From Amateur Photographer:
From my time using the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS, I’d have to conclude that it’s the best-judged general-purpose zoom Sony has yet made. Impressively sharp, not too bulky, weather-resistant and with a really useful zoom range, it ticks all the right boxes. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with it.
Indeed for those buying into the full-frame Alpha system anew, I’d say this 24-105mm is just as good a choice as the FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, depending on your preferences. Obviously some photographers will prefer the brighter aperture, but I’d rather take the longer range and smaller size – not to mention the lower price.
In addition, KenRockwell reviewed the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS lens and said “This Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS is the world’s best midrange zoom”.
This Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS is the world’s best midrange zoom. It offers spectacular optical performance as well as first-rate mechanical construction at half the price of similar lenses, and it’s smaller, lighter and has better ergonomics than the more expensive lenses. It is a superb lens at a reasonable price, a weather-resistant baby version of the huge 24-70mm f/2.8 GM.
This is a professional lens at a consumer price!
