Lens Test: Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* ZA SSM AF

 

Expert review by:

Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar 24-70 mm f/2.8 T* SSM

 

image resolution by f/2.8 and at 70 mm focal length could have been better.

Perhaps a comparison between the tested lens and the Canon EF 24-70 mm f/2.8L USM, a lens renowned among the professionals which fared well in our tests, will be a good summary of the Zeiss 24-70 mm f/2.8. It turns out the Zeiss is practically not...

Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM (Sony SAL-2470Z) - Review / Lab Test Report

 

The Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM produced outstanding performance figures in our APS-C test but it's not quite as good when used within its native full format scope. It is, of course, still able of delivering an outstanding center...

Pro quality lens

 

Just fantastic, this lens is extremely impressive. When used with an a65, a77 this lens is king. If you are a pro looking for a good mid zoom lens this is it. I wouldn't recommend it for portrait shots but it is pretty versatile. This is a great choice...

fast 2.8f, fast autofocus for the glass, smooth manual focus ring, large front glass, 72mm filter size, looks good

Tad soft at the edges at 2.8f

Outstanding workhorse

 

I took the plunge with Sony and the A850 & A900 bodies in 2009/10 after decades with Nikon (D2x). As a full-time pro, with 4 kids and being a single income family the D3x was out of my range (due to the financial crash) and I needed 25mp fast for a...

Very tough, sharp, good contrast, good CA control

Solid build, fast AF, beautiful images

 

This is the finest AF zoom lens that I've ever owned. It's heavy, but I use it as my primary lens due to the versatility and quality. I would purchase it again without hesitation. You won't be sorry if you buy this, except if you're climbing Mount...

Amazing

 

I have used this lens for over five months and it rarely leaves my camera. This is a great lens to walk around and take your picture perfect photo. Although this is a zoom lens, the quality of photos is breath taking. The only down side to this lens is...

Great Quality but Costly

 

I bought this lens as an upgrade from the SAL-1680Z, which I gave to my wife. Compared to the 16-80, this lens is slightly sharper, with slightly better color, slightly better flare control, no vignetting, and no distortion (although it's not as wide...

Sharp, rich colors, nice bokeh, tight build, good low-light performance, fast and silent focus

Heavy, costly, large
