Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
The Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS lens is compatible with all Sony E-mount cameras, including both full-frame and APS-C sensor format models. With a focal length range so extreme, this lens does not have a single-lens alternative in the Sony lineup. The biggest downside to this lens is the mediocre image quality it produces.

  • Compact, compact design

  • No manual focus
