A local retailer informed me some customers were reporting a focus shift problem with the new Sony FE24-105 f4 G OSS (SEL24105G) experienced in certain shooting conditions. That explains – at least in part – why the lens is out of stock almost everywhere you look right now. Of course the lens is also in high demand due to it ticking all the right boxes for amateur and pro photographers alike. Pity, this problem may make the lens even harder to get in the next few weeks/months until that is sorted out.
Good thing is, Sony is already offering help for users who are experiencing focus problems and have a page online where users can check whether or not their copy is affected. See the link here.
The new Sony G lens is on the top of my list for reviewing with the Sony Alpha A7riii (Sony ILCE-7RM3), so I am hoping this issue will be resolved quickly.
