Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS vs Canon EF 16-35mm f4 ISUSM vs Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f4G ED VR


From DxOMark Conclusion :

The addition of stabilization to this ultra-wide zoom was crucial, not only to appeal to that group (in addition to stills photographers) but also to compete with rivals. Both Nikon and Canon already offer a similar lens. While the new Sony Zeiss offering is likely to be popular, it isn’t that much smaller or lighter than those rival models made for DSLRs. Given that it’s more expensive and that is doesn’t convincingly outperform them either is a pity, but hardly unexpected. Lenses like this are a balance of compromises and overall the Sony isn’t likely to disappoint.
