Re: Sony Zeiss 24-70mm f/4 - Worth Buying Cheap?

I've had my 24-70 f4 for several years.  I've carefully tested it and it's a fine lens.  Somehow it got off on the wrong foot with someone panning it's corner resolution.  But corners rarely matter, especially at larger apertures we deliberately want the corners blurry.

In addition to sharp images, it weighs only about 430 grams and has OSS.

For walk-around, you might also enjoy the 28-60, which weighs only 167 grams and is sharp.  But it lacks OSS.
