positive:As an all-round lens 24-240 hits all the marks.
negative:a bit heavy
comment:I give this 10x zoom lens high marks because it seems unfair to compare this lens to primes or shorter range zooms where it is designed to be and performs very well as a compromise lens.
The 24-240 is the only full frame Sony lens I own and it is mounted on my A7ii ninety percent of the time; only coming off when I need something wider, faster or longer. As a alternative to trucking around a bag full of glass it worked out quite well for me.
