I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

16-70mm f4

It's a Zeiss T*-coated, optically stabilized lens, but it's midrange rather than high-end.

16-70mm f4

While f4 is good at 70mm, it's a lot less flexible at 16mm.

18-105mm f4

F4 is good for 105mm, but not great as the maximum aperture at 18mm.

18-105mm f4

A power zoom lens in this focal range would make a good alternative kit lens.

18-105mm f4

The seven-bladed aperture is relatively polygonal.
