Newsshooter at CP+ Tokyo 2015- Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 lens first look

By technical Editor Matt Allard:

At CP+ in Japan Sony were showing their new FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 lens. This variable aperture full frame capable lens has a very usable 24-240mm focal range. In APS-C mode this lens offers you 36-360mm. For a7 owners the 24-240mm provides a lot of versatility and would make a good all in one travel lens. The lens also feature OSS (Optical Steady Shot Image Stabilization) which should help compensate for the slower apertures at the longer end of the focal range.

I had a quick hands on with the lens at CP+ and while it looked to perform well from around 24-100mm, it did look noticeably softer at the far end of the focal range. Build quality was average but it was nice to handle and use.

There was no indication of pricing or availability from Sony.
