Switch between wide angle and telephoto without having to change lenses, so more of those fleeting moments will be captured. Advanced optics effectively subdue aberration while achieving high resolution throughout the image area, and a precision linear motor drives focus for quick, smooth response.

I am satisfied with my Sony A7RII and 24-240mm that I use to carry when trekking ; it is heavy (1,9 kg with accessories and protection) but less than several lenses.
It takes good pictures but I think it needs post-processing (with DxO for instance) because there is a lack of micro contrast.
I would like also more reactivity on focusing over 200 mm ; perhaps the focus motor is not powerful enough…
