Summary: I have this lens for more than two years and the image is excellent. Even though I don't use the autofocus mode this feature is pretty fast. The only think that I would like to have is more aperture when I use the zoom. I recommend it!
Excerpt: I thought long and hard about getting this lens. It's 50% more expensive than the Sony a6000 body, so it's not a small investment. But I took it, along with a 38mm, each attached to a Sony a6000 body, on a photo workshop in Cuba this spring. It's heavy. It's somewhat bulky. It is worth it? Yes!
Decent for bright outdoor manual settings but overpriced

Summary: So, I bought this lens used for half of the price listed here. I am not a professional photographer of any sorts and basically used my camera to take family pictures. I used this with my Sony A6000.
Summary: I took this lens to London on vacation and it was perfect! It was light compared to traditional zoom lenses and even attached to my Sony a6000 was able to fit in a purse size camera bag that I carried around.
Best lens available for the Sony mirrorless APS-C cameras.

Summary: Optically very impressive for a lens of this range of focal lengths. Fit & finish is excellent. It's unfortunate that the lens is larger than the camera, but that's simply the nature of good optics and small mirrorless cameras.

Summary: I'll simply add my experience with this lens to others who gave it four or five stars. Great all-round lens that is on my a6000 75% of the time. Reasonably sharp and quite versatile. The only downsides are zoom creep if you are pointing down at any focal length other than 18mm with lock engaged.
Great lens....needs external flash attachment for NEX-6 to avoid shadow on picture.

Summary: Great all in one close and zoom lens. Takes excellent pictures. There is a problem, however, with the built in flash on the NEX 6 camera and this lens. The lens creates a shadow on the picture which is totally unacceptable to me.
