Very Low IQ

Swift, Amazon

  • Summary: I had this lens for over 3 years but hardly ever touched the camera because the pictures were so unimpressive; it's relatively sharp however poor image quality, lousy in low light and everything looks to be on the gray side.

  • Summary: Good condition as advertised. Impressed with delivery time. Product wise, very nice lens. A definite must have for beginner photographers especially. The clarify of this lens is much better than the 16-50. Highly recommend this lens.

Their higher end lenses are excellent quality and very expensive

J. Thurman, Amazon
7 February 2016
  • Summary: Sony has an interesting way of making lenses. Their lower end lenses are really low end and cheaply made. Their higher end lenses are excellent quality and very expensive.

Average Lens

  • Excerpt: This is the standard kit lens included with many of the Sony NEX cameras. It offers decent versatility, however, it is fairly slow and offers noticeable fringing and coma. Beware not to shoot anything too sharp with this, or in too low light without a tripod.

6 November 2015
  • Excerpt: This is exactly what I needed. My friends got me this for my birthday because I am filming a documentary with my Sony Nex VG-10 where I am filming every day.

  • Excerpt: Purple fringing is out of control. The lens is also pretty soft overall. I'd say it's overpriced for what it is.

I like it

Bman, B&H Photo
17 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm an amateur and maybe this isn't a high end lens, but I have really enjoyed using it for several years. I got it with a NEX5 but now use it with my a6000. It is a handy lens to have when I don't feel like carrying all of my other lenses around.

Awful lens!

Alvaro, B&H Photo
5 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Clear and Sharp report other users... Probably at the very center and moderate apertures. But the edges are a little worse than awful. And I seldomly use the widest aperture for the very same reason. Hands down, the worse lens I've ever tried. Shame on Sony.. how dare they!
