Sony SAL-24105 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Reviews

Kurtmunger reviews the Sony SAL-24105 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 and writes;
“This lens performs surprisingly well on the A900. The centers are sharp at almost any length and aperture, as I said above, the corners hold up well and look about as good as the much more expensive Sony 24-70mm F/2.8 Carl Zeiss zoom corners..”
rating: N/A

Alphamountworld reviews the Sony SAL-24105 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 and writes;
“Image quality is a somewhat mixed affair. The good of it is that it exhibits very decent bokeh courtesy of the semi-circular aperture blades, and it is sharp in the center (about 70% of the image) no matter what focal length or aperture. Color and contrast too are very good on this lens..”

Should have bought the Zeiss | Rating: ★★★☆☆
“I purchased the Sony SAL 24-105 zoom for my Alpha 850. The images I get with the lens are satisfactory, and it is nice and light..” – by Thaiman 52

A fine small zoom | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I’ve been shooting with my copy for a few months and, am happy as a clam that it cost so little but delivers high quality images. A good solid performer. If you get it on sale, I would call it an excellent lens..” – by J. Coates

Features & Specifications

Sony SAL-24105 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Specifications

Perfect for traveling, the compact and easy-to-carry SAL-24105 zoom lens is just right for the most common focal lengths and general-purpose photography. A high-performance standard zoom for wide-angle to midrange telephoto shots. This compact, easy-to-carry lens carries you from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm telephoto–the range of focal lengths you’ll use most often for general-purpose photography, giving you a single lens to use on vacation or take on location. Mounted on the Sony α (Alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides 35mm wide-angle to 157.7mm telephoto imaging (35mm equivalent).


* 5x Zoom Range: Smaller and lighter, it’s the only 5x zoom lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony α (Alpha) DSLR-A100 camera.
* Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements: Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improve picture quality across the entire zoom range.
* Circular Aperture: Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
* Auto Clutch: In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate–and in manual focusing, a wider focus ring provides a solid, hands-on feel.
