GREAT PERFORMANCE

Casual Bob, B&H Photo
12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this to use on vacation in lieu of my 18-55. Substantial construction. Beautiful color on landscapes.....even photographed whales breaching and got pretty good detail. Didn't let me use shutter in some auto modes, but in manual, even for an amateur like me, a good all around lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Great lens for the Alpha DSLR cameras.

Paul D Bagley, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: This has become my primary lens on my A580. It covers most of the range that I need, with the exception of long range wildlife photos. The images are very sharp at full magnification, nearly as sharp as my best 50mm prime lens.

Slow Lens

FotoEric, Sony
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Advertised as f/3.5 - 5.6. At 16 mm focal length, the maximum aperture is f/3.5. However, at 24 mm focal length, it jumps to f/4.5, and at 35 mm focal length, it jumps to f/5, which is disappointingly "slow", This information is not available in the "specifications".
