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.

Tech marches on!

Some of today's lenses are in "wildest dreams" territory if you go back just 10 years. And in another 10 years we'll see even more advancement.
