ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony 24-240mm
Sony 24-105mm f4
price paid:£899 (new)
positive:Sharp lens especially on a 24mp body.
Fast aperture through a good range of the zoom focal lengths
Good AF, with flare and distortion reasonably well controlled (in fact for this kind of a lens its very good!)
Its compromise is very obvious, nothing hidden and horrendous like other superzooms (look in negatives below)
negative:Only 28mm start but I suppose that keeps the lens compact and optical formula simpler to make this lens sharp at the range I does provide.
Rendering especially sunstars and bokeh not the best.
No OSS
comment:This is a very viable alternative to the 24-105mm f4 G which is actually you a rather sharp lens through the zoom range. What you lose in reach on the wide end you make up for in reach at the long end and also a stop more light at 28mm. The results from this lens does give more resolution than just cropping results out of 24-105mm, so that is a pretty good result overall.

Sony 24-105mm does render more nicely and sunstars are very nice in comparison.

the Sony 24-240mm isn't really a serious contender when it comes to IQ.

ownership:I own this lens
compared to:FE CZ 24-70/4
price paid:799 Euro
positive:Small, light, 67 mm filter thread, sharp for a superzoom-especially the corners (sharper corners than the FE 24-70/4 CZ, but center sharpness is a tad lower), keeps bright aperture while zooming in (f4.0 @ 70 mm, f4.5 @ 105 mm)
negative:Some (barrel) distortion at middle focal length that does not get corrected fully with the built in profile
comment:Great "one size fits all" zoomlens of modest size and good quality. Keeping bright apertures far into the zoom range (see positives above) Starting at 28 mm is probably the compromise made in the lens design that allows the small size and excellent optical quality.

ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Tamron 28-75mm
price paid:700 USD new
positive:Great zoom range
Surprisingly sharp
Small and light
Fast at 28mm
67mm filter size
negative:No image stabilization
comment:Bought this lens as an all around travel lens when I want to minimize changing lenses. It is almost as sharp as the similarly sized Tamron 28-75. Quite a feat. Perfect compliment for the Tamron 17-28mm f2.8. May end up selling the 28-75.....
