OK starter lens
3 weeks ago
Summary: good lens clear bright pictures. A good starter lens. Not the best but ok for everyday pictures. This is a nice kit lens for someone to use everyday. I have taken some good pictures outside with this , needs good lighting for inside. I keep this on my backup camera for quick snapshots when traveling. I would recommend this lens for a new photographer, it is simple to use and gives ok results.
Summary: Two years ago decided to enter the dslr field with the nex line. Since then have aquired 5 bodies from diferent nex models (2 Nex-3,2 Nex-5,1 Nex-C3). Since I'm a hobbist with several fields of interest in photography I find it more practical to use each body for a diferent field. One body I use mainly in panorama shooting mode and this lens I consider outstanding for this object.
Summary: Best price for this lens I could find, by far. Shipped and received early from Korea. Lens was exactly as described and meets my needs for a low cost wide angle lens. If you're looking for a low cost wide angle lens, this is the one for you.
Summary: Sony makes a 16-50 lens that is physically smaller and incorporates a power zoom that would usually be a better choice for most users. I happened to have an unusual requirement that "forced" me to buy this lens and I'm happy with its performance. That stated, I still revert to the 16-50 power zoom or the 55-210 zoom for every-day use.
Summary: I purchased my Sony DSLR with ann 18-135 zoom and it is the best "vacation lens" for my type of photography. However, I also like to do macro work so I needed a solution for that problem. This kit lens is very good for filling in the gap. I have been pleased with the quality of the photos I took using it.
Summary: I bought this lense for my spare Sony a55 so I don't wear my A77 and expensive lenses. I use this camera for everyday use and it does the job. It is not the greatest lens but it works and that if anything happens to it I won't be crying. Compare to the other lenses I have its not as sharp as I wanted it to be, but again it still take good picture with my Sony a55 The shipping also was fast and packed good. I would recomend this lense for everyday use.
