Pros: Exceptional sharpness, weight and small size, reduced lengthening, LIGHTNING AF.

Cons: Brightness just enough

Opinion: I have owned a Sony A6400 for three months that I had purchased with the 16-50 kit lens to make mostly videos, since I already own a Canon reflex for photos. I made beautiful videos, but when I dared to take pictures, I immediately noticed the bad quality, enlarging even to 100% I noticed "heartosiness" of the images and total distortion at the edges, which seemed blurry. Very disappointed with the photographic aspect, however important to me, and after hearing various opinions, both online and personal, which attributed the very poor quality to the lens, I determined to replace the optics, and I bought the 18-135 f. 3.5/ 5.6, however, which everyone said was inbright. As if by all, everything changed! Little on the video side, cmq improved, but hugely from the photographic side. Unprecedented image quality and definition, exceptional sharpness, amazing details, autofocus so fast to another planet. The qualities of the machine were "castrated" by the bad optics kit, and the new lens allows you to make the most of the qualities of the A6400. Light and solid optics, stabilized, and low brightness and compensated by the possibility of climbing with iso to at least 2500 without any problem. I also purchased the lens during an offer at a considerable discount. I am very satisfied, great purchase, what a tip.

Pros: Sharpness Compact Versatility

Cons: Price.... Not very bright

Opinion: I State that I prefer the maximum sharpness and consequently I always try the objectives that reflect this feature without getting too economically. I have owned the fixed Sigma 28 F 2.8 and Sigma 30 f 2.8 of which I was fully satisfied, later I switched to the Sony 18 105 F 4 with which I had a contraked relationship as to sharpness never convinced me too much..... And hence the breakthrough, I managed to regain the clear clarity I was looking for, I absolutely regret the two fixed Sigma indeed.... Comparing and crossing shots the Sony I find it much sharper. MTF tests are always sharper than the Sony Zeiss 16 70 and Sony 18 105 F4. As if not enough has a focal range of all respect that allows you to leave the other lenses at home. Its little brightness has never created me any problem as I prefer panoramas and in low light conditions at the lower focal length is still maintained on a value of 3.5-4 plus being stabilized allows me to shoot with relatively low times . Very Compact and what not just has the switch on the AF/MF barrel. Only downside I think is actually the price definitely high.

Pros: Compact and light for its focal length; Materials and sensation to the touch; sharpness and colour rendering; Autofocus and OSS very efficient.

Cons: Soft angles to the minimum focal; Chromatic aberration at TA, but correct in the room (or in post production).

Opinion: It is the lens that I expected as a travel handyman, I would say that for this use is perfect. It is very well coupled, and balanced, like weight and clutter to my A6300, I can literally carry them "around my neck" for a whole day without fatigue (together with two spare batteries and a CPL filter). Excellent image quality, much higher than the two kit lenses. Absolute practicality. I highly recommend to those who like me prefer not to change too many optics during the exits with the machine, without sacrificing the final quality.

Pros: Sharpness, great versatility, construction, compactness

Cons: Price

Opinion: The community despises this goal, but in my opinion it is wrong. For the use that one makes it: an excellent all do without having claims in low-light or portrait (there even if you have a fixed F4 you can not do both). Excellent stabilization and contrast. The focal equivalent (27-200) allows you to essentially make the composition you want. Very solid, compact and light. The variable aperture is not a problem also because it is difficult to use the lens at minimum apertures (less than very special cases). Only real flaw is the cost-considerable-but there the only one is to wait and look for a good deal. If one only takes pictures, this whole life compared to the Zeiss 16-70 and the Sony 18-105.

Pros: Detail at the remarkable center (even at the extreme Tele), versatility, solid mechanical construction, limited protrusion of the barrel to the maximum tele

Cons: Brightness (but for that there are the fixed), detail in the suburbs (but that you can ask for more at a handyman zoom?)

Opinion: Here he is here in my hands this handyman Buietto, which so little enthusiasm aroused at the time of the announcement. In fact, the numerical characteristics do not tickle the most impelled fantasies of the amateur (f 3.5 to 18 mm, but then just put your hand on the zoom ring to see the entire upper right away), but you also have to consider the general role of This lens. Taken in hand the 18-135 from an idea of solidity and construction well realized. It seems sturdier than the ultra-light Zeiss 16-70, not so much for the heavier weight (however well balanced on the A6500) as for the good feeling it returns by rotating the focal ring. Rotation all in all limited, since in a quarter turn you move from maximum wide to maximum tele. Of reflection also the elongation of the barrel is limited; Even null until 24mm! Very convenient (for those who use it) the AF-MF switch button on the lens. For me this zoom replaces the Zeiss 16-70, which I greatly appreciated, but which I always used as a travel handyman. Handyman for handyman, better one with greater excursion and that maybe allow to leave at home even the 55-210. The only perplexity was the surrender regarding contrast and tightness to the backlight, but sincerely in these very first releases, I did not notice any glaring differences. Also with regard to the definition I think two similar objectives: detailed in the center and much softer in the periphery. Of the 18-135 I was favourably impressed with the surrender even to the extreme tele. In the end I am well satisfied with the change and versatility of this 18-135.
