Great lens but not perfect

Bob, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens now for a few years on my alpha55......now on an alpha65. A major step up from the kit lenses and i use it 99 percent of the time. Sharpness has been overall very good and I use It with confidence. City scapes have shown some barreling or pincushion which I could correct in photoshop. My last trip to some ruins in cancun presented me with a real problem with this lens. The Mayan ruins were amazing , extensive, and of great photographic interest.

Great kit lens, Sony's should come with this standard.

  • Summary: Probably my favorite "first lens" for any kit. I sold my Nikon system and bought a sony dSLT and had to start over. This lens was my primary choice as I shoot 95% of all shots with this lens. Excellent range for the price and very nice quality/sharpness.

Sony 18-250mm

  • Summary: I have had this lens for a while, and these are the only cons i found. There is vignetting on some of my images, distortion on many, in some cases struggles to find focus, and very loud when it does. This lens is nice for a first lens, but definitely not a pro lens. These are my warnings.
  • Pros: zoom, design
  • Cons: vignette, struggles to find focus, noise of focus, distortion

Great range of coverage

Paul Hollebeke, Amazon

  • Summary: Great range of coverage; this is one of the best all-purpose lenses I own…. it does get a bit heavy at the end of a hike, but performs well… I have to note and agree with other reviews that it is a bit louder than my other lens when it zooms but the performance of the lens gets me to look past it.

Perfect for everyday shooting

TCGOE, Adorama
8 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I am using this lens exclusively on my Sony A77. I find this lens has all the zoom range I need, just enough wide angle for the indoor group shots and scenery, and enough sharpness at long zooms. I was initially concerned about the modest speed (f3.5-f6.3) but they proved unfounded, since the camera is so capable. I like the size of the barrel in my hand; bigger lenses are too large to be comfortable, and prevent the camera from resting on its base.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

workhorse lens

  • Excerpt: A bit heavy ,but to be expected for this range. Razor sharp images. Just add Sony 16-50 2.8 lens and your set for just about every situation.
  • Pros: Great Value, Improves Picture Quality, Interfaces Well With Camcorder
