  1. For being an early model, it looks very promising indeed. Thanks for sneaking some shots and sharing them.

  2. Hi Viktor,
    I hope you are enjoying Köln ! I see that you couldn’t resist travelling with your lovely girlfriend for a few posed shots !

    Looks very promising; thanks.

    wow those results are actually great! I’m assuming all those shots were shot at f/4, around ~1/60s-1/100s, right?. If yes, not only it’s plenty sharp wide open, but also the OSS is working very well. Think I’m going to break the piggy bank on this one

    • Hi Dan, most of shots were taken at f/4, but I will need to get back home and upload full-res to be sure. I will post the link here for RAWs available for download. It seems that Sony 16-35/4 is ready for the market, much more lenses today and no restrictions.

    Thanks for the hands-on and first impression. They look great.

  6. Thor says:

    If you where to use it on a A6000 for example, what would the equivalent zoom range be?

    • Drew says:

      Would be 24-52.5mm f5.6 (crop sensor has less depth of field. One must apply crop factor to both focal length and aperture.)

      • Hi Drew, just to make it a bit more clear, If you equalize FOV (to see same portion of the image on FF like on APS-C) using same FL, DOF will be shallower on Full Frame (you will have larger part of image in focus on APS-C). If you however stay on the same position and shot the image using same FL with FF and APS-C, (you will have tighter FOV with APS-C), the situation with DOF will be actually opposite.

    I was worried this might be a let down in some ways after the sharp corner to corner Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS L this year, since I’m planning on switching to Sony. But this looks nicely done!

    Thanks for the info Victor… What are your observations if you compare it to SEL1018? Do you think it’s remarkably better than SEL1018? I just sold it to finance this lens and a A7 body.I cant wait to see your detailed tests…

    • Hi Hakan. Based on my initial expression and few test shots in the less than ideal condotions, it looks at least as good on FF as SEL 1018 f/4 OSS on my APS-C cameras. If you mean how it compare to SEL 1018 f/4 OSS used on FF camera, than I would dare to say – much better. (In terms of distortion, ccorner sharpness and of course – usable range).

  9. Hakan says:

    Btw, i have tried Fujinon XF1024 for two weeks, and find is inferior to SEL1018, surprisingly (due to a lot of praise on the net) , did you also check this lens?

  10. Hakan says:

    Thanks Viktor. Btw, new site is much better than previous blog…
