The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
That's a whole lot of words, without the burden of specifics. I'd love to know about all of these cheaper, better performing zoom lenses.
Meanwhile, we're talking about corner softness at 24mm to not even 28mm, reduced contrast at 65-70mm and a pretty significant distortion profile. That's all you have that makes this such a terrible, unacceptable lens.
That's just horrible - such a crappy result.

Why on earth were you shooting at those ISO's when you did not need to? The quality loss due to that is noticeable.
because it was incredibly dark for most of Friday lunchtime and I believe auto-iso to be the work of the devil?
Not every shot that uses non optimal settings needs to be discarded...
As for the sharpness you do not need to view at 100% to see the issue. It is noticeable and means for some types of photography where the corners are important the lens is unusable as a lot of clients would reject the work or just not bother to use you in the future. If this lens had Sony written on the front and cheaper then it would be acceptable but not at this price or with Zeiss as a brand name on it.
Would you like me to dig out some shots with my nikon 24-70 that demonstrate it has softer corners at certain focal lengths and apertures?
But wait, it's not badged Zeiss, so it gets a free pass on criticism. Not to mention it's price tag...
I think this sets a record for me on camera gear. I ordered the FE 24-70mm F4 OSS and it finally arrived today at 1:15PM. I dropped it back to FedEx at 3:15PM!!
I knew it was a bad idea to pre-order just on expectation. I really got caught up in the positive reviews for the FE35 and FE55 and placed the order site and review unseen. I won't be making that mistake again.
At $1200, this lens should be spot on for the entire focal range, not just from 28-60 and it's not fast enough. Shame because Sony had such a good start with the other 2 Zeiss branded FE lens
From most users owning these as well the reviews, I have realized they are not entirely happy. Of course its not a prime but it makes you realize what a good value the 28-70 kit lens provides.
I am just beginning to use the FE2870 and was considering getting the 24-70 but looks like the 28-70 holds much better value at $400 compared to the $1200 for the 24-70.

When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
