  • Summary: I bought this lens refurbished to go with my Sony A6000 camera body that I got for free from the Sony College Program. It does everything that I want and I can't think of any cons.

Not acceptable

  • Excerpt: Don't know how to square my now 3-day-long experience with the people who like this lens. Maybe it's a quality control problem and I got a bad one. I had a Samsung NX series mirrorless keep-in-my-car camera to compliment my several Sony A-Mount DSLR cameras for about a year.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Good lens

  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my NEX3N after trashing the original lens (wouldn't pop out any more). Love the lens. It's very compact and still gives a reasonable zoom range.

Requires extreme post production lens compensation fixes

  • Summary: I can't believe I wasted the money to buy this. When I do night landscape time lapses, there are so many lens artifacts it's insane. 1) There is vignetting on all corners, but unequal (manual gradient to fix) 2) There is a center dark spot vignette about 1/3 of image (manual circle gradient to fix)...

Really a Decent Little Kit Lens

Tony, B&H Photo
17 April 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens came bundled with my a6000, and I 100% agree with Mel S. This little lens does a fine job when shooting JPG's with in-camera processing. I have a few other Sony e-mount lenses, including the F1.8 50mm prime. Yes, that lens is better, but not astonishingly better when shooting JPG's.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Summary: For me, this is just an mediocre lens that has limited usability. It's very usable in daylight and great for Travel because of it focus range and retracted form factor. Not so great in low light situations.

Excellent for the price

  • Summary: Very good quality and price. Use it with the Sony a6000 with good results. It is small and has stabilizer which is a plus.
