A competent kit lens that meets its goal

  • Excerpt: It's a kit lens, and therefore expecting to measure it against dedicated lens offerings is unrealistic. <br />As is, the lens performs very well in real world situations. Outdoor shots are sharp and detailed across it's entire range. The pancake design provides a nice manageable size for when you really wish to pocket carry. The powered zoom feature does have one plus not mentioned..
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: 405 Mm Filter Size, Battery drain, Not The Quietest

What a great lens!

  • Summary: Up until now I've dealt with the Sony 18-55, which is also very nice but this one is something else. It's far more convenient to use and carry because of its relatively-small dimensions. It also has a power zoom that strikes as a less-delicate zoom feeling at first but after a couple more times it becomes simply great. I only own Sony lenses because of their great quality and reasonable price compare to others, and this one is no exception.

It's a kit lens

  • Summary: This is the "newer" kit lens that is included with Sony NEX (being transitioned into the alpha lineup) cameras. Most people probably won't be buying this separately. The older version that was included up to the NEX-5R (I think) is big and has standard non-powered zoom. This one is a lot more compact. Now you can really have a compact NEX set up with a zoom lens (before, the only option is to use the pancake prime lens).

Super Deal

  • Summary: This is a super deal on the Sony SELP-1650. Although this product comes with no documentation or warranty the price is worth the absence of those documents. I checked and all mechanics worked properly aperture, auto focusing.

Cheap and handy.

  • Summary: i got this lens because I wanted to have a short range zoom on the camera all the time, mainly for landscapes. It has turned my Sony NEX-7 into a high grade point and shoot that is always with me. It is a great lens and fun to use!

Great lens

NBM, Amazon

  • Summary: The main perk of this lens is the added portability. I use this lens on an NEX-5R and can easily carry it around over my shoulder or in a jacket pocket. IQ is good for a kit/zoom lens and the power zoom controls are handy when shooting video as well.
