positive:One of the best performing zooms ever, small and light and great image quality. Still works well on full frame 14-16mm
negative:Nothing, It seemed expensive at first, but unlike some Sony zoom lenses, even Zeiss badged ones it really delivers.
comment:I love this lens, really good on my NEX7 and also works really well on my full frame Sony A7R. Excellent for landscape work and travelling light.
