ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sigma 24-105 Art, Olympus OM 135mm, Sigma 17-70 Macro
price paid:£649 (New)
positive:This lens is razor-sharp optics are perfect, The AF is not laser speed but when in locked range it's dead lock-on with eye-af about 95% of the time.

The colours feel rich and natural.

The lens is balanced and feels solid on the A7RIII with a grip
negative:The focus pull/push ring system is okay but easy to forget.
The back Element is open, and there is no gasket.
comment:Makes me want an A7RIV...

I purchased this lens from E-infinity to cut down costs its primary use is in a 35mm slide station to select candidates for drum scanning but this is an excellent event/portrait/macro lens.
