This 3x zoom lens is the one normally bundled as part of a kit with Sony NEX cameras. As a result, it's normally pretty cheap to pick up separately, costing only £140. For that you get a compact lens with optical stabilisation. In this review, we'll take a look at how it performs.
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.
Easy To Use, Quality Construction
No Performance Improvement
Lens works great but I can only give it three stars because the lens came with some sort of spot inside the lens that I cannot clean out. It's either a grain of sand or something. I realize that there way have been a risk in purchasing a used lens. Other than that works great.
Sony should have never released this lens with the Nex 7. This is a cheapo lens that produces cheapo images and certainly isn't good enough for the sensor in either the Nex 7 or 6. I'm waiting for the new Zeiss 16-70
Not sharp, Poor Design
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.
lightweight, precisely machined, sharp, good contrast
too much pincushion at 55mm
Great camera. I have never had something like it. All I can say is amazing. The picture quality is awesame. I can capture just like I see with my own eyes, even in the dark place. This sounds so simple but not many manufacture have successfully done it. Thank you Sony!! I'm totally satisfying.
Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality, Interfaces Well With Camcorder
