SAL18135

J.F., Crutchfield
5 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this lens after looking at multiple other lens. I have to say it is my main lens at the moment. I use it more than the others due to the great range and flexibility it provides. the pictures that I have taken with it are very good, crisp, clear, sharp. It does not take as good a quality picture thou as the SAL35F18 prime lens I have, but that is to be expected. I have used this lens way more thou, especially when I don't want to carry multiple lens.
  • Pros: great range, flexibility

Excellent lens!

icemantx, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I have the Sony A57 and now also the Sony 18-135mm. I must say I am very impressed with this lens. The 18-135mm has a new SAM focus motor and is very quiet, quick to focus and very sharp at all focal lengths. I sold my Sony 16-50 to gain more reach and I have no regrets. The 16-50 f2.8 is a great lens, but for a general purpose lens, the 18-135 is a perfect focal range for me. Highly recommended!
  • Pros: Quiet focus Direct Manual Focus (DMF) Quick Focusing Great build quality
  • Cons: None

Excellent All Round Zoom Lens

G Hooper, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: Overall, I find this to be a great lens. The zoom range makes this an extremely versatile lens - covering wide angle to a fairly tight zoom. The optical quality of this lens appears to be at least as good as the Nikon 18-200 which I had before and was always very pleased with. This lens works very well for both stills and video - one of the main reasons that I switched from Nikon to Sony. The SAM focussing system is very quick and and is very quiet.

Great upgrade

  • Summary: Bought this as an upgrade to my kit lens and have not been disapointed. Very versatile zoom range and the colour reproduction with my a330 is amazing, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to other alpha owners.

Pin Sharp

Ferretusmaximus, Amazon

  • Summary: Needed a lens to bridge the gap between the wide angle and telephoto lenses. It had to be compact and versatile enough to cope with a wide variety of applications. This lens ticked all the boxes. It works down to a good wide-angle but also provides a reasonable telephoto capability. First used for a wedding and it provided everything expected of it, from the wide group shots down to the individual portraits.

User Review

17 June 2014
  • Excerpt: На данный момент ничего лучше для minolta a просто нет. Самый часто используемый объектив в моем парке. Нереально удобно для тех кто снимает какой нибудь показ а потом сразу бежит к прессволлу чтоб на 18mm запечатлеть толпу людей. В хорошую погоду можно снимать репортаж только на этот объектив а не тащить целый мешок.
  • Pros: Передняя линза не вращается, высокая контрастность, ультразвуковой мотор, плавный привод (можно снимать видео звуков и подергиваний при изменении зума не будет) Крепкая конструкция, быстро берет фокус, никаих хроматических аберраций
  • Cons: до 24mm f = 3.5 дальше темно, в помещениях с плохой освещенностью сложнее снимать и приходится выдвигать iso, для APS-C матрицы - на sony alpha 99 не подходит, только кроп

  • Summary: Ich war auf der Suche nach einem Reisezoom-Objektiv und bin, aufgrund von guten Kritiken, auf dieses Objektiv gestoßen. Bis jetzt bin ich total zufrieden. Auf meiner Amerikareise hatte ich nur dieses Objektiv verwendet und es sind super Bilder geworden. Klare Kaufempfehlung!!!!

Tolles Immerdrauf

Achim Pancke, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: Ich verwende das Objektiv mit einer Sony a 57. Nachdem ich mir eine schöne Ausrüstung mit dem Tamron 70-200 2.8 und dem Tamron 17-50 2.8, Sony SAL 50 1.8 und Umengen weiteren Krams zugelegt hatte, war ich mit den Ergebnissen sehr zufrieden, jedoch nicht mit dem Gewicht! Ebenfalls musste ich feststellen das ich mich mit dem Tamron 70-200 2.8 mit Gegenlichtblende in der Öffentlichkeit nicht sehr wohl gefühlt habe, da das ein "ganz schön großer Ballermann" ist.
