Pros: Small size, weight, sharpness in the center with some iris closing stops

Cons: Those that everyone already knows: sharpness and optical performance especially at TA, not very bright. I add the PZ that I find unbearable (especially because it does not store the last assigned value).

Opinion: What to say, it's a lens I took with the A6400, already conscious when buying all its limits, which I actually found. But it is a "must have" for the Sony APSC system as it makes your camera almost the size of a compact one. To be honest, in good light conditions and with priority iris snap fixed at f8, it's not bad even as sharpness (even at 16mm with which I managed to take nice selfies with my daughter). At more open diaphragms, it behaves in an acceptable/good way in the center with close subjects, a little worse with focus on distant elements. The edges, in that case become kneaded, but in my opinion it is not a problem as the beauty of a photo does not matter how sharp the frame is "in the lower right corner". However, I confirm that it has an undertonous yield at the low focal points. In absolute terms, however, it remains an underperforming lens. Instead, I find the PZ unbearable through the ring on the barrel. It is inaccurate and has too short a run. I would have found it more convenient to zoom in with coaxial command with the shutter button (type RX100 to be clear). Another unbearable thing, is the fact that when you "wake up" from the Standby you don't remember the last focal length value set. In my opinion, Sony should update this objective with a project that guarantees a better optical yield, in the same way as the 15-45 Canon or Fuji. It is a re-release that is offered with machine bodies such as the A6600 and the A6400....... and we will probably see it also on the new APSC coming out ... ahahhhahahahah For those who kit it with the camera, I immediately recommend combining it with a good fixed lens (sigma type) to appreciate the quality of the sensor.

Pros: super compact; power zoom; excellent optical performance for a kit lens; price; focus; Stabilization

Cons: distorts and vignettes at 16mm; some little chromatic aberration

Opinion: If you bought a sony with this lens avoid selling it. it is extraordinarily small and does not take up space in the bag (sometimes I put it in the pocket of the jacket to have it at hand) and unlike what many said, it has a good optical yield, especially in relation to the price at which it is offered. moreover compared to the classic 18-55 canon and nikon on which I put my hand this lens is more versatile. It's great for video thanks to the power zoom that allows you to control it even from a distance. autofocus is fine and same thing about stabilization. Moving on to the sore notes... vignette and distorts at 16mm, if you make videos or taken in jpeg you do not even notice, since the machine corrects all the defects of the lens. If you shoot in raw just let photoshop or lightroom do the same fixes. absolutely to have, even just as a backup lens

Pros: Small, light, stabilized, af fast, kit costs very little, quality more than decent

Cons: for me no one, given what it costs and its positioning

Opinion: Dignified optics, light, and stabilized. Closed the diaphragm a little by even good results. If you consider the price in kit and the fact that it is very small and with a very comfortable range, in my opinion it is a good lens to use when you want to stay light or to keep as an escort. Lr criticism towards this kit, are definitely unmotivated

Pros: compact, light, stabilized

Cons: It is an optic provided in kit, simple, but you know it and you can not expect both higher optics (quality and cost)!

Opinion: It is an optic provided in kit and combined with an excellent APS-C (my a6400), almost given away (the optics). It is clear that such an optics goes to stifle the enormous potential and quality of the 6400, in fact it is not intended to accompany the APSC forever, it is destined to be replaced as soon as possible with a better performing lens (I replaced it with Zeiss 16_35 f./4, heaven on earth...). Nothing stratospheric, but knowing how to use it (studying it and understanding it and not using it to "nose" as many do and then complain) you get good results, very pleasant. You can use it quietly, for photos of "everyday" and also for some nice shots avoiding critical situations of light. Better to close by 1 stop and stay on the f./5.6/8 to have good/dignified photos, I would say even at the corners. It's fine if you want a pocket-sized system or almost a pocket. The stabilizer does its good work without any problems. The AF of the 6400 has not been affected in the slightest by the use of this optics, always as fast and precise as a razor. Paraluce: it exists on the market, but it is so thin (1 cm) that it is irrelevant. FILTERS: it has the ability to use them, but you do not find many on the market with what diameter (I put a simple UV). In the gallery I have a couple of MORAL photos: keep it for a while, but sooner or later you will have to replace it. Hello Alberto

Pros: Size, weight, stabilized

Cons: Indecent optical quality

Opinion: Taken with the A6000 I was definitely expecting something more, really bad lens that returns poor quality caditing how good the sensor of the a6000 manages to return even today . I thought I could have the quality of a very good Apsc sensor in the size of a compact and, having as the main body an a7Rii, a second body performing and cheap. so it wasn't because this little good zoom is only the size because it looks bad as a wide angle up to 30 equivalent returning bad sharpness then in my case the loss of sharpness affects the various parts of the frame differently. Flat photos and free of microcontrast, poor grip on the flare or various reflections . To those who say that you have to settle because it is a kit lens or to those who consider this bottle bottom a good lens , I invite you to try the incredible fuji xc 15-45 , lens kit of amazing sharpness and microcontrast. Ultimately I consider it as scandalous as all Sony 'cheap' lenses except for the 18-135.
