DxOMark published the test results of the new Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Vario-Sonnar T* Lens. The new Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Lens gets 21 points overall DxOMark lens score on the full-frame Sony A99, and it has an excellent performer optically. Compared to the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM, this new version is much improved in uniformity at 70mm. But, this Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Lens is still behind the Canon and Nikon equivalents a little.
Conclusion From DxOMark:
As with its sibling, the new lens coatings have had a somewhat mixed effect on the sharpness levels across the field. While it has improved uniformity at 70mm, there are several instances where sharpness levels have dropped. It’s particularly noticeable at 50mm in the mid and outer field position. Overall, though, the lens is good performer. The addition of AF compatibility with the contrast detection AF capabilities of the E-mount cameras (using an optional adapter) and the weather sealing are significant benefits over its predecessor.
