The Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 OSS ZA didn't really convince us completely - not at this price point for sure. While it is a joy to use the lens thanks to its high quality finish and super smooth controls, the optical characteristics aren't quite as impressive.
Some very early first impressions: Very solid, well-built lens. And the sharpness factor is definitely there. It would be an overstatement to say that it runs rings around the Zeiss 24-70, but after a few test shots with both lenses, there is a difference, especially at the edges.
I was so worried when I read some reviews about this lens. Let me ease those worries. This thing acts like a prime! The colors! The Sharpness! The Build Quality! All TOP TOP TOP!!! I'm blown away by this lens. Bravo Sony & Zeiss!!
Beautiful colors, Lightweight, Sharp
High quality images, with the typical Zeiss 3D rendering. I love the 24mm end, as it gives a sufficient wide angle. Very versatile on the A7r, where it has been permanently attached since I bought the lens.
It's hard to describe how much I like the A7r - but one of the things that comes with it is that punishing 36MP sensor. I knew in my heart that a mid-level (but premium priced) zoom lens would not be perfect - but my hopes were high.
