Re: FE 24-70 f/4: Holding me back from going to A7x

I have an A7 with both 24-70 and 16-35 FE zooms.

Agree 16-35 is excellent and definitely better than the 24-70. Having said that the 24-70 is not bad and is the only decent general purpose constant aperture zoom with OSS; for the A7 at least.

The 24-70 is better than the 16-70 I have for the 6000, and that isn't bad either.

If edge to edge quality is important to you then I would go with a prime, otherwise you'll find the 24-70 to be a very useful walk around general purpose lens. ( I got rid of the 28-70 I originally had but some say that's not bad either, but the 24-70 was visibly better for me.)

Hope it helps

Ray
