From DxOmark conclusion:

It might not have the Zeiss badge, but the Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS has good center sharpness throughout the whole zoom range, and that includes the initial aperture where zooms like this are usually poor, and particularly so at the longer end of the range. The downside is that it’s not as well corrected in other areas as the Sony Zeiss E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, with which it is often compared. It still wouldn’t be an easy choice, even taking into account the $400 premium for the Zeiss. However the longer reach of the Sony is attractive, and for video users especially, the power zoom option may just swing it.

It covers a generous 5.8x zoom range from 18mm – 105mm (full frame equivalent 27mm – 157.5mm) and is an ideal choice for travel photography as well as every day, general purpose shooting.

A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and is especially beneficial when working with greater zoom magnifications in low-light conditions.

    I am wondering about the lack of a new a6000! Will IT be a new one ore will it only be some updates and then nothing!? Month after month you you were telling about a new camera in may -15, in juli-15 sept-15 nov 15 and now before chrismas! I had a discussion with a Sony representative and he gave me a smile and Said ” when the new Sony APC will come, IT will be something outstanding”. Its worth waiting for the new Sony, parhaps next year q1 ore q2. Perhaps i will buy the Fuji xt10 instead because i have lost my good feelings about Sony.Fuji is not as good as Sony when you look at the technical abilities such as af, hybride autofokus but Fujis lenses are very good Too and the design much better!
