Opinion:On two specimens that I tried the stabilizer corrects well but always remains an annoying residual move visible in the videos, in other words "takes away the bulk" of the movements by hand, but something micro remains. Another problem, but you can not get around, even if there are internal and LR profiles that correct the distortion, iIN GRANDANGOLO and at medium and short distances this is not enough. The result is too elongated subjects at the edges. Beautiful colors (typical sony but this one has a beautiful complexion and is above the average of G), nice bokeh when used in canvases. Absolutely versatile. Impeccable construction, suitable for intensive and professional use. Is it worth 1000 euros and passes what it costs? If you have to take advantage of it, you probably will.
Pros:Great all-rounder, thrust and effective tropicalization, selectors stabilizing and af on goal, sharp with good resistance to the flare.
Cons:Zoom ghiera too rigid and with long range, lens size at 105mm exaggerated, distortion at 24mm high (very small in PS), at 24mm the size of the possible screw filter must be contained anltritis invade the framed field losing mm.
Opinion:The lens is all to do that covers a lot of needs and that is in fact what for practicality you always carry with you. I was impressed by its tropicalization, 30 minutes of rain pushing mixed snow and thermal jump in the car without any particular consequences. Autofocus fast and very precise to all focal and blurry appreciable at 105mm for portraits. Sharp and with good resistance to flare, ok colors without praise. To be used is cumbersome and rigid in the variation of the focal, probably due to the thrust tropicalization, a problem that is amplified by the size of the Body A7 that do not offer the right support compared to the action that is done on the target. It would be useful to have an additional grip on the machine body. At 24 mm you can only mount a screw filter and small size otherwise it invades the image.
Opinion:I am very happy with this slow, sharp and well built. the distortion is very limited to all focal lengths, the af is very quiet and very fast. it's worth everything it costs, even more. too bad just for its size, which in my opinion worsens a bit the compactness of Sony's ML system. In conclusion, a view that I would buy again tomorrow!
Pros:Great all-rounder, well built, tropicalized, robust, good focal excursion, excellent AF
Cons:Plastic lampshade, lens not very light and still overpriced
Opinion:I use it with an A7RIV and I almost always get good results. The minimum diaphragm is not a problem because the stabilization is great. It is an irreplaceable travel companion, without serious defects. I just vignette a little bit. It suffers a bit of flare and it is better to avoid the extreme backlit, but this is something that applies with every zoom
Pros:Sharpness, focal excursion, 9-blade diaphragm, tropicalized, not very heavy
Cons:nothing if it is used for the purposes for which it was designed (travel-reportage)... if then with this lens you make other specific genres like macros then...
Opinion:Anyone who has spoken ill of this lens that I have been using for more than a year, or has never tried it thoroughly or has had a faulty copy in hand. To be an F4 excels in almost everything... In my opinion, it's one of Sony's best-successful lenses. Great for those who travel a lot and don't want to carry an arsenal... Along with this lens in fact, it is enough only a wide angle possibly bright as the 16-35 F2.8 GMaster and you are covered for 95% of travel photos. Also great for reporting in general. In short, I would change it only and exclusively for the new Sigma 24-70 f2.8 FE but I already know that I would probably regret it... I'll think about it... Over-recommended to all those who want high quality and do not want too many pounds on their shoulders when they are traveling... those 35mm more than a 24-70 really make a difference...
