ownership:I own this lens
compared to:compared to: Sony FE 12-24 G, Sony FE 20mm G, Sony E 16-55 G
price paid:1.399 €
positive:Power zoom mechanism, internal zoom and focusing, weight an size, nice sunstars, lots of controls, weather sealed, very sharp, usefull MFD
negative:Build rating = 4 because no OSS, flare control can be a problem (as with all wide-angle lenses actually), minor softness at the corners
comment:The lack of OSS is not a problem on the A7C and A6600. The most important advantage is the internal function of focusing and zoom in a compact body. The max. magnification of 0.23x leaves room for creativity. For me, the ideal WW-zoom for travel.

Highly recommended for both FF and APS-C!
