Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A popular pick for professionals using full-frame A-mount cameras, the Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Lens from Sony covers many of the most commonly used focal lengths in its wide-angle to short telephoto range, which make this optic an outstanding option for photographers working quickly in a variety of shooting situations. Offering a constant f/2.8 aperture, shooters will enjoy consistent exposure throughout the zoom range. Also, the lens design incorporates two aspherical elements to combat aberrations and uses the Zeiss T* coating to effectively eliminate flare.

Operation is smooth and fast with an enhanced Super Sonic wave Motor (SSM) AF system, as well as a focus hold button and focus mode switch for intuitive control. Assisting with focus speed is an internal focus design for faster performance and reaching a minimum focus distance of 11". Additionally, it has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction and a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Based on the Zeiss Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with 17 elements in 13 groups that helps create a relatively compact wide-angle zoom with improved contrast, a resistance to flare, and with minimal distortion and chromatic aberrations.
A standard-length zoom designed for full-frame A-mount cameras, the 24-70mm can also be used on APS-C camera systems where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent focal length.
A constant f/2.8 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.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
An SSM autofocus system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control.
A focus hold button and focus mode switch are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

    Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 reviews

    Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I've tried a few lenses from the sigma 24-105mm, which was great, to a prime 50mm. I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money. This lens is great! Very quiet and fast when wide open at 2.8. I'm finding that I leave this lens on most of the time. Great Bokeh as well. Some may say that's its a bit heavy but that goes without saying because of the build quality with 17/13 elements and groups. You won't be disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing Results Compared To The Old Version I started shooting with Sony SLR's a few years ago when they came out with the original A77 & I paired it with the original Zeiss 24-70mm SSM. I loved the perfect color balance with close up faces & group shots, they were all keepers every time! I instantly upgraded to the A77 Mark II when it came out & was even further blown away. Now Zeiss upgrades the original glass to ZA SSM II and adds some fantastic features. The processors inside this lens are set up to read & work with the new mirror-less SLR's & the only one out there right now is the A77 Mark II. It focuses very, very fast, much faster than the old lens, reads the contrast details dead on and shoots silent video. You can feel the difference the weather seals make and hoiw the zoom ring rotates. The proof is in the image. So far this lens works best only on the A77 Mark II A-Mount. Its the only camera Sony has out there that can actually benefit from this lens, you also must get the newest firmware update from Sony to be completely in sync & then just let this combo show you what it can do. I am convinced that Sony based all of it's newest mirror-less cameras on the technology that started in the A77. With the upcoming addition of the new A99 Mark II A Mount, the combo will provide the most amazing results when using this lens. My Canon EOS 5D Mark III with L glass spends more time in the bag then this APS-C camera with this new lens. I cant wait to see what this lens can do on the new A mount when it comes out later on this year. See attached pics taken with this Newest Zeiss 24-70 ZA SSM II lens, no corrections in photoshop were made other than a slight bump in contrast. If your serious about your image this lens will deliver especially with the A77 Mark II and all the new A Mounts coming in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade. Right away I can see the difference in the new Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II. The focus is superfast and image quality is much improved with the coating applied to the lens,

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid due to reliability. A Ziess lens like this you'd expect to be built well to last. Yet, mine (and many others if you search) the front of the lens to becomes lose after just a few years of use. With some, the lens will get stuck and unable to zoom. Mine has never been dropped or abused, yet this has become a problem. The worst part: Sony wants $1400 to fix it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony A mount 24-70 f2.8 I use this with my A7RII and A&SII with an A to E mount adapter. I find the image quality to be excellent - on par with a similar Nikon lens I used with my D810 before switching to mirrorless. The lens is heavy (same as the Nikon) and I do hope they can make a similar quality, but smaller version to go with the smaller form factor of the E mount cameras.This is a great walking around lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and versatile I have only been using this lense for a short time and have only taken several hundred photographs on my Sony a99ii. I found this lens to be very sharp, the zoom range is very usable and had a feeling of a very professional lens -- quick focus and quiet. This will be my number one go-to lens for most purposes. Also, 50-70mm range is excellent for portraits.
