First Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens Review: “A superb lens, much better than the Sony Zeiss FE 24-70mm F4”
Marc Alhadeff at Sony Alpha Blog published his full in-depth review of the new Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS lens (tested on Sony a7R II), saying that it is “a superb lens , much better than the Sony FE 24-70mm F4 Zeiss OSS, way above the Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-F6.3“.
Conclusion from Sony Alpha Blog:
The Sony 24-105 F4 was longly awaited by Sony users as a key trans-standard zoom
Sony has delivered a superb lens , much better than the Sony FE 24-70mm F4 Zeiss OSS, way above the Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-F6.3
- The lens is always excellent in the center and corners are just 1 grade below but can always reach the very good grade
- Bokeh is very nice, with beautiful blurry background
- Very good resistance to flare, no CA
- Very nice results in video with nice blurry background
- Construction is very good and lens is equipped with all relevant knobs : button than can be assigned to eye AF, AF/MF switch, Optical stabilisation
- The tradeoff made to sacrifice distorsion (quite important) for sharpness is a good one to my opinion as those will be automatically corrected by a lightroom lens profile very soon
With its correct price tag of 1350 euros, I expect this lens to become the standard high quality zoom lens for A7RIII/A9 if you don’t want to invest in the Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM
Highly recommended !
