5 out of 5 eggsExcellent everyday use zoom lens for Sony NEX

Pros: If you are frustrated with the SEL1855 Kit zoom lens especially with subpar results like barrel distortions at the wide-end look no further.

It beats the kit lens in almost all distortion related issues and has more zoom range viz. 16mm to 70mm.

This lens is an ideal kit lens replacement and will improve results across the board. The lens is sharper as well as almost distortion free.

OSS works well, and focusing speed is pretty good.

It is not very heavy, about 25% heavier than the kit zoom lens.

Constant aperture across the zoom range is a great feature especially when zooming in a movie.

Finally the build quality is better than the kit lens.

Cons: The minimum distance to focus is almost 1ft which is a bit problematic.

Not much change in Image Quality when compared to kit lens.

Other Thoughts: The lens is made in Thailand, and comes with a certificate of inspection.

It takes 55mm filters.

Comes with a Zeiss sticker ;)
