Summary: Sharp! Crisp! Beautiful! Would recommend lens filter for protection. Do not get the tiffen one. At night it makes all the lights in the background glance off the glass with a light house effect
Summary: I researched this lens exstensively before I purchased it, and I finally got it at at a reasonable price (under $400.00) .Supply & demand being what it is, the price gouging on the decent Sony Lenses & Flashes has been RIDICULOUS!
Excerpt: This is to replace my kit lens for my A57. I can not belive the difference its mades. Images come out sharp and clean. I also have a Tamron 18-270 which i just love but decided to go with Sony Brand on this one and I am very pleased .
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: I shoot the a58 and woth this glass the results are very very good! Look at it like this the camera controls your grain and color depth,and the lens is that sharpness you look for in every photo.There is no need to waste money on an expensive body if you only take pictures of families.in fact I...
Excerpt: This was the kit lens that came with my Alpha 77. The lens is equivalent to the super expensive $1998.00 Sony/Zeiss 24-70/2.8 but at a very reasonable price. The 16-50 is a APS-C/Crop sensor lens and it's the full frame equivalent of a 24-75/2.8.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Its fast and accurate and shoots beautifully. I cannot give this lens enough praise

Summary: I used this for my Sony A77 .. its an absolute beast. I was able to compare it to the to the zeis 16-80 and well... i prefer this over the zeis tenfold. Its fast and accurate and shoots beautifully. I cannot give this lens enough praise ;D
Excerpt: I have used this lens in low light situations in air craft museums. The images are razor sharp with fantastic color. This lens sees every detail. I have used it on my A65 and A77 in other situations and the results are the same sharp detail and color.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: WOW! This is my carry around lens on my A65 now. I see no reason to change it out often. Especially since the image quality is amazing. Family pics indoors, YES. Landscape outdoors, YES. Absolutely LOVE this lens.
