Well, the 42mp sensor wasn't easy even for this beauty of a beast

   Good review of a good solid lens,

 

   Could have been a little sharper at the edges but Sony sure know how to step up to the plate when it comes to delivering more or less what they promised. 

 Pro Sony FF mirror-less users don't seem to be in the least bit bothered about lens sizes, it's all about having the best and highest resolution (almost) sensor. This is a case of getting what you pay for.

I hate to be the wet towel, the obnoxious editor, but... the verdict has the lines:

 

Optical Quality (at 50 megapixels): Not provided at this stage   
Optical Quality (at 21 megapixels): (3 stars)
 
I'm sure you need to correct this. :) (BTW, 3 optical stars seems a tad low for this lens, but it may be just me).

To be quite honest Klaus your English is better than that of many first language English people and your writing style is right up there!

Proofreading is not about how good one's language is, but how attentive to typos, missing words and missing sense. I hardly ever detect my mistakes wight after making them - and I earn money with writing technical texts.  <_< To avoid some brain performances of "Autocorrection" "Autocompletion" it's worth to read from right to left and from down to up. But even then I give the texts to my colleague and read his.

Well, not sure that's going to happen soon (we haven't discussed it internally so far though). However, if I had to choose a high res system for myself (and if Nikon doesn't come up with a higher res body this year I might have to), the Fuji could be tempting.

Haha... Sorry, I've been working as an editor far too long. :) For most of that time, I've been collecting funny typos and errors in word usage made by myself and my gang. :)

Let me know if you do decide to switch to GFX, I may have an idea on how to get you one for a more reasonable price ;)

Apparently, you got it all wrong. Should've said it's the best lens ever.

Then there is the comment about PZ, specifically Klaus, being biased against Sony <ROFL>.

 

Kind regards, Wim

When LensRentals tests a lens, it's "oh you can't put 10 lenses on a testing bench, you have to do real photography". When Photozone does it, it's "they got a single bad copy and now giving the lens a bad name".

Now they'll say that instead of admitting your mistake, you added more values that humiliate the glorious Sony GM lens that is the best 24-70mm lens ever made by anyone.

You can't change reality. numbers are numbers.

That's what makes photozone such an unbiased and reliable source.

Once again thanks Klaus for the excellent effort.

I would always be careful what I measure. Astrology and economics use numbers too. ;-)

 

Actually I don't understand the fuzz, the review was quite positive. It's a quite usable lens with some drawbacks but nothing you cannot work around.

You don't want to say, they're not accurate? All the horoscopes I read are precise, it depends just from the view you take.
