Not the sharpest tool, but good all-around

  • Excerpt: I purchased an A6000 with this lens. It's a kit lens and you shouldn't expect any more from it. Wide open it tends to be a bit soft, stopped down it has decent sharpness and contrast. The OSS works well and is nice for both photos and videos.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Oss Optical Stabilization
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Soft wide open, Zoom Noise In Video

Compact and reliable

  • Excerpt: I've used the lens for a long trek in Nepal, and for many family occasions. It's not as sharp as other lenses I've tried (Zeiss Touit, mostly), but the useful focal length, compactness, and overall OK picture quality made this lens stay attached to My A6000 for a long time. Very fast auto-focus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

not the best but does the job.

  • Summary: I had this lens for about 3 months before it broke. It was in my bag and apparently the lens barrel had protruded outward and was misaligned while it was in my camera bag. When it performed it was ok for what it was. Didn't feel that fast and quality wise gave images that were subpar.

Misleading Item Description of a Lens that is Not Great for Serious Photographers

Sarah M., Amazon

  • Summary: 2 stars for the item description and 2 stars for the item itself. This product is listed as "bulk packaging." To me, bulk packaging means an unmarked box, not a gray market lens with no paperwork and no back cap stuffed in a flimsy piece of bubble wrap.
