Much improved over the old version

  • Excerpt: I've been using this lens with my FS-100 (and more recently FS7) for a while. It's my go-to for handheld "don't know what's going to happen next" shots because it can roll with just about any situation. It has so many things going for it.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Nice lens, but slooooooooow

  • Excerpt: Easy to mount, quiet motor, sharp images - a quality lens, but oh so slow to zoom. What was Sony thinking? Still, overall, it's a keeper.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Glacially Slow Zoom

Great "all-in-one" lens for NEX-6 with some minor size/formfactor flaws.

  • Summary: Fine "everything" lens for day-to-day shooting on my Nex-6. Slow/medium/fast servo zoom work great for video shooting. Even the "high" (fast) setting on the servo is slow for photography though - so I turn the servo off and manually zoom those - which works great.

Excellent, but know that it's heavy

Matthew J. Peters "graphoid", Amazon

  • Summary: Owned 6 months. There are several more detailed reviews here that I agree with. I'm very happy with the purchase - it has served me well, takes excellent shots across a wide range of focal lengths, is fast, but is much heavier than I expected, bringing the weight of the whole camera to a near DSLR...

Very good lens, specially for video filming.

  • Summary: Very good lens. I like all the features it offers. It has power zoom, with *three* speeds, and an option to switch to a manual zoom. The power zoom is a bit slow but it's a good thing. It adds more professional feeling to my videos. I use it with a Sony NEX-3N.

Quality lens with smooth motorized zoom

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to extend the focal range of my Sony NEX-6 that I originally purchased with an 11-18 mm ultrawide angle lens. I tried out the lens under some of the worst conditions in an interior museum gallery with no windows and no supplemental lighting and no tripod.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, Smooth Motorized Zoom
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Zoom

Way better than the previous silver version.

Phillip T., Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I have the older silver version of this lens that came with my FS700. It had issues. No zoom motor. Jumping out of focus at the beginning of zooms. And, I know this sounds vein, but it looked cheesy. All that gone now with this new, awesome lens.

I thought it be a lot better considering it cost 1 grand...

  • Summary: I acquired this lens when I purchased the NEX-EA50UH camcorder for my wedding video side business. I've had a chance to play around with this lens for a couple of days now but I am already finding a coupe of things I don't like... So in this review I am going to say all the things I don't like.

Great zoom lens.

  • Excerpt: Use for commercials, documentary and interviews on my Sony FS-700. Sharp and great focal length range. Not very fast but great all in one. For low light situations I use an Metabones speed booster adapter with Nikon prime lens. All together a perfect kit that covers all my needs in terms of lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable
