Product Description

Sony Camera Lenses SEL2470Z This compact full-frame Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens covers a 24mm to 70mm range with a constant maximum aperture of F4, enabling consistent exposure settings at any focal length. This premium lens delivers superlative image quality with full-frame and APS-C E-mount cameras, and dust/moisture resistance means consistently reliable performance. When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result. As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration. Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped “aspherical” elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight. Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements are an evolved variant, featuring an extremely high thickness ratio between the center and periphery. AA elements are exceedingly difficult to produce, relying on the most advanced molding technology to consistently and precisely achieve the required shape and surface accuracy, resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality. Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss - and this superb lens features the Carl Zeiss T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. Not simply applied to any lens - the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality. Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur. The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high-end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high-quality movies as well as stills. Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter. 2013 Sony Electronics All rights reserved.

This premium lens delivers superlative image quality with full-frame and APS-C E-mount cameras, and dust/moisture resistance means consistently reliable performance.

Technology

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass

As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration.

Aspherical lens elements

Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight.

I primarily use this lens for event photography on a Sony A7S.

The material quality is nice. It''s a class act on a Sony A7 series camera. I would not say this lens is built like a tank, but rather built to a reasonably high quality while trying to be a small, light lens.

In terms of size, this lens is very nicely sized for a Sony a7 series camera. It feels well balanced in hand. When I rest the camera and lens on my chest (when I''m writing down info about people I''ve just photo''d), and a flash attached, it has a little tendency to flop forward. I have an inexpensive 2 battery grip I might attach to remedy this, or I might not, it''s not much of an issue.

In comparison to a full frame mirror''d lens, this lens is small and light. I think the price on it is reasonable considering it''s a 24-70 lens with stabilization.

Some people worry about the image quality or the f/4 max aperture. I would say the image quality is "very adequate". When I use this lens for semi professional purposes, I don''t feel like I''m wanting more. Does it compare to a $2,000 f/2.8 full frame lens? I would say no, the colors and contrast aren''t quite there, but not off by much, certainly not enough to pay twice the price for a small gain in image quality or one extra stop of light. But then again, the price, weight and size of this lens is half. So, you get what you pay for.

Is the f/4 a problem? Not really. F2.8 is nice to have, but the depth of field can be so narrow it can cause problems with group shots. So I shoot this lens wide open at f/4 without running into focusing or depth of field problems.

Some people might wonder if this lens has distortion problems. I haven''t noticed any, and seldom correct the lens for distortion in lightroom.

Using this lens and the Sony A7S, I have found that I don''t need to correct the photos at all in lightroom. With my previous Canon setup, I was always having to tweek the white balance, move several sliders around, minimize noise etc. With this camera / lens combo, I crop a little and that''s it. Everything is perfect coming off this sensor. When I''m using flash, about 1 in 10 shots I might have to tweek the exposure level a little, to compensate for the flash. I have heard other reviewers say that same thing, but until I experienced it with the A7S and this lens combo, I would not have believed it . Great job Sony!

In terms of lens stabilization, I don''t really notice it lol (it is enabled). Maybe that''s a good thing.

So, I think this is a very good lens, and works well. Is it worth the extra $$$''s to buy the f/2.8 heavier lens? For me, no. Would I purchase this lens new or used? Yes, I would recommend it. It''s fits the A7r series well and does a very adequate job for amateur, semi-professional and some professional use.

Don''t be worried, this lens is a good one to buy. You don''t need to succumb to needless f/2.8 envy. lol.

First let me say that I am a professional photographer that needs tack sharp images. I purchased this lens to use in low profile street stock photography and for landscapes on extra long hikes as it is much lighter than the 24-70 f2.8 GM. I know it is reviewed as being soft wide open and soft at 24mm on the edges. My copy was not sharp at at any focal length in anything but studio light and then at f13 from about 28-70mm. In blue and golden hour for landscapes, even at f13 the dynamic range was so bad, I could not get any quality shots. I just got back from a long weekend to Shenandoah National Park. All shots with this lens were way too soft for pro work and went straight to the pixel afterlife. I ended up using my Canon 24-70 L II with a metabones for almost all of the trip. I really wanted this lens to work as it would have filled a missing void in the Sony lineup. Alas, I just sent it back. Thank you to Amazon for such a customer friendly return policy. I always buy all my pro gear from Amazon.

The image is a 100% crop at f11 1/80th on a tripod. Focus on the tree.

A year ago, when I sold everything I owned with the word, "Nikon" on it and outfitted with Sony equipment, I included the G Master f2.8 24-70mm. One of my most important reasons for the changeover, was the smaller and lighter nature of the Sony equipment, and I eventually realized the size and weight penalt I was paying for the G Master 24-70mm. This became especially obvious after I had opted for the Zeiss Vario version of the 16-35mm and found it to be an absolutely excellent lens, but cheaper to buy and easier to carry around. So, eventually, I sold my G Master 24-70mm on Amazon, ordered the Ziess Vario version and am completely satisfied with it. I realize I''ve given up an f-stop in the switchover, but in my photography that really isn''t an issue. Sooo, I would say if that f-stop is important to you, get out your credit card and so some upper-arm strength training. Otherwise, go with the Ziess Vario. You won''t be sorry.

I''ve had this lens for almost a year now. It''s a mixed bag, but as long as you understand it''s strengths and weaknesses, and use it accordingly, then it''s a great general purpose walk around lens.

Here''s the deal. It''s sharp in the center at all apertures (except f22) and focal lengths, and between 30-60, it''s sharp corner to corner and edge to edge, at all apertures (except f22) and focal lengths. So, when I''m shooting scenery, or people, and I know I want it sharp all across the frame, I try to keep it those middle focal lengths.

At 24mm, it''s still a great lens, and I shoot at that focal length a LOT, but I know that corners will have a bit of softness. Same thing at 70mm, a bit of corner softness. But it''s makes up for it by being able to focus fairly close at 70mm, giving me the ability to do some nice close up work.

I think the biggest problem that folks have with this lens is the price. Most feel that for $1200 it should be a bit better in the corners at 24mm and 70mm. I got mine used, so I feel like I got what I paid for. It''s been an outstanding lens, and I much prefer it to using a bag full of prime lenses.

Happy shooting!~

Very happy with the design and the feel of the lens. It balances well on my Crane Plus. The only issue is that is not not a very sharp lens across the frame. Many parts are very sharp, if you take large megapixel photos you can always shoot with this lens and crop. I wanted something that would be good for landscape and street shooting. I loved the weight, but the lack of controls, no aperture control, no MF/AF switch, etc.

I am leaving this just so others just starting on their Sony/Zeiss Journey. I decided to go with Zeiss Loxia lenses partnered with my a7rii. I suggest buying them used, but new or used they are incredibly well received and built. They transfer data to the camera, very strange for a lens manufacturer to make manual lenses that rival Leica for modern day mirrorless cameras. The differences between Zeiss/Sony Lenses and Zeiss Lenses is that Zeiss makes lenses to last forever, Sony designs products. I would trust a fully Zeiss lens, it is metal internal and external and the image quality is vastly superior.

Excellent lens with beautiful color rendition, excellent contrast and handling of flare, near perfect stabilization and very good center sharpness. Nice bokeh in my opinion - some disagree.
Can be a bit smudgy in the corners but only a problem if wife open at f4. I use a speed light so I don’t often need to shoot at f4 except for when I’m trying to get separation and bokehlicious portraits - 70mm at f5.6 works fine too.
Most people ding this lens because, for the price, you expect excellent corner sharpness. I kind of agree - I just don’t really care: I would if I were a professional who depended on this for my income.
I don’t miss the f2.8 because
1) once I hit 50mm or longer, f4 is just fine to produce bokeh and separation
2) I tend to forget to change settings and I’ve had many a beautiful group shot with family and friends destroyed by f1.8 rendering half the group out of focus. Less likely to happen with f4.
3) f4 is just one stop less than f2.8. With in camera stabilization and lens stabilization, the smaller aperture doesn’t matter as much unless you’re shooting a fast moving subject.

All in all, this is a great lens - I’ve sold all my other lens so it’s the only lens for my AIII. Recommended.
