Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Overview

Walk around all day with the Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens from Sony, a compact full-frame option that covers wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives for working with a variety of different shooting styles and subjects. A constant f/4 aperture makes operation smooth and consistent throughout the zoom range. The lens further benefits from the use of one extra-low dispersion element and five aspherical elements to combat aberrations as well as a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating to keep flare and ghosting to an absolute minimum. The lens is fast to focus as well due to the linear autofocus motor and an internal focus design. Additionally, the dust- and moisture-resistant lens is equipped with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake, and it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Based on the Zeiss Tessar optical concept, this lens uses a design with 12 elements in ten groups that helps ensure a smaller overall lens size along with reduced flaring, distortion, and chromatic aberrations.
Covering wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives, this compact 24-70mm can quickly become a go-to lens for Sony's full-frame E-mount cameras. It can also be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent zoom range.
A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Five aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

question

is this good for video?
Asked by: Christina
Yes, it has lens stabilization to offset run and gun shakes to keep the image still. Also because it's a zoom, it provides versatility with focal ranges from 24 to 70mm, eliminating the risk of having to keep changing lenses when capturing moments at critical times. It also has a special coating to improve video capture. With video, bokeh is not as important than with photography, so F4 is good enough.

question

How does it compare with Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD? I know the latter is faster. But how about resolutions?
Asked by: Andrew
I had the Tamron FE 28-75 Di III RXD, and now have the Sony 24-70 f4. At similar focal lengths and apertures, sharpness looks the same. The weakest for the Sony is 24mm, where it's soft in the corners. But it's not soft that it bothers me. It's fine. Just not as sharp as its other focal lengths. But then Tamron does not go that wide. I got rid of the Tamron to get this Sony. The size of the Sony just makes it overall better in actual use.
