Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Unboxing

It looks like the Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.4-6.3 OSS lens has landed a bit earlier than expected. A user on a German Sony forum has posted first images from one of Sony’s new lenses.

The original German link is here.

The translated link is available here.

The zoom ring is relatively stiff, but this is to be welcomed, because if the lens is held down, it does not move by itself from. This is indeed known, for example from the SEL 18-200 and therefore, this lens also has a lock switch, I have not missed the 24-240 after 3 days of intensive use.

Sony’s US site has listed the date for preorder for each of the four new FE lenses announced recently.
