Pros: Colors and weight, and let's put AF speed as well

Cons: Optically insufficient (sharpness practically at a minimum)

Opinion: Tried for a day on A7RIII. I'll be ruthless: if you've had the opportunity to try zeiss optics... this has nothing to do with it! Sharpness is always very unsatisfactory. For heaven's sake... Light optics, nice feeling, very good construction, precise and fast focus ring (depends on how quickly you move it). But then.. you go home, look at the photos, and regret having made them with that lens. Always soft, never engraved and sharp. You save the colors. Which are very pleasant. But woe to look at the photo 100%. In short... a disappointment. It's not a question of cost... and you don't have to compare it to the GM to say it's not sharp. There's simply a lot better in that same price range. Personally I do not recommend it! After trying it (attracted by size and weight) I kept away from it. If you shoot in jpg it goes slightly (but little) better thanks to the corrections in the room. But still nolto below expectations. PS: I reserve the right to update the review after trying another one (when it happens). I would not like to have found a "bugged" (i.e. defective) specimen. But for the test I did with the specimen in my possession I was already generous! In fact, I am amazed by the positive reviews made by other users on Juza... anyway in one way or another I have to take a few hundred more shots with another specimen.

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.
