Sony FE 24-240 Sharpness

1 year 11 months ago #694724 by RcEnolc

I have a Sony Alpha II, and am looking to upgrade from the kit lens (28-70), and am trying to decide between the FE 24-240 and the FE 24-105. While the 24-105 will undoubtedly be sharper I am trying to understand how much a difference this will make on the 24Mp sensor. Does anyone know how big of a difference this will be as most of the sample images and reviews are based around the Alpha IIIR?

The 24-240 doesn't have a very good reputation for image quality. If you look at test numbers for that lens on DXOmark it is a dismal performer. You may want to look at the new 28-200 Tamron lens. It's lighter, cheaper and has been getting stellar reviews. The Sony 24-105 has a good reputation but it is a wee bit pricey. Good luck on your choice.
