Kai from Digitalrev takes a look at this super zoom from Sony. The zoom range sounds great but how will it fair with this hands on review?
Bokeh not too horrendous at all sharpness is good in the center, it performs well enough and “Great all in one lens for travel and good enough if you wanna photograph a sheep with poo stuck to their bum” according to Kai.
Also we’d add that you could definitely capture footage of a bear rolling down a hill in Denali National Park, which seems to be the new bear hype nowadays.
Softish on the edges, significant amount of flare, autofocus…not that quick, minimum focus distance…not that close, just a bit dull. Kai seemed very unimpressed about the new Sony 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3.
This is the third episode in a row filmed in the UK so we can’t help but wonder if the lens would have seemed as dull if the review was done in Hong Kong instead.
If you’re looking for something All Right At A Little Bit Of Everything, this might be the lens for you BUT the Sony 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 retails at $973.00 which is quite a lot considering its capability.
Would you buy this lens for your Sony system?
A few days ago Kai Wong from Digitalrev announced on Twitter that he had received a Sony A7R II for review. So the question is, is Sony A7R II a Disappointment Or is it Bloody Awesome?
I must say i haven’t seen Kai so enthralled with a camera in years. In his own words “If you want the best, you’ll never get it. If you want a really bloody good camera that is here and now, well, you’re looking at it.”
If you want a piece of this bloody awesomeness you’ll have to be willing to dosh a wiping $3,198.

Could the Sony A7R II be the Canon 5Ds killer? I for one would be really interested in seeing a Sony A7R II vs the Canon 5Ds Digitalrev style review.
You’d think stereotypes were dead nowadays but apparently female photographers using DSLRs instead of small mirrorless cameras are still getting strange and weird reactions from guys.
Rita and Lok from Digitalrev made this funny video showing 7 Things Female Photographers Are Tired of Hearing. It seems this video is actually inspired from real life experience the team had on the streets.
