Splendid lens! Works very well for studio, travel and event photography. Negligible distortion and chromatic aberration for most of the focal length range. Can't find a better lens with these parameters. Optical stabilization does a perfect job.

I can only agree... although I have only the old screw-driven version 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 in Sony a-mount, it is still one of the sharpest lenses in my lineup, at least when shot wide open. Sometimes I wish for some more reach, but apart from that it is an extremely convenient lens for me, as a walk around lens but also for studio product photography.
