The Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS (SEL2470Z) lens is a wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens that features a constant f/4 maximum aperture. Two full reviews made for the first ever full frame E-mount Carl Zeiss zoom lens.
Photozone and SLRGear reviewed and tested the new Zeiss 24-70mm f/4.0 FE lens which is ideal for portraits, landscapes and everyday shooting. They both say it is a good lens but not satisfied with the performance of the lens. See their conclusions below.
Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS Lens Reviews
From Photozone review :
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. Sony/Zeiss seems to follow the ugly trend of under-designing lenses based on the assumption that digital correction will fix the flaws
From SLRgrear review :
In terms of build quality, the Sony FE 24-70 Zeiss is excellent with an all-metal construction and that characteristic Sony and Zeiss matte black design. When it comes to image quality, however, this particular lens misses the mark. With less-than-stellar performance in sharpness, particularly in the corners at all focal lengths (and even stopped down), plus strong vignetting and distortion, the Sony FE 24-70mm ƒ/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* didn’t meet our expectations.
