This FE12-24 G is winning a well deserved place in the Sony lenses lineup
Light , well built, its optical quality is excellent in practice. Very consistent center to border, no chromatic aberration , low distortion , very good flare resistance, fast and reliable Af, quiet operation, unlimited creative possibility for wide angle fans
It is a must for Architectural shooters.
For landscape shooters it will go along the 16-35 but will not replace it. The 16-35 has still a little edge in term of sharpness and contrast if you have a >40Mpix camera and if you need to do very large prints (100 * 150cm)
