Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens DxOMark Review: Best Zoom in the Range!

DxOMark published their Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens review and test results saying that the 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens is the best-performing zoom in the maker’s range. Tested on Sony a7R, Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens achieved a DxOMark score of 29 points, with a combination of 17 P-Mpix Sharpness, 2.8 TStop Transmission, 0.7% Distortion, -1.6 EV Vignetting and 10μm Chr.aberration.

Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM vs Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM vs Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR:

Conclusion from DxOMark:

Given the emphasis on the high-grade components and construction to match the maker’s high-resolution sensors, we had high hopes for the Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM, and we weren’t disappointed. It is the best-performing zoom in the maker’s range and can easily hold its own against the new AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR. However, for edge-to-edge to sharpness, the Sony isn’t quite in the same league as the Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L USM II, but we still have to add the Sony A7RII to propose a fair comparison with the 50 Mpix Canon EOS 5DSR. Nevertheless, the Sony does have certain strengths — better transmission and lower lateral chromatic aberration than many high-grade primes — and while certainly pricey, it’s still a competitive and tempting addition to the range.

The newly released Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens is the ultimate choice for those seeking the highest possible optical performance for portrait, travel and event photography or even simple everyday shooting.
