Great Lens for Sony NEX FS-700

  • Excerpt: I use it with the Sony NEX-FS700 camera. This is great for light light situations and testimonials. The pictures come out crisp and it was easy to change. I keep the Alpha mount connected to the lens so it's real easy to get on and off.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Good in low light, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy, Loud Auto Focus, Slow Focus

What...it focused already????

rtrski "Who, me?", Amazon
4 October 2012
  • Summary: Haven't had this for long, and bought a used copy as well (not thru Amazon - sorry guys!). Bought for use with an A55 to replace my current Sigma 17-70mm (the old style, non-HSM motor version) with which I just was underwhelmed due to a slight softness.

Sony SAL2470Z 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens

Dust Monster, Crutchfield
17 November 2011
  • Summary: If you are not a pro photographer, this lens may be overkill, especially for the price. By "pro" I mean a working photographer who gets paid. I have taken this lens on an overseas vacation trip.
  • Pros: The images are excellent throughout the zoom range and aperture range. The typical Carl Zeiss micro contrast gives the images that "pop".
  • Cons: High quality glass will always be heavy and maybe cumbersome, but this is the only negative that comes to mind. Keep in mind that I don't do lab testing on my lenses. This is purely based on viewing my images on screen and also viewing my prints. My reason for 4 stars: price.

beautiful lens

Steve A, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: sharp, fast lens. A little heavy, but image is superb. I got this to use with Sony FS-100 and they have not yet worked out the a-mount to e-mount communication fully, so the iris jumps wide open, then closes as you open up. fine to adjust iris between shots, not while shooting video.

Best suited to FF body

  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy
