ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Other Sony, Sony CZ lenses around the same focal length.
price paid:SEK 13490 ($1636)
positive:Great performance.
Sharp all over, esp. below 105mm.
OSS + IBIS really works on this lens.
Relativt small and light.
negative:Not 100% skarp at 105mm at f4
Little distortion at 24mm, but easy fixed in PP.
Dark corners at 24mm, has to be cropped away, but not by much.
Very little CA, but it's there.
comment:Perfect lens to bring along for almost everything.
Pairs perfectly together with the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G.
Need to test with extension tubes but I believe it will work nice with them.
Did a quickest with 26mm (10+16mm) extension tubes and it works from 35-105mm though below 50mm it gets very close to the front element.
