I have been still very happy with E24F18CZ, when using it with NEX-7 and croping even more than up to 3000x2000.

When comparing E24F18CZ and A16-80CZ shots at 24mm (36mm FF), then A16-80CZ has been very close to E24F18CZ at F 5,6 ... F6,3. So it is easy to imagine, that new E16-70CZ pics at 70mm (105mm FF) can probably easily be croped up to 3000x2000 and even more, so in every day use it covers as minimum 16-140mm (24-210mm FF) reach with OSS

Interesting, how good is coming E18-105F4G for still imaging? Hope Gustav will have it, before it is available. So, please Gustav, inform us about your first shots with E18-105G

very great shots! i already have my zoom for this covered (16-50 SSM) but i must say this zeiss has awesome sharpness and contrast, and the size of course is incredible. usually test shots aren't good, but yours are incredible!

A entry level nex in a new form factor at a affordable price. Seems like many people where hoping for more..

The lens is nice for those who want to spend 1k for slow zoom on a NEX camera though.

I have been waiting for a light G/Zeiss quality standard zoom since I got the N7 at the introduction (with the 24/1.8). I would have loved a 2.8 or 2.0 zoom, but my wife would not use it due to the weight (the 16-50 on a LA-1 is already too heavy and large). There is definitely a market for this.
Just wonder about the Zeiss and G introduction, is one FF, what reason do they have for the double overlapping intro with identical aperture.
Then again, nice to their customers, no whining 3 months later about "I wish they would have told me before sinking 1K into a lens"

Gustav, nice shots, you just cost me 1000 :)

Thank you so much Gustav and lovely shots , I think it's a very good idea by Sony making the Nex more appealing to a wider range of potential buyers and with such a low price. What I'm really interested in is it's AF one of the main complaints of the Nex system and because it seems that even the A-mount is going mirror-less I'm very interested to know if you can see real improvements in that department

thanks again

Better than a 'fast' zoom of equal focal length span for a NEX, questionable for the ILC-3000.

Thanks for the pictures ljsvogel.

Did you take #1 in my garden?    I'm happy there is a new toy around, but for the gear addicts there is an extra "problem" now. What i do wonder about, in a wider sense, if this means Sony with APS-C sensors will concentrate more on E-mount from now.

Yes of that there is no doubt, the whole nex concept is about the form factor for people who want smaller and lighter gear.

Yes and my comment stated otherwise ?

For those who want a F/4 zoom for NEX (of high quality) it's without doubt very attractive.

A lot better then using an adapter and putting on a A-mount lens which makes the rig all but pleasurable to handle.

The joys of textual communication :P

Your post seemed a bit ironic but you've now made it clear it wasn't.

NEX-7 with 16-80Zeiss and EA-1 (as example) is not bad to handle, even better with EA-2, and IQ is great. For me little NEX and "big" lens is not problem. But

- 16-80 is designed mainly for AF and MF ring turn from 3m to infinity is only about 3...4 mm; if to count inaccuracy after 5 years 16-80 use, then even less - hard to catch right position for sharpest MF point wide open;

- no in-body stabilisation on existing NEX models.
     
16-70Zeiss comes with OSS (it is great surprise for me), and pleasantly with nearly half of weight and length compared to 16-80 + adapter. Hope MF handling is great as on e-mount 18-55kit and 24F18Zeiss.
