  • Excerpt: I use the lens with the NEX-5N. In the normal range, around 24 to 40 mm, this lens competes well with prime lens I have from other excellent manufacturers. Typical of zoom lenses, the extremes are not quite as good, but fine for non-critical use.

decent kit lens

  • Summary: Other reviews at Amazon for this lens are a bit mixed - with some raving and others criticizing the image quality from this lens. I think there is a bit of truth in both sides of this.

Excellent Kit Lens

Photofunch, B&H Photo
21 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I usually opt not to use kit lenses as they are of lesser optical quality than what I expect but the Sony kit lens is the exception. Very good performance overall and the OIS works well. The lens is very light in weight and balances well on the NEX-5 and NEX-7.

  • Excerpt: Excellent build quality.Light weight, good for street work, especially given the image stabilization. Will do the job nicely until (I hope)Zeiss produces an e-mount zoom of same size.

Good lens to get for your NEX if you don't have it

W. Deptuch, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought it for my NEX VG10 even thought I have the 18-200 because it lightened up the camera and allows you to do a dolly zoom or track zoom easier then its bigger brother.

Nice lens

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 December 2011
  • Summary: I've read a number of reviews that were a little critical of this lens but that seems to be fairly common with any kit lens. For my needs, this is a great walking around lens. It focuses quickly and precisely and gives me good photos. On top of that, I bought it used and got a great price.
