Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G Review by Photographyblog:

The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G is a very good, if pricey, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for Sony A9/A7/A7R II/A7S full-frame cameras. It delivers excellent sharpness in the centre of the frame almost throughout the full aperture and zoom range and also performs very well at the edges of the frame too, although the performance at 24mm isn’t as good as the rest of the zoom range. The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G lens does suffer from some distortion and vignetting, but chromatic aberrations are very well-controlled and it can even create some fairly nice bokeh effects when shooting wide-open at 24mm.

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens Review by SonyAlphaLab:

The images produced by the FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens are optically phenomenal at the end of the day in my opinion. I would not mind having this lens in my stable at all! If I were shooting weddings for example with the Sony A9 or Sony A7r II, I would certainly have this lens mounted most of the time for my style of shooting.

Marc Alhadeff tested the new Tokina 20mm FE lens:

The Borders / corners are clearly less good than the centre wide open and this persist until F4, at F5.6-F8 you get consistent excellent results across the frame
