Hi Gustav,

I think that No15, the cat picture is simply stunning.
I certainly draws the viewers attention.
Thank you Gustav.

From your photos, this looks like a fantastic camera. I've toyed around with the idea of purchasing a Nex for times when I don't want to lug around my big boys. I really like the more traditional body of the a3000 and w/the new Zeiss 16-70mm, it should be an outstanding combo. This also just might be the perfect camera for my HS freshman daughter who is really getting into photography. Maybe it's time to upgrade her from the Panasonic Z35 I gave her a couple of years ago.

Thanks for sharing.

The Zeiss 16-80mm alpha mount with the A700 has been my most favorite lens. Super IQ and very usable focal length. I have used the 16-80 with the NEX6 and EA-2, but the size makes it bulky and not IS. If the Zeiss 16-70 E mount has comparable image quality to the 16-80 A, then this will be the NEX lens to own. I have pre-ordered the new 16-70 E. Gustav you have convinced me.
A700, A850, NEX6, Sig 10-20, Sony 16-80Z, Sony E35, E24Z, E16-70Z, E10-18, Tam E18-200, Sig 24, Sig 17-35DG, Sig 50 1.4, Min 50, Tam 24-70 2.8, Tam 90M 2.8, Samyang 14, Min 135, Sony 70-300G

- 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.


Agree! I have even used the NEX 7 together with Sigma´s 150-500, (which is not a small lens) and the EA-2 adapter. For me it´s a very good and useful match. Lately I have used it to document the works with constructing the new under water tunnel in Stockholm for the commuter trains. By the way, it was partly built in steel by you Estonians, before the three over 100m lang tunnel elements (20m wide and 10m high)was towed over the Baltic Sea to Stockholm. Here they finished the works with embedding them in concrete. When taking theese pictures I had to stay 200-400 meters from the very action. This long lens together gave the reach and the NEX the details.

Depends on what you compare to, in relative terms it is slow compared to a constant F/2,8 zoom lens. The zoom range in it self is nothing spectacular nor groundbreaking. If you then consider the price, well some people will have a hard time justifying 1k for it, while some will not.


It IS quite 'Earth-shattering' in that it is the first Zeiss zoom with optical image stabilisation. You can bet that this was the result of significant research and development time. Yes it's slow compared to an f2.8 lens and even slower compared to an f1.4 one, but of course a constant aperture f2.8 16-70mm zoom is an impossibility.

It's also a lot harder to make a constant aperture zoom than a variable aperture one. Couple this with the OSS and 4 aspherical glasses and there's no reason to believe that this isn't a state-of-the-art design easily justifying the price.





Great Sell

I'm glad that this thread and Nex as a whole is getting so much interest. I'm more interested in the lens and pairing it with a possible Nex6. While I like the wifi feature that is paired with the 5T, the lack of viewfinder just drives me away from it. Constant f/4 on a cool zoom range E-mount lens on the other hand, drives me TOWARDS it, lol.

"Moderately fast" being the operative term. It's not a terribly fast zoom and $1,000 is a lot for a "moderately fast" one. Again, if the image quality is outstanding and the build quality is also, it is a fair price. I'm comparing it to the SAL 16-80mm Zeiss which is seriously overpriced in my opinion. Good image quality, but not significantly better, if at all, than the competition such as the Sigma 17-70mm, Tamron 17-50 or the Sony 16-105, and I think the build quality is worse than all of them. Given the price point, it is not a good value IMO.


For a long time the 16-80 was the only lens with such a wide focal range available across all brands. Even now, seven years after it's introduction it is still the fastest available. It is a Zeiss lens built down to cost. There were two compromises made in its design: a bonded aspheric element instead of a moulded one and the use of cheaper-grade industrial plastics in its body.

In a scenario that would probably have the designer pulling their hair out, people have not been grateful that Sony decided to make such a breakthrough product available to a majority of its users by lowering the manufacturing costs and selling price, but complained endlessly that it didn't have a stronger construction. presumably if it had a metal build the complaints would be about the high cost – as they now seem to be about this new lens.
