Handling and features A common complaint with Sony's NEX camera system is the size lenses need to be due to the large APS-C sized imaging sensor. This new E16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens may be the answer to that issue.
The Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS broke a couple of records but unfortunately not in the positive sense. Its uncorrected distortion and vignetting figures are nothing short of insane. So Sony obviously doesn't want the lens to be used without enabled aberration compensation.
This lens’ photo and video picture quality is quite good. However, potential buyers should be aware that a distinct motor noise can be heard on any video segments in which the lens is zoomed.
I preordered it a couple of months ago and it just arrived from Sony.ca this week. The images produced by the lens (except when zoomed in all the way) have some of the worst distortion and barreling I have seen.
Small and compact
Distortion. Almost unusable on older NEX5.
Does what it's suppose to.
it sounds when zooming in and out. is it normal?
No delays, the lens were in great condition.
Lightweight and functional, this seems to suffer from glitches in that the cmaera from time to time does not recognise the lens. Removing lends and refitting solves this. I would question how air-tight it is as it seems prone to letting dust into the camera. When it works, good.
Excellent product. Perfect replacement the one I managed to smash. Brilliant lense. Takes fabulous portrait shots with amazing clarity. Far cheaper than Sony's site!
I purchased this lens to mate up to a used Sony NEX 5R I purchased. I'm really pleased with the quality of the photos I've gotten with the lens. My SLR is a Nikon 750D so I'm used to a really good quality output from my camera. I'm seeing very good results and that's impressive.
Exactly what I wanted!
It was exactly what I needed for my Sony alpha 6000.
