Good points:
good focusing speed, nice range of zoom - really happy with purchase
Bad points:
can't help but feel that the price is over inflated for the Sony name, vignetting at extreme wide but easily sorted with software

Peter, Liskeard, Cornwall

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great lens that is a must if you own a Sony Alpha camera, it brings out the very best in my a700 with a good feel compared to the standard kit lens. Build is good although could be better but with the Zeiss badge on the side you know what your getting.
Bad points:
Auto focus is quite loud but then all Sony lens are! and the price which is high but worth it for Zeiss.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sharp through range, brilliant colours (zeiss coatings) quick and reasonably silent autofocus. Excellent range!
Bad points:
Build is decent not outstanding but decent, a little expensive but comparable to other systems and they aren't Zeiss Optics.

Stuart, Manchester Keen amatuer photographer

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Image quality is good,
Bad points:
Expected a better overall finish from a name such as Zeiss, black mottled plastic??????. The clip in front lense cover sometimes jams in position making it difficult to remove. Focusing ring operation could be smoother.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic sharpness throughout whole range
Bad points:
very slight vignetting at 16mm so beware of full size filters, try to get the slimmest filters you can.
