|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||SEL2470GM, SEL24240, SEL2870|
|price paid:||1330 euro new|
|positive:||Good performance, very versatile|
Sharp from f.4
OSS works great
Small and light vs 2470GM, SEL24240
|negative:||f.4 and price|
Some distortions and CA at the long end
|comment:||Fast, superb colors and contrast, optical stabilization works impeccably.|
Although it is only f4 has a decent bokeh (portraits between 70-90 mm are superb).
Compared to SEL2870 or SEL24240 is much better all around.
Compared to the 2470GM is a hard choice, I'm clearly giving up to GM during the day, its heavier, smaller zoom , at night the f2.8 is better but the lack of OSS makes me miss some shots at speeds lower then 1/50, wit 24105G I made clear pictures at speeds of 1/20-1/15.
In conclusion, if you buy your first lens and dont want to spend a lot of money this is the choice, also if you travel light this lens can be all you need.
