I kept this over the Sony 16-50mm SSM to use on my a77ii

  • Summary: I've been with the Sony Alpha line of cameras for quite a few years. I am currently using the a77ii. I've gone through many lenses always in search of the "magical" one (Minolta, Sony, Sigma and others). In the end, I was split between this lens and the Sony 16-50mm 2.8 SSM kit lens. I had both, and still have a very hard time deciding but in the end this lens won due to the longer focal reach and the zoom & focus felt better to me.

A great all-around lens

  • Summary: This is generally my go-to lens for many projects these days: event photography, landscapes, people, food photography. You name it. It's so great to have so much of a choice in f/stops as well as distance in one lens. It isn't too heavy, which is nice too. And it's nearly silent when focusing. The pictures are sharp and clear and well-saturated and don't seem to have any chromatic aberrations.

  • Summary: Excellent, sharp, clear and did everything I was hoping for in low light. I used it with my Sony A77ii to take some interior pictures of the Mission San Xavier del Bac. I was more than pleased.

Kinda like your one stop shop

  • Summary: Ameteur-Semi-pro work, this baby is the the ticket. Kinda like your one stop shop. If you're looking to get your foot in the door and produce amazing shots, this is the lens for you. If you're trying to get paid for your shots though, spend a little more dough.

Great companion for the Nikon d7100!

  • Summary: Excellent all around lens. Small in size and light weight with a nice wide to zoom range. All that with a f2.8-4.0 makes one of the fastest standard zoom lens out there.

  • Summary: great lens, super sharp! macro is nice and great in low light. This replaces my Canon 17-85 f4-5.6 that has a broken aperature. Kind of glad it broke to be honest.

Sharpest lens I own. Better than the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 by far!

Bradly Bennison, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow! Just wow! This is the sharpest lens I own. Before buying this I bought the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 and was not impressed with it at all! The 17-50 was supposed to be quiet and fast focusing with HSM but it was slow and loud. This new C lens has definitely had an upgrade to the HSM motor cause its a lot faster and quieter (although not as quiet and fast as a Canon STM lens). I loved this lens from the beginning! It looks stunning and performs stunning.

Great Walk-around, everyday lens!

  • Summary: I bought this lens for the Nikon D5100 as a replacement for the 18-55 kit lens. This lens is fantastic. I spent months researching and comparing different options. I selected this lens because of of its low light capability over other lenses I was considering.
