Soft

  • Excerpt: Purple fringing is out of control. The lens is also pretty soft overall. I'd say it's overpriced for what it is.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

I like it

Bman, B&H Photo
16 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.

Very Sharp For Kit Lens

  • Summary: After using this lens for several years, I've always been amazed at how sharp the photos are, across all zoom ranges and apertures. This is just a kit lens - it shouldn't be that sharp - but it is.

OK starter lens

zotzgotz, Ebay
22 June 2014
  • Summary: good lens clear bright pictures. A good starter lens. Not the best but ok for everyday pictures. This is a nice kit lens for someone to use everyday. I have taken some good pictures outside with this , needs good lighting for inside. I keep this on my backup camera for quick snapshots when traveling. I would recommend this lens for a new photographer, it is simple to use and gives ok results.

Decent

J. Sova "HockeyTown guy", Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: Good lens, I bought it used because like most Sony products they are overpriced. I picked up a used NEX3N body used for 60 bucks so for 160 I got a darn good camera for everyday use :-) My high end is a Canon :-) Enough said....

Awful lens!

Alvaro, B&H Photo
4 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!
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Functional
