By pixelpeeping a lot of full size samples posted on the net, this zoom has even better corner sharpness than most of the primes...I'm totally shocked by the consistent sharpness at all frame, at all FL's...This lens is definitely better than GM zoom full frame one. Also colors are punch as hell...A terrific job done by sony.

Had that lens been available 5 years ago, I probably wouldn't have purchased anything FF. I'm quite curious how that lens on an A6600 performs compared to the A7iii / 24-105G combo. For the price, Sony should have included OSS though.

E1655 is clearly better.even the extreme corners are tack sharp, sharper than most of the primes.unbelievably superb lens they looking for a landscape for my a7ii but this lens forces me to switch to apsc.

Wow, that's interesting. I would have thought once you go FF you don't go back. I am just curious, isn't there a G master lens already as sharp in FF that you could get? Are you saying that because of technology, the APC lens is so sharp that even though there are G master lens they don't compare to this one yet? I guess I always thought I wouldn't want to get another lens that is just APC because in the future I most likely will switch over to FF camera.

The images are sharper than the sigma but how much is OSS going to matter on A6400? I still think this out of my budget for now. Thx

There's Gmaster 24-70 2.8 for FF bodies, i tried it, shot a lot of photos at all FLs with different apertures. Results are underwhelming. Except than great center sharpness, mid-frame, extreme corners are just so so...never worth the price they ask for.

However, simply amazed by E16-55 2.8G samples, posted here in dpreview.Just check out A6600 sample shots, a lot of them shot with E16-55 2.8G.
