Pros: Sharp, superb color, the right light, Zeiss, convenient focal length

Cons: Maybe a tad expensive, plastic?

Opinion: Superb sharpness for a lens that I liked to use a lot, Carl Zeiss lenses are a guarantee of churning out beautiful colors, maybe a lens of this price I would have expected an f / 4 aperture constant but the maximum focal length 80 mm remains a mica f/4.5 too bad, compared to the competition, for example I have the nikkor 16-85 that at 80 is already f/5.6! nuts fluid show a very good feelinganche although plastic gave me a good impression of solidity. My only regret after I moved to Nikon .... I would be curious to try it with my D7000

Pros: - Three-dimensionality, color rendering, brightness and sharpness of the images, already at full aperture: Do not fear comparisons with other targets of the same focal length and possibly beyond. C.ZeissT * is always a guarantee, even for this goal. At night he does not suffer from "intrusion" by spot lights, keeping a very fine detail. - Although it is not lightning, precise and accurate autofocus.

Cons: - Construction not up to the "glass". Materials (a part of the optical unit), medium quality. not tight tolerances: Light "ciottolio" (on all copies), if moderately shaken. - Manual Focus is not fluid. Price a bit 'too high compared to its mechanical performance.

Opinion: - It 'a lens that turning a blind eye on the rest (I personally have completely solved the "ciottolio" problem, lightweight Zoom game, with the "do it yourself"), really worth having, because of its excellent quality optics, at all focusing and aperture, with the ability to "force" with slow times, thanks to the combination with camera bodies already stabilizzati.- rating 9.5

Pros: Sharpness, colors, three-dimensional and versatility.

Cons: Materials and assembly to be improved.

Opinion: Objective very sharp already wide open, I use it very often and I am very satisfied, irreplaceable as all do. Three-dimensional image and return to the highest level. The focus is very pleasant. Unfortunately does not have the ultrasonic motor of focus (even if it remains accurate and fast) and the materials used to construct it does not make grace to the optical quality of the lens. My opinion is that a precisely to 16mm cartoon a bit (even if it is not anything serious).

Pros: Wide zoom range, fast autofocus despite the absence of SSM, sharpness, and especially three-dimensionality of the picture far superior to other KIT. to 80mm is still open to 4.5, which is ever found in very few other lenses.

Cons: the construction is not the best, plastic, ring of fire, if to be used manually, it is virtually unusable because of the hardness of drive. some chromatic aberration, a hint of distortion, and low-resolution angle at the minimum focal length of 16 mm.

Opinion: I found this lens with a discount of 55% in a common mediaworld. I replaced my a350 KIT 18-70 that really left something to be desired. I am very well, the wide range and good sharpness give me satisfaction. the front lens is not rotating support which allows you to use specific lens hood and polarizer, The most common use that I do is to large openings, well above the lens competitors, along with the stabilizer on the sensor avoid me to bring back the tripod. The building is not the best but the autofocus is very fast but not ssm. I would still recommend buying only under heavy discount. It is a lens that is worth 800 € ...
