Sony FE 70-300mm review at Photozone: “disappointed us a little”

The Sony FE 70-300mm lens got tested by the German guys from Photozone. They are not impressed by this lens performance:

Honestly, the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS disappointed us a little. You are buying such lenses primarily for its potential at the very long end of the range which is where the performance may not be bad but it certainly doesn’t reflect the promises of a G-class lens nor its high price tag. Now that being said – the center quality is still very good at 300mm and that’s where most of the action is at this setting.
The lens is a bit expensive relative to its performance. If you want to have 300mm, you just don’t have another choice at the moment but if you can live with a little less we’d rather recommend the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS instead.

Note: You now have a choice! The 100-400mm GM….but it costs twice as much :(

Sony 18-110mm PZ E-mount lens tested at ePhotozine and Cinema5D

ePhotozine tested the Sony 18-110mm PZ OSS f/4.0 E-mount lens. The conclusion:

This is a lens that crosses the requirements of two worlds of photography, stills and video. It can quite easily be used for both, with the proviso that to do so for stills could be quite an expensive option.
Having said that, it is very well made, very versatile, can be set up to suit the purpose and handles like a dream. Regardless of the price, it has to be Highly Recommended.

Cinema5D also tested the lens and writes:

Whether you’re working in video, cinema or something in-between (as most people do nowadays), I think this lens is really worth a close look. There’s currently no other lens that compares to it in terms of versatility, price and physical design. Furthermore, I found the optical quality achieved in tandem with Sony’s internal electronic solutions and automatic lens compensation to be really impressive.

Sony E PZ 18-110mm is in Stock at Amazon, Adorama., BHphoto and Calumet.de.
