Summary: I had a NEX 5 and wanted a zoom lens after a trip to the Amazon River (not the website). After much review, this looked like what I wanted with the filters, batteries, etc etc. The order was shipped quickly, and everything was in the package as advertised. I would order from them again.
Summary: This lens was purchased for me as a Christmas present. For a short time the lens went off the market, however, I snagged it right before that happened. The lens is made of good quality and works with the Sony Nex cameras. I have a Sony Nex 5, first edition camera and it works flawlessly. Whether you use manual or automatic focus, this lens works hand in hand with the Nex without problem.
Summary: A really nice lens - great for capturing peoples faces when they are not posing The lens is large - and you may find yourself walking backwards a lot to get the full image - but then etc. The set of filter etc also added to the value.
Excerpt: The size and weight are right for a mirrorless camera zoom. I use primes for my shorter focal lengths. Because there are no native 100mm to 200mm e-mount primes this slim zoom fills the need wonderfully. Quality construction and great IQ for the price. The speed is not designed for indoor use but my need is for outdoors so I'm a happy camper. Slight dust evident in inside barrel of lens but this issue is with any zoom.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
