Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar 16-35 mm f/2.8 T* SSM

 

weaker frame edge performance at maximum aperture,, high full frame chromatic aberration at 16 mm,, very high coma in full frame corners,, huge vignetting on full frame.

Sony/Zeiss 16-35 mm is not a faultless lens, although its price is very high. Would it be possible to manufacture an optically better instrument? I think so, but it would certainly entail bigger dimensions and weight, more particularly the diameter of...

Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA SSM ( Sony SAL-1635Z ) - Full Format Review / Test Report

 

The Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA SSM didn't quite deliver as harmonious results as in the corresponding APS-C test but some aspects remain impressive. This is especially true for the resolution figures at 16mm which are easily among the best...

An excellent zoom.

 

This is an excellent lens that has excellent contrast and sharpness throughout it's usable range. It is so good that it has replaces three of my fixed focal length primes. Yes it is quite heavy and the adaptor required for use on my A7R makes it even...

Simply magnificient

 

I bought this as I wanted a full frame wide angle zoom to compliment my sony/zeiss 24-70 zoom which to my mind is the best in class likewise for the 16-35 from f4 to f16 it's as good as my Minolta prime lenses. At f2.8 it does fall off at the edges,...
