sony have stuck it on some right coke bottles over the years ..
