Summary: If for sone reason you chose to get a different lens when you bought your nex e.g. The 16mm this is a great addition to your kit. Beautifully built. Great sharpness from 18+mm good focus speed. I use this lens lots for general photography as its nice and compact soon I will get the 18-200mm however I expect I will still use this for portraits (which it is great at) overall this a great lens Any questions please ask
Summary: My lens arrived as stated by the supplier. I found the lens to do all as claimed by Sony. However I ordered a "NEW" lens. I did not receive a new lens. No manufacturers packaging. Rear lens cap missing and a substitute cannon cap. Which does not fit. Held in place with an elastic band. Not very nice.
Summary: Kit lenses get a bad write up since they usually are somewhat inferior - an add-on to induce you to buy the camera until you can afford something better. This Sony lens is not so. I have two of them and they both perform beyond the kit lens expectation - very good indeed. They are not stellar lenses since you'd have to pay the price of the camera+ to even get a chance at that sort of lens but they are very usable for anyone with an e-mount camera - NEX.
Summary: Every so often you pick up something and instinctively know that someone has put a lot of time, effort, money and materials into it. This is such an item. Of course if you are reading this you already have an NEX camera or you are considering one therefore know that it is basically a baby SLR - without the SLR bit. It's a good idea when you think about it - use modern electronics to get rid of the mechanical mirror and make the camera smaller and easier to use.
Summary: Hallo, bin mit dem Artikel; Sony SEL-1855 18-55 mm E-Mount Objektiv in Silber sehr zufrieden. Habe es bisher noch nicht so oft nutzen können, weil mir einfach die Zeit fehlt, aber ansonsten bin ich aber voll zufrieden damit.
Summary: trotz der vielen Meckereien über dieses Objektiv vergebe ich hier 5 Punkte. Warum? Bitte überlegt Euch mal, dass dieses Objektiv zwar "bekunststofft" ist und tatsächlich leichte Verzeichnungen zu sehen sind... aber auf der anderen Seite leistet diese Optik (zumindest an meiner NEX-3) eine tolle Bildschärfe und bietet darüber hinaus eine integrierten SteadyShot (Verwacklungsschutz). Welcher andere Hersteller bietet so etwas für knapp 170 Euro an? Hm?
