Switched from Canon to Sony

SEL24105G 04/07/2018 by EmsworthBoy

Retired professional with 50 years experience. Started on %by4 Speed Graphic, the Hasselblad and Canon. Just switched after thirty years from Canon to Sony. Last camera was Canon 5D mk2 with 24-105 lens - now have a Sony A7R ii with 24-105. Really pleased and the lens is better than my Canon. I have done some comparisons and its a great lens that outshines the same Canon focal range.

Brilliant run & gun lens

SEL24105G 14/06/2018 by Jim64

Image quality is far better than expected rivaling many good prime lenses. Paired with Sony's third generation of "7 series" bodies f4 is nothing to worry about and except when I'm looking to separate my subject from the background I leave it on f5.6 for ultra sharp, ultra fast run & gun street shots. f4 at 105mm gives fabulous portraits. Highly recommended.

Excellent Travel Lens

SEL24105G 07/06/2018 by Richard_S

The 24-105 f4 provides both a wide-angle view, to capture grand buildings inside and out, and telephoto reach, to compose portraits and pick out either built or natural landscape details, in one lens. Generally good lenses avoid the transition from truely-wide to usefully long like 24-70s which hardly go beyond normal. Lower quality lenses often offer great range but at a compromise - usually getting soft at the longer focal lengths. To get a decent picture with them means stopping down making the lens useless for isolating the foreground. If you want extreme separation in your headshots this is not the lens, but for contextual portraits where the face is pulled out from the background yet where the background is still recognisable; it is perfect. Every focal length is razor-cut sharp meaning your interiors, landscapes and portraits will all look top-notch. The sharpness at large apertures delivers great separation when you want it. At 24mm it goes just about as wide as you can without needing to use special care over composition. It feels heavy, because the camera and lens together seem physically small, but I have felt no hint of fatigue. A pair of primes would not be much lighter or indeed sharper but would necessitate regular changing. Physically this lens looks smart but not impressive - I think manufacturers who add a coloured ring know what they are doing because an optic like this is not cheap. The zoom takes some effort but is smooth. Vibration is wonderfully damped by the stabilisation although whether I should thank the lens or camera is hard to say. Controls all work fine - though I don't regularly focus manually. Before I bought this, I thought I would suffer the occasional frustration of not having wider or longer reach but to my surprise I rarely do. Maybe I step forward and back a little more without thinking. As I said in the title, this is an absolutely excellent travel lens, a keep-on-your-camera-all-day optic. It is also a superb social lens - for snapping parties and gatherings yet coming home with the most fantastic pictures. I use this lens on an A7 III.

Great run and gun lens

SEL24105G 04/06/2018 by maxmts

Bought the 24-105 a month ago and used it intensively paired with an a7III and an A7II. Very sharp and good overall IQ. TBH I haven't used zoom lenses in 5 years both professionally and for family photos but I am starting to love them again!

Performs very well

SEL24105G 29/04/2018 by JohnED

Focussing performance much better than the A711 kit lens and the increased zoom range is useful. I have not found the additional weight to be an issue. Images are very sharp with good colour balance.

Popular addition to FE range

SEL24105G 06/04/2018 by bazookas

Perhaps a bit bulkier than equivalent lenses for crop-sensor cameras but Sony has tried to keep weight down and it takes superb pin-sharp pictures. A welcome addition to FE range

I have waited a long time for this lens

SEL24105G 10/03/2018 by Stanspur

The 24-105 mm lens was always my every day lens when I was using Minolta cameras. I have had the equivalent for the Sony 6000 and 6500 for some time but the lack of the full frame version was a problem. I purchased the 27-70 CZ lens as a stop gap but was never really happy with it. Now I am very happy this lens is just what I wanted and the performance is superb, I have just spent two weeks in Burma (Myanmar) where 80% of my photos were taken with this lens. I am very happy.

Initially dissapointed

SEL24105G 15/02/2018 by dscobie

The lens is defective with an acknowledged problem affecting a significant number of these lenses (focussing using the AF-S mode under certain conditions). I was able to use in AF-C and it was fantastic. Currently it is away being repaired. I'm sure it will come back soon and all will be well but until then.......

Best travel lens for FF E Mount

SEL24105G 08/02/2018 by Dhina

I waited so long for this 24-105mm zoom. I was using other brand 24-105mm with 3 different adapters but had low light AF issues and doesn't work consistently. Having a lightweight native lens and with better performance is just awesome. Also the smooth bokeh rendering at f4 feels like f2.8. Love this lens. Well worth the wait and money for me. FYI I'm a hobbyist and not a pro.

Well built quality lens with useful range

SEL24105G 16/01/2018

I've only had this just over a week but the early signs are that it is meeting my expectations. I bought it to replace the Zeiss 24-70 F4 lens because I wanted a higher quality lens with a longer reach. From my time with it so far the quality is excellent (images and lens build) and better than its predecessor (although that wasn't a bad lens by any means). Also the switches for AF/MF, image stabilization are a very useful upgrade. Downsides - well it is bigger and heavier but overall I'm glad I changed.
