    New Lense, First offering

    Just purchased a new Sony G series 16-80with Carl Zeiss optics. No time yet to explore its sweet spot, but wanted to grab some shots before the next rain. Any thoughts appreciated

    Looks like it will be a nice lens Kevin. I thought the 16-80 Zeis is a DT? Either way....I look forward to seeing more from it.

    Paul,

    Thanks. You may well be right, I'm not terribly well versed in the nomenclature Sony uses. I found the lense having searched the G series, but it doesnt have the gold emblem (or quite the price tag that I've seen in the G series). I apparently mistakenly equated the Zeiss glass with the G series. I shall look that up-dont want to be inaccurate.

    lol No worries, It is a fantastic lens. I just thought maybe they came out with a new one. lol I have the DT16-50 2.8ssm and love it!! It is quite sharp. Enjoy that lens...... I think you will be amazed at how nice it is. and mine does not have Zeis glass...

    Very nice shot Kevin. Colours exposure and focus are spot on. The lens should do a good job for you.

    Thanks, Dave

    I'd be embarassed if anyone knew how excited I was when the UPS man pulled up. Still a child at heart.

    If that's just a quick test shot, just wait until you get serious

    Very nice - and folks - do view this in the Lytebox and expand to 100% to really appreciate it

    Well done,
