All I say is what my eyes tell me, and that's FAR more meaningful than any graphs.

On my Z7II or Zfc, the 24-200 is extremely sharp at 24mm and 200mm. I have the 24-70 2.8 S and 70-200 2.8 S, so I think I know what "sharp" is all about.

The 24-200 performs at a level that is fairly shocking. I really didn't believe the hype, took a shot and ordered one for casual use. It has exceeded my expectations.


Oh, I’m not saying it’s not a good lens. All things considered though, I’d expect a 2.8x constant-aperture zoom that’s closed down a bit through most of its range to outperform a smaller, lighter 8.3x variable-aperture zoom that’s half the price.
