The work house in my camera Bag

Arthur The Professor, B&H Photo
7 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I use in in Events, Street Photos, Sports and Fast action assignments. I can focus at 16mm and zoom in on detail very quickly without losing anything, and can do it fast. Not good enough for me for Movies, and portraits
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Not Good For Movies, Slow Focus

GREAT PERFORMANCE

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 versatile 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".

very nice lens

Bama, B&H Photo
23 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm just getting used to this lens. I mount it on the sony a65. Previously I've had the 16-50 fixed f-stop. (which I Love) on my a65. The 16-105 is a fast focus and very sharp. It increases the range, and is a well-built lens. I will use it for landscape and possibly portraits.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Best All Purpose Lens

RDGarch, Sony
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Aside from this lens not reaching the lowest of low F-stops, this lens does it ALL. From architecture wide angle photography and landscapes to portraits of people and objects with high detail to the sports shot from across the field. you can capture everything.
  • Pros: Wide angle focal length, and great zoom capacity.
  • Cons: i wish the f-stop was slightly lower maybe F2.8
