ownership:I have experience with this lens
compared to:Sigma 35
Sony FE 24-70
Sony FE 16-35
price paid:I lent that lens.
positive:Excellent sharpness, excellent colours, excellent excellent excellent when it comes to optical performance.
negative:Quite large and heavy and the OLED display is a bit too strange to use for me.
comment:I have to admit, that the results of his lens are super convincing. But it is oversized for me, especially as I am not a wideangle guy, the 16-35 will do it for me. The OLED display is not well thought, it's strange to use, I avoided it. Due to this design weakness only 4 points in "build", from a sheer engineering point of view this lens is 5.
