Great walkaround lens
from Silicon Valley, CA, USA
This Zeiss lens is a great walkaround lens and as a replacement for the kit lens. While a bit pricey, the improvement in image quality as compared to the kit lens (SEL1650 for my NEX6) is leaps and bounds. A f2.8 aperture would make this lens even better, but then the lens may end up too big and heavy to be useful as a walkaround lens.
Very sharp lens
from Los Angeles
Tested this lens on a6000. The pics are very sharp.

Great lens but heavy
from St. Louis
A really great lens living up to the Zeiss tradition. My only niggle about this lens is its weight. But, then again the weight is a result of how well made the lens is. Zoom and focus are tight, no lens creep

Pricey but a keeper
from New York
I've been waiting for a better quality daily lens for my NEX 7 to replace my kit and this one pretty much it. The lens is solidly built, light and good looking. Performance wise, very clear , fast and performs well on low lights. I was little bit hesitant because of the price but got it anyway. I brought it on my travel to Europe and so far have been satisfied with the results. My NEX 7 now has a perfect partner. I also have 35mm F1.8 Prime lens in addition to the standard kit.
Fantastic mid range zoom lens
By Mike S
This is my First Zeiss E-Mount lens. My previous lens was the 18-55mm Kit lens for the Sony C3. This new lens has some heft to it. I am an above average beginner camera person so I will tell you my impressions as a beginner. This lens produces extremely clear pictures, rich in colors, along with great contrast which produces very sharp pictures. Some people say in reviews that I read that it is slightly soft in the edges here and their. To me the pictures look perfect. I shoot only in jpeg with the sony A6000 camera. The camera may correct any small inperfections in the camera itself with jpegs. With the sony A6000 you get a very fast frame rate and with this lens 99.9 percent look cristal clear and in focus along with great color and contrast. I use to use the 18-55mm kit lens on the Sony C3 but this lens is definately superior. Abt had a great deal that if you buy this lens along with the Sony A6000 body you save $300. It was a great deal. The only negative is the size in carrying it around but I do not find this a problem for myself. I therefore highly recommend this lens and is a great combination when you use the Sony A6000
Brings out the full potential of the NEX7
from colorado USA
I searched high and low this year for a great lens for my NEX 7 that I have had since it was released. And this is truly one fantastic lens. It truly brings out the full potential of the NEX7, making it a fantastic travel camera. I pop iy in my bag with my iPad and macbook Pro and I am good to go without having to lug a ton of gear around. I own a Nikon D800, D7100, Fuji X100s, and my iPhone, and I have more fun with this lens and this camera combo than any of the others. The only drawback I have seen so far is autofocus in AF-C mode. At times the camera hunts and focus is slow. Otherwise no complaints whatsoever. It is truly great fun to shoot with this combo.
