GREAT LENS, NICE ADDITION TO MY TWO KIT LENSES

M Blair, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I brought an A100 Kit with the two 18-75, 75-300mm lenses this completes the entire range from ultra wide to super telephoto. Used it for some great sunset photos. Took a little time to get here because of all the winter weather, but FEDEX is a great shipping company and kept us up to date on where my package was. Vendor shipped quick, and product as advertised.

Great lens but is it a value?

Thomas C. Banks, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: After I bought my Sony a65 I was determined to put together a relatively complete kit for it. This was one of my last lens purchases because of the cost and the range. Would I really use a super-wide zoom enough to justify the cost? The jury's still out so it's yes and no. I have 18mm-300mm covered with 2 inexpensive quality Sony zooms so 90+% of all photo needs are met. I end up lugging this in my bag a lot only to collect dust.

wide-angle lens

  • Summary: Couldn't be happier! I was looking at wide angle lenses and got stuck between 2 sony lenses (one of which was a carl zeiss. Im too lazy to look them up :P). So I went to my dealer who only had this lens in the wide- angle section, and i'm glad i chose it. It had a discount so i can't argue over the price. Quality is pretty good, with almost no noticable barrel distortion from what i've seen, and I also haven't seen any chromatic abberation or what so ever yet.

  • Summary: ...there is a horrible grinding sound when you adjust the focus ring. I think mine is a bad copy. The image quality is very nice for the price.

Sony DT 11-18 wide angle zoom lens, an excellent product.

Hawkeye50, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased this lens for attachment to Sony Alpha 55. I have only used the lens a few times, but my expectations for its physical quality and lens performance as advertised are totally met. Digital image quality is crisp and clear, no edge shadows. I strongly recommend this lens for its quality and performance. At this point I give the lens five stars without reservation. I am not a professional photographer.

If you're looking for wide angle - this is it!

Tony Johns, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Im using a cropped body sony SLR that came with an 18-70 and 55-200 lens kit. I love shooting landscapes and the 18-70 simply wasnt wide enough for me. I decided to go for this lens and i'm extremely pleased i did. For me it represents so much value for money and it has given me the possibility to shoot some wonderful shots that i would not have been able to!

Great wide angle lens

Deathmirage, Amazon
6 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this lens used from 'Mr Haney's Emporium' at a good price. It arrived quickly and in great condition. Saved me several hundred dollars over a new one and it works just as good as a new one. The lens itself takes wonderful pictures with my Sony A77.

Great Lens for Many Uses

thejumbo, Sony
22 March 2012
  • Summary: I use this lens a lot, mostly for real estate/home interior shots. I purchased it specifically to get some great shots of a home theater that we submitted for an award, and have used it in nearly every home installation that we have done since. It has great color, and you never run out space to fit an entire room into a shot.
  • Pros: Great color, Decent speed, Good optics, AMAZING width in shots, Lightweight
  • Cons: A touch slow in low light, size of barrel makes flash shots hard
