Re: Video review in Japanese.

Really not sure why there arent any reviews around, considering that the lens is supposed to be released in a few days.

Here is a YouTube review in Japanese. The useful part is that they show 100% in center and corners.

My take is that 18mm is good at f8, 50mm is good all round, 100mm seems best at f8 and 300mm seems ok at f8. These superzooms are usually good in the center at wide aperture, better at f8, and give decent sharpness across the frame at f8.

If that is a reasonable trade-off, then it should be a workable versatile lens.


Thanks for sharing Mario. Lens looks very promising for sure. Looking at my 27 inch monitor the pics are sharp. I'm definitely interested in this almost all in one (I wish it started at 16mm though like 16-240mm) lens. It'll be great for travel for sure. It might be even a decent lens for sports in daylight outdoors.
