Sharpest Zoom Lens on Sony A + E mounts and Adapter compatibility

Hello all,

My original thread is posted here.

Feel free to read it to get an idea of my concerns, but in this post i would like to clarify/ get your reports - personal experiences on two points:

1) How's the compatibility (in general and AF performance) with the la-ea2,3,4 , mc-11 adapters and the A-mount, Sigma lenses.

2) Whats the sharpest all-around zoom lens for aps-c in A/E mounts in your opinion?

I have gathered a list according to dxo ratings and current price tags in my area (Greece).

Do you think dxo ratings are accurate enough as a buying advice?

My List (with some zoom-only as they are rare in e-mount):

A-mount + LA-EA3 at 130E

SonyT* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM II SharpScore 19 Price 1830E

Sony DT 18-70mm F3.5-5.6 SharpScore 16 Price 230E

Sony DT 55-200mm F4-5.6 SAMSharpScore 15 Price 250E

Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G SSM SharpScore 15 Price 990E

Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM SharpScore 15 Price 650E

Sony DT 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 SharpScore 10 Price 470E

Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 SharpScore 9 Price 470E

Sony DT 18-135mm f/3.5 SharpScore 9 Price 500E

E- Mount list

Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 SharpScore 9 Price 500E

Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 SharpScore 8 Price 870E

Sony E18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 SharpScore 8 Price 670E

Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 f/3.5-5.6 SharpScore 6 Price 150E

All prices are in Euro and in the same levels with dollars which should give you clear differences in price points ...

**Try to keep your reports a bit organised for easy future reviews!
