Summary: I purchased this lens for my Sony Nex6 and Nex 5N based on reviews from others. I previously used a Sony 16mm lens that stopped working. The new lens works well with both cameras. I can either use the wide angle or telephoto for all types of shots.
Summary: After years of fiddling with Canon DSLRs for video, this lens was a huge relief. No more focus hunting (when paired with the a5100), no dreadful autofocus noise, no sticky zoom ring. I haven't had the need to upgrade to a better zoom lens.
Summary: Great lens for the price. Bought this for use mainly with Video on A6000. Focus is quick and accurate. Packaging was so so...(bubble wrap), but no complaints as to how lens looks and works (new).
replaced my Sony NEX-3NL/B original kit lens perfectly...

Summary: Exactly what I needed - when I dropped my Sony NEX-3NL/B, my pancake lens (included in the original kit) was no longer recognized by my camera. I knew the camera itself still functioned, but I needed to get a new lens or get my old one fixed.

Summary: This is a very good lens..........for photographers. Pixel peepers need not apply. But still good image quality. Use this lens anywhere cause it turns your nex into a pocket. Very light weight pancake construction with motor zoom, i like it.
Pros: Light weight, fast autofocus, good color
Cons: Cheapish, flare, jpg only due to massive distortion
