Summary: I bought the Sony a5100 body no lens. I wanted a compact zoom lens just so happen on was for sell used but never used. I took the camera on vacation to Vegas. the lens performed great in low light and bright light, very sharp clean prints I saved about 200 getting it from E-bay
Different filter diameter from other Sony E mount lenses.

Summary: Keep in mind that Sony SELP1650 needs smaller 40.5 mm filters because if it's special retractable power zoom design. All the other sony E mount lenses use 49 mm filters. So extra cost will be demanded. The lens is small as a pancake lens but considerably heavier. The quality for its cost is great. It is a very convenient lens for an average user. The range of focal length is typical of a camera kit lens. Not a real wide lens neither a telephoto lens.
Summary: An outstanding kit lens. I was looking for a lens that I could use on my NEX 5N when traveling that would make it small enough to be convenient to carry around. I already own a bunch of primes for this camera, including the 16mm which is a great size and quality, but a 16 can be a bit wide for some things. This lens is only slightly larger then the 16 yet it offers a range to 50mm (making it a 24- 74mm when you convert it to it's 35mm equivalent).
