A satisfactory compact power zoom

DanlJ, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: With any lens, the question is what is the expected use of the images made. In this case, it's snapshots. I bought this lens to replace the original Sony 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 glass zoom on my wife's NEX-5. It's half the length, and about a third the weight. The power zoom makes camera handling much easier than the manual zoom of the lens it replaced.Informal sharpness testing at max and min zoom with a lens-testing chart, viewed at 1: 1 shows this lens to be sharper than the...

Better than nothing

  • Summary: I've never had a lens that had this bad barrel distortion and vignetting at the wide end. Absolutely awful. Even for a kit lens. That being said, at pretty much every other focus length this lens is good for a kit lens. I do like how compact it is. Good for video.

  • Summary: I like this lens the most because its more compact than the other ones I bought. Broke mine last month so instead of paying 4-500 on a new replacement I bought a refurb camera nex 3n with the lens for 286 dollars from Sony.

Lens survives really bad packaging

WildBill, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: The lens was everything it should be, functioned as advertised. I was very disappointed in the packaging. The lens dimensions are approximately 2 inches in diameter and 1 inch tall. It was packed in a 6x4x4 box (a good one) loosley wrapped in a small piece of bubble wrap, no tape involved. When I opened the box the bubble wrap was on one end of the box leaving about two thirds of the boxes volume empty.

Good Value In a Lens

  • Summary: These Sony lenses are a good value. While they will not get as good a rating from professional lens testing equipment, you will not see the difference when taking digital snapshots.

... stars because of its acceptable image quality in a pretty small size and light weight

Kunlun Wang, Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: I would give the lens itself 4 stars because of its acceptable image quality in a pretty small size and light weight. However I wasn't happy when I opened the box and saw there was all haze and dirt on the rear glass--even though I've seen from the previous comment that they shipped this lens without the rear cap. It took me half an hour cleaning it before I tried it on my camera body. Luckily there was not a big problem.
