Sharpness- this lens is sharp! Ive also rented the 85mm zeiss. p
Primes are supposed to be the sharpest but comparing photos taken with the 16 - 70 to the zeiss 85mm prime it seems like the 16-70 beats it by a noticeable difference. I dont know what it is but this thing is sharp. The only thing ive used that it sharper is the 50mm sigma art lens.
Size and weight:
This was prpbably my biggest concern when purchasing this lens. I was tired of switching lenses. I was also so tired of carrying big bulky 2.8f lenses around. This thing is light and pretty compact. I mean super light compared to say the sigma 50mm art or my old Tamron 2470mm 2.8. Paired with the a6000 i can carry it all day and not be frustrated with the bulk or weight. The combo also makes it wonderful on a tripod.
Colors and contrast:
The pictures pop! They almost have a 3d look with just a snap. The colors are amazing and also pop but not too much to make photos look fake.
Close to $1000 is expensive! But this is the only lens I use even for portraits or landscape. I dont do much telephoto but i hardlt have a need to change this lens off the camera.
This only opens to f4 which can kind of limit this lens to brighter lighted scenes and less bokeh but I usually compose the photo to circumvent these issues. But not having it open to a 2.8 cuts down on weight and size. If i really want bokeh I usually do some quick post process to add some blur. I also thought zeiss would save the wuality for the 2.8 lenses but not with this lens. The photos coming from this are hard to match.
The Sony is an excellent lens, sharp, good color etc. I was afraid before purchase since a lot of reviews mention soft borders. My copy is sharp also at the borders.
I have no regrets leaving my Nikon setup at home (D600 + Tamron 24-70 F2.8). I chose the international version to save some $$$ and it works, fast shipping, nicely package.
