Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Review

Dustin Abbott

July 10th, 2020

The Sony 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS is one of Sony’s older full frame E-mount lenses, but I’ve just gotten around to reviewing it because of the release of the new Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD.  Not all lenses age well, and that is particularly true here when compared to a much newer (and much better) competitor.  The Tamron’s liabilities come in the form of a reduced zoom range and a reliance on camera stabilization rather than having OSS in the lens, but the Sony strongly suffers by comparison in the image quality department.  It also adds no additional features or incentives for purchase outside of the image stabilizer, and runs about $300 USD more expensive.  The Tamron easily provides better image quality and a faster maximum aperture at a cheaper price ($730 USD), a combination that will most likely draw in most modern buyers.  Despite that, however, I did want to give the FE 24-240mm a fair review and evaluation in the present, which I’m sharing in the form of the video review below. I’ve reviewed the FE 24-240mm on my Sony a7RIII and Sony a9 bodies, and you can see photos from both cameras below.  I hope the review and photos help inform your buying decision, and you are welcome to check out the Tamron review here as well.
