Pros: Sharpness at all focal points, construction, "standard" filter port, performing AF

Cons: Cost of the new, you score easily

Opinion: Excellent lens both from the point of view of optical quality and construction. It also has no problem with the a7r2 or r3's 42mp sensors. Af works very well. The ability to mount filters or screw filter port makes it versatile. As an F4 lens I would have preferred to weigh less but in any case it is not prohibitive, on the contrary, it weighs less than the competition. The cost of the new one I find quite elevated always in relation to the maximum opening of F4. The paint lines up quite easily. In any case, the pros are worth much more than the cons and the optics are definitely a good purchase.

Pros: Use in APS-C: compact, not overly heavy, great sharpness even at the edges (however very "natural" photos), excellent colors and contrast, use 100mm slab filters, fluid ghiere, not exaggerated cost (compared to 16-35 G). Great constriction, gives the idea of robustness. Tropicalization.

Cons: ENDLESS MF stroke (impossible to determine the infinity in night/star filming - you have to resort to digital adjustments in the car ..... and they are in pain)

Opinion: I'm (for now) using the lens in APS-C (on a6400). I would say amazing to every focal and generally to all the most used diaphragms (f.4 to f.11). The chromatic and contrasting rendering is excellent, even in photos at dusk and night. Flare seen only once with "visible" sun in photos. Very sharp throughout the photo (but naturally). Light (or not overly heavy compared to other choices) and compact is ideal for a mountain backpack on trekking. MF night a small "drama" to solve" (see "against"). Ability to use 100mm slab filters is a great advantage of slab size to carry (and cost). Now I'll test the lens in FF (a7RIII) and then update the review

Pros: Excellent construction and optical quality.

Cons: Perhaps the direction of the zoom ring

Opinion: Taken for a few months. Tested for good. Phenomenal lens, unique colors. The weight is right but the construction is exceptional. Zeiss quality all the way. Price more than fair for a lens with unique colors and excellent clarity. The only flaw perhaps a minimum of distortion and a little vignetting. All correctable in post. Excellent anyway. Highly recommended

Pros: Outstanding yield. Being Zeiss optics perfect for all focal lengths.

Cons: I would say none except the cost.

Opinion: Excellent lens I would say for portraits that street or landscapes. rnThe fixed focal length of f / 4 may seem dark, but I assure you that even in low light conditions excellent photos are obtained. Of course, being 16-35 its particular application could be said in landscapes or architectural photos. rnLight aberration of the lens at the edges but nothing that can not be adjusted in post production. I'm using it with great satisfaction on a Sony A7RII body. I'd say it's a great match. I also wait to try the 24-105 version just released.

Pros: Little aberration, light, fast autofocus, construction

Cons: For me no

Opinion: Quest optics, which use on Sony A7m2 and A7s, does not betray the expectations. Compared to Canon 16/35 LII, although it lacks the opening 2.8, it demonstrates a quality of image and constructive in my view of the same level if not higher. The Sony Zeiss optics for native A7 are not many, for the moment, especially in the zoom category but amongst all this and the best. If you consider the focal 16/35 has very little distortion and that very little even crushes to 35, then you zoom to full speed. A 16mm distorts a bit but nothing incorrigible. A 20 is perfect. Working discreetly to f4 and is already at the top at f5.6 Having a maximum aperture of f4 does not have the boken other optics but senz more pleasant and brings out the characteristics of all the Zeiss optics. Color, detail and dynamic range are not those of Serie A which, however, in addition to need adapter ring when mounting on Sony A7, exactly double the coast. There is, in the general quality of the optics, the difference in the price there. Fast and precise autofocus makes the most of the let systemture is Sony a7 that Sony a7s. Robust and light can not be missing in the kit of who clicks with A7.
