Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* SAL-2470Z review by 3systemuser
Review Date: 11/15/2010 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: super fast SSM, better IQ over all IQ than the Canon and the Nikon 24-70.
Cons: a bit too bulky , a bit too heavy, scratch prone barrel design , poor flare resistance

only one con of it is its poor flare perfromance.


it is the sharpest and best 24-70f2.8 of any kind and it is stabilized.


it is much better corrected than both the Canon and the Nikon 24-70 at 24-35mm range.


it has faster SSM than the Nikon SWM in the 24-70 Nikkor.


it also comes witha good qaultiy metal hood.


I love this lens , it is a very good lens on the A900.


oh almost forgot to write about this , its center resolution is probably exceeding all primes in its range.


and its bokeh at 70mm is creamy , better than many primes actually.


Highly recommended.

Pros: Excellent IQ contrast 3D, all the Zeiss goodies
Cons: Huge, heavy, front extends through zooming, field curvature at WA

Excellent sharpness overall but corners can be sometimes problematic due to field curvature. Curiously there is very little to no curvature beyond 35mm FL. An excellent standard zoom.

Pros: IMHO this lens has slightly better IQ over the Canon version.
Cons: Could be a 2.0 IMHO

The perfect lens for wedding and studio photography! The build feels like a Nasa instrument!
