Reviews Roundup

From The Phoblographer conclusion :

In all rights, this is a fantastic lens. It delivers wonderful image quality, performs well, has a fast autofocus, and will make lots of professional photographers very happy. For the photographers that love zoom lenses, this is another reason to move to the Sony E mount system if you haven’t already.

From The PhotographyBlog conclusion :

Image quality is excellent. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled, bokeh is impressive thanks to the fast f/2.8 aperture and 9-blade circular aperture, and the Nano AR Coating coatings successfully prevent contrast loss attributable to flare. The only real optical issues are some mild corner shading and slight barrel distortion at the 24mm wide-angle focal length, and a drop-off in sharpness at 35mm compared to the other main focal lengths.

From AdmiringLight verdict :

The bottom line is that this lens is exceptional. I’ve never used a standard lens that is this sharp, and the sharpness is outstanding throughout the entire range and at all apertures and all focus distances.  It’s truly remarkable.  Throw in good (but not great) bokeh, outstanding color and contrast and very low CA and you’ve got a standard lens that can truly take the place of a bag full of primes.

The FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM ($1,699.95 – Amazon | B&H | Adorama) features special elements for reducing aberrations and increasing resolution. The standard zoom optic has a 9-bladed aperture, special coatings for reduced reflections. It also comes with a direct drive SSM for fast and quiet focusing.  dust and moisture resistance, and a compact design.

We think that these Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens reviews and tests are helpful if you are deciding to buy or prefer this standard zoom lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras.
