Pros: Colors, autofocus, build quality

Cons: Sharpness, cost, ease with which painting spoils aesthetically

Opinion: I've owned it for a year, and I think I've known him well. 24-70, classic focal, suitable to do a little bit of everything. A person who chooses to photograph without too much pretension can find himself well with this lens, without having to buy more. The construction is solid, compact, it is there. The only flaw, the paint of the barrel is very delicate, it takes little to scratch it. The important flaws are on the optical side, and the thing is a displeasure. It's not a lens to throw away, absolutely, but let's say I would never have been willing to pay its price as new, which allows you to buy lenses that are perhaps less versatile but of significantly higher optical quality (the 35mm f/1.8 Sony, a 35 or a 50 from Sigma's Art FE series, the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 for Sony, etc.). I think that more than 500 euros for this lens I would not spend them, because it simply does not apply them. For a lens that starts at f/4 the sharpness is insufficient, you have to close too much for a little sharpness to emerge, and this applies mainly to the center of the frame. For some photos sharpness at the edges is not important, but I think it is important to know about this defect before buying the lens. Even the bokeh is not much, not even at 50mm or 70mm, there are better even in lenses that cost half of this. Let's talk about the advantages, there are the beautiful color rendering, the autofocus (in the areas to which this lens is intended does its work) and tropicalization. Summary: If you are looking for a used zoom lens that does a little bit of everything, without much pretension at the optical level, then this lens can do for you, and you will be happy with it. From this year of use I get satisfied on average, but for what I intend to do I think it's time to change my mind, point to 35mm f/1.8 Sony. But if you're a fussy photographer looking for a very sharp shot then spend that money differently, because you might find something better and you might even save yourself a few euros. Overall rating: 7

Pros: Lightness, colors

Cons: Ridiculous sharpness

Opinion: I have been able to try this optics for a while, I can say that it is very compact and light, that the autofocus is very quiet and that does its job very well. It returns very pleasant colors. On the other side, I say that the sharpness to f4 is ridiculous, really little engraved. It's true the price is not very high but with a few hundred euros more there are much better lenses in my opinion.

Pros: Size, weight, AF speed, good sharpness

Cons: Overall non-top optical performance

Opinion: I bought used this lens for 475 euros including transportation and I think at this price it is a good deal. I come from a Zeiss fixed optics kit and the 35-135 Vario Sonnar Zeiss zoom for Contax, which has been used on a Sony A7III fullframe this summer. This objective was purchased to replace the Vario Sonnar in routine use. Compared to its predecessor, it's overwhelmed by weight, lightness and practicality, but it's not comparable in optical quality. The Vario Tessar is a lens that gives excellent colors, good contrast, good sharpness and that becomes very good from the diaphragm 7.1. But anyone who says he's a real Zeiss means he never used these lenses. It is, however, a very good lens to use to capture the moment, the moment, the image then unrepeatable with a very good overall quality and excellent practicality. For slow, reasoned photos, you can get better results with other goals from the cost, however, much higher.

Pros: Construction, Stabilization, Colors, Sharpness, Size and Weight.

Cons: Painting

Opinion: Bought used as new on Amazon at just over 500 euros, it was a significant step up from the 28-70 kit (despite my copy not being so bad in terms of sharpness). The colors are bright and saturated (not turned off as on the 28-70) and the image is really well defined and sharp at all focal points (maybe it loses something at 70mm f4). Good stabilization that allows you to shoot at really slow times (and on my A7 is a nice help). I really like the overall construction and the feeling of robustness of the barrel even if it tends to scratch easily (I pay close attention both in use and in storing it in the backpack). For the rest I am really satisfied with the purchase and the price paid, I would say that the price-performance ratio is from 10.

Pros: Build quality, stabilization, colors, overall image quality

Cons: Weight and delicate painting.

Opinion: I have been using the Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS for a couple of months, purchased used for 450 euros, I must say that I am fully satisfied. You can see right from the start that it is a very well built optics, the barrel is made of metal, the dials are soft and precise. You have the perception of having an object with monolith solidity, it is a solid and pleasant block to use. Right from the start I was impressed by the speed and accuracy of the autofocus. The images are adequately sharp at both 24 and 70 mm, the vignette is very pleasant and still removable without problems in post production. For me the really strong point of this optics is the rendering of colors and the three-dimensionality of the returned image. Before buying the optics in question I did not understand what it meant "Zeiss optics churn out three-dimensional images", I always thought that the color rendering was mainly the task of the sensor but I have to think again. Internal stabilization at the top, very useful for poor light conditions and in video shooting. Rating: 9
