Pros: Cost, Weight, Dimensions, Versatility, OSS

Cons: Brightness, Materials, Vignetting, Distortions, Chromatic aberrations, Poor AF

Opinion: Optical kit, usable by amateurs and newcomers in the field of photography. It costs very little to be a zoom AF, usually it is used at 100 € if not 90 (they literally pull it against you)... Poor materials of the part that expands, suffers from all the problems of pancakes and especially vignette at 16mm and is not very sharp at f / 3.5 must be set at least to 4. Noisy zoom, stabilizer useful for slightly longer exposures freehand, up to 1/10 if you have very firm hands / arms. Take it only if necessary or unique available in your area.

Pros: Cost, bulk, bulk

Cons: Vignetting, distortions, brightness

Opinion: Taken in kit with the A6000, it allows you to photograph immediately if you do not already have lenses available. As soon as you compare it with other lenses, you immediately notice its limitations. In the hands it looks like a toy. In RAW format vignetting and distortions are more than evident. In the past the bodies were combined with the well-known fifties... they were not ZOOM but at least they were valid and you kept them for life. This is a lens, in my opinion, to be replaced as soon as you have the opportunity.

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
