  • Summary: zoom is good. Good sony quality, auto focus is great on it, as with any other sony lens. Nice for far away shots, and with lens maxxed out, you can get nice blur in background.

A very good lens and at a reasonable price

John R., Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had the lens, which I use with the Sony A65, for about three weeks, and was immediately impressed with its light weight, and quality construction. I have tested it with close up images and surprised with the clarity of the pictures. Most of my initial shots have been used with the Auto setting, thus do not have a good idea of its full capabilities. I did use the auto with the lens set to max and received excellent results. At a distance of approx.

Great Optics, Ok plastics

Stan, B&H Photo
17 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I absolutely love this lens, the optics are difinitely worth more than $xxx, but construction is a bit of a letdown overall. Of course as for under $500 range, it's an awesome lens with an OK set of materials. I really like the way it performs. It is sharp throughout the entire zoom range and doesn't distort. At least not enough for it to be visible.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low distortion, Nice Bokeh, Sharp optics
  • Cons: Plastic Lens Mount, Rotating Front Element, Weak Casing

Filter rotates with focusing

George, B&H Photo
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: It's a good lens except for one annoying characteristic - the filter rotates when the lens is focused. This is not the case with my other two Sony DT lenses: SAL1680Z (Zeiss 16-80 - I LOVE this lens) and SAL35F18 (non-zoom 35 mm). I use flip-out lens-caps on all my lenses I highly recommend those), and it's a bit strange on this lens to have the flipped out lens-cap rotate as you focus.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Filter Rotates With Focus

Surprising Optical Quality

Dennis Atwell, Amazon
17 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this lens on the strength of reviews I have read on various websites, and I was not disappointed. For a lens at this price the quality of the optics is superb. The SAM focus motor is smooth and quiet and the lens is quite compact. It's all plastic construction is a bit of a concern, in particular the plastic mount, however thats what keeps it lightweight. Regardless of the materials used the fit and finish of the lens is very nice.
