Sony FE 24-240mm lens review by Jörg Haag. New converters test.

FacebookShare

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-20 um 11.44.31

Let’s read a review that’s not so “positive” about the new FE 24-240mm lens. It has been posted by Jörg Haag (Click here). He posted plenty of image samples and tests and I am only reporting his conclusions here:

My personal verdict on this lens: I am not going to buy it, because:

  1. Superzooms never really work out for me and my way of photography. Actually, I rarely use focal lengths above 100mm when hiking or on travel. When I need those focal lengths it is for special situations like sports, portraiture or wildlife and for this I pack the adequate lenses.
  2. This lens is not really giving me a buzz for the price of a little below 1,000 Euro. Maybe 3 hours is not enough, but we did not build a relationship like I did with other lenses.
  3. I find this lens a little to heavy for a constant use on the A7 and to slow which was clearly showing when using with AF-Tracking on the alpha 6000 (sorry, but I don’t have the release for those pictures).

But – yes, there is one – if you are looking for the perfect allrounder to use on a Sony full-frame mirrorless and you are just starting to build your lens line-up, the FE 24-240mm F3,5-6,3 OSS certainly is a good alternative delivering brilliant image quality throughout the entire focal range. Of course, a superzoom is a trade-off, is a trade-off, is a trade-off.

And DSLRmagazine (google translation here) tested the converters for the 28mm FE lens.
