Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Overview

A top pick for users looking for a lightweight all-around zoom, the FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens from Sony is a great go-to for full-frame E-mount shooters. The lens uses a variable f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture range in order to achieve light weight and compact size and incorporates one extra-low dispersion element and three aspherical elements to minimize aberrations throughout the range. Also, it has a linear motor and internal focus that enable fast, reliable autofocusing. On top of this, the lens offers built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to combat the effects of camera shake. Additionally, it is dust and moisture resistant and is equipped with a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, this 28-70mm covers a versatile wide-angle to telephoto range. It also works on APS-C format cameras where it provides a 42-105mm equivalent focal length range.
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.
Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
An internal focus mechanism and linear motor contribute to faster, more responsive system and easier handling.
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 be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
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.

Great lens.

Have been a professional wedding and portrait Photographer for over 35 yrs, have been using the 28-70 mm lens for over a year now, I find it very sharp, yes the bench tests may say other wise, but in the real world that means almost nothing, I have compared the 28-70 mm to my other Sony lens, the 90 mm macro, 20 mm wide angle, 24-240 mm zoom, 50 mm 2.5, and I can hardly see any difference, see the Photo taken in my studio, 70 mm, f-11 60 sec.

Good Lens for the price!!!

This lens came with my Sony A7III and I use it quite often for portraits and landscapes, nothing on the side of sports or wildlife. Indoor performance is okay if you have a solid light source and you know how a camera and all of its settings work together. I would recommend for any amateur photographers just getting into the field.

So far so good.

Worst kit lens that I have ever had..

If this is the kit lens that came with my new Sony A7IiI, and I think it is, it is the worst lens I have ever owned and I am not exaggerating. It is unusable for me unless you are in bright lights and standing in front of the object. Wow, I am horrified that I even allowed them to put it on the camera. I was trying to get used to the camera before I purchased another lens. Big mistake.

Very good value when in bundle

It is everything it says it is. Nothing more and nothing less.

Soft Corners At All Settings

I purchased this in late December in a package with the new Sony a7IV because I have no other Sony lenses and wanted to use the camera over the holidays. It focuses accurately and quickly enough for family vacation photos. But on returning home and uploading the photos to computer, the corners and edges were just not nearly sharp enough to meet my minimum standards. I soon acquired Samyang's 35mm f/1.8, and I was able to compare the two lenses. Actually I found there was no comparison. The a7IV is great, and when fitted with the 35mm produces sharp photos across the entire sensor. I sold the Sony 28-70 (at a loss) and do not recommend buying it with the camera. Order one of the other great Sony lenses or top quality third party lenses instead.

Good at 28 f/3.5

I have got some KILLER shots with this lens down in the wider angles of 28 to 40ish. It looks solid for a kit lens, and has helped me get to know my A7iii while I wait to get some beefier zooms. However, I can't say the same for focal lengths closer to 70. The bocah isn't super great, and obviously trying to shoot sports with that much of a increase in aperture across the focal length is far from ideal. However, it's still a good lens to learn the camera with and keep around for more fun/less serious projects, especially at 28mm.
