(From Sony lens literature) The Sony SEL2870 mid-range zoom lens provides an outstanding introduction to full-frame imaging in a light, compact package. It will be paired as the kit lens for the new full-frame A7 camera.
The versatile lens features Optical SteadyShot and an advanced optical design with three aspherical elements and one ED glass element, which minimizes aberration and also minimizes size and weight for easier portability. It is also dust- and moisture-resistant, making it an idea travel companion for Sony’s new full-frame E-mount cameras.
Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS SEL2870 User Reviews
4 out of 10 points and not recommended by cali4nia (9 reviews)light, cheapslow, optically poor
This lens is at best mediocre. At the short end it's very good in the center, but moving to the edges and it becomes very soft. At the long end it's just soft everywhere, need to be closed to f/8 to be usable. The only place where it's good is around 40-50mm.reviewed April 10th, 2016
Using this lens on any A7x cameras is a waste of megapixels.
8 out of 10 points and recommended by coma (22 reviews)better than the 24-70still not really good
The lens is ok. (not tack sharp, but okay. Everything else is average too)reviewed December 7th, 2015
At first I didn't get, why to go for such a slow lens with a full frame camera, but once I tried the subpar 24-70 I realised, it's the only acceptable option.
Sony really has a standard zoom problem with their FE mount.
8 out of 10 points and recommended by zoro02 (4 reviews)Light, OS, good kit lens with good focal rangeNot tack sharp, what bokeh?
Simply a very good kit lens. Can't complain. Does get good image but I would not consider it tack sharp but not soft.reviewed April 17th, 2015 (purchased for $250)
I keep this rather than spending on Zeiss 24-70 F4 for travelling.
8 out of 10 points and recommended by nippa (3 reviews)Light stabilised and sealed with good resolution and nice bokehHigh quality plastic
Given reviews that I'd read I thought that I'd be changing this for the Zeiss equivalent but not so.reviewed September 28th, 2014
At its worst setting at 70mm the edges are soft wide open but stopped down to F8 all is well again.
Perhaps the best kit lens I've seen since the LUMIX 14-45.
Look forward to the formal testing where a comparison within the fancy Zeiss should prove interesting
