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
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.
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)...
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.
