Recently bought the Sony A7R2 and been monitoring the full frame Sony zoom lens prices at camera price buster and others.

Appreciate this is not for everyone but if you are looking for a full frame Sony FE zoom lens ( excluding grey imports) I cannot find a cheaper uk supplier.

This is £599.99 before cashback claim of £80 which makes this £519.99 after cashback payout from Sony.

Free delivery and they also have outlets in quite a few city centres.

Cashback expires 2nd September 2018
sony.co.uk/cas…er/

The next cheapest is £699 and it’s over £750 at most other retailers!

Key Features Include:- Full Frame FE Mount standard zoom lens from ZEISS
- Constant F4 maximum aperture throughout zoom range
- ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating minimises flare
- Circular 7-blade aperture for beautiful defocus effects
- Dust and moisture resistant design
- 67mm Filter Diameter

Brilliant price for a superb lens. This gets slagged all the time but it’s a cracking bit of glass for this money

Why does it get slagged all the time?

Loads of reviewers say it’s not good enough to be a Zeiss, soft corners, etc etc but for the money it’s a hidden gem.

Any lens can have a good and bad copy. Not just Sony that does that either.
The LCE branch list shows there are 30 outlets spread nationally (mine is local) so there is always the option of calling in to one if you feel the lens is overly soft in corners.
A good copy at this price will do for me.

I’ve had two copies of this lens. Worse lens in the Sony line up by a long mile. The 28-70 kit lens at half the price is better. I recommend users to steer clear of this lens. If you need a mid range zoom stick with the 28-70 (a real ‘hidden gem’) and spend the rest on 55mm zeiss

The extra 4mm on the wide end makes a massive difference for wide angle users or for versatility plus the Zeiss colours and contrast are vastly superior to the 28-70 kit. I agree about the 55mm Zeiss though, best lens ever made for any system
24 -105 is better but costs a lot more. Agree the 55 is a great lens & lovely and light. Voted hot BTW

True - but it's a very well known issue that this lens has many bad copies.

I'm only messing. I would imagine they have improved it over time, yes. If they haven't then they need to have a look at themselves.
