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.

Summary: Great full technology lens for most amateur applications. It is new lens taken from store combo kits i beleive, comes with both caps and new perfect condition. It arrived in 3 or 4 days from Shangai to México City. $$ well below list Price.
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.
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!
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.
Excellent, not for cheaper or plastic is bad to photographers

Summary: First: is fragile, so you must to use carefully. After this, and his plastic concept, the lens is fantastic, very light and smallest, fast focus, exceptional 16mm angle with just a very little distortion which is intrascendent for normal pictures, with very nice colours and contrast. Cheaper, what more..? If some day it will broke is easy buy another new.
Summary: The pancake is a portable casual option for the Sony NEX line. It takes sharp imagines and has performed well with whatever I throw it at. The wide angle distortion makes taking close-up pictures of people kind of weird if you don't know what you're doing, but for all else it's a good choice for auto features and compactness.
