As far as I can remember kit lens usualy ment cheap and average lens. Of course they are some exceptions and some kits are really good performes. So how good is Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS which is sold as kit with full frame Sony E-mount cameras. If you think about buying one as a cheap walkaround zoom then this short review may help you decide if it is worth it.
Sony offers Carl Zeiss standard zoom for full frame E-mount – Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS. There are several reasons why it is chosen by users over 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 “kit” lens. To name most common ones: constant aperture, 24mm at wide end, Zeiss glass/coatings etc. Instead of doing one large test of this lens I’ll be posting separate parts for each standard focal length. For now we will check how it performs at 24mm to see how it compares to recenlty tested 24mm primes.
