Pros: Lightweight, compact, stabilized, good autofocus

Cons: dark, poor yield at 210mm

Opinion: He was part of my kit for a long time, paired with the 16-50 PZ and 50mm f1.8 Olympus that I fished from an old analog kit. To be an optical kit aimed at beginners is really good, stabilization manages to compensate well for its ridiculous brightness. And brightness is its weak point. An f6.3 I can accept from 300mm up, but not on 210 mostly for APS-C. They could have done it slightly bigger and earned at least one f5.6 to make it really perfect for novice amateurs

Pros: Lightness, compactness, speed and silence AF, stabilization, optical yield (from f. 8 onwards), solidity, price

Cons: Dark (but on the ML does not notice it almost), optics not excellent under f. 8 to all focal (poor to T.A.!),

Opinion: Taken used for 110 euros to complete the endowment of my Sony a5000, I was immediately surprised by the speed and quietness of the focus. The stabilization also surprised me by giving me still shots at the maximum focal (about 315 mm. in equivalent shoals on F.F.) with shooting times up to 1/60 freehand. Disappointing at T.A., it becomes unobtrusive at f. 8 and good over f. 8 up to f. 16-f. 18; then it expires a little bit because of the diffraction. The brightness of the environment also has a bit of an impact on the yield of the lens: in good light conditions, excellent shots come out, in low light or in the absence of contrast (grey or foggy sky) do not always come out decent shots, not even mounted on tripod. I also used it in combination with extension tubes, for close-up, but here the result was almost always disappointing because the goal, in itself, does not express that microcontrast that only the real macro goals offer. For trips and excursions, when you need to go light, however, it gives nice satisfactions and therefore I recommend it as long as you do not pay it more than 140/150 euros.

Pros: building materials; fast and silent focus; light; compact; Stabilization

Cons: lack of sharpness; price without discounts; you have to understand it to make good shots

Opinion: I took this lens during Black Friday on amazon taking advantage of the cashback sony, as a result I paid 150 euros. as soon as mounted I was amazed by the silence of the focus (so much so that my father asked me if he was an ultrasonic). The fact that it is lack of light I do not consider it a flaw because it is a kit lens at the end of the day. after the first tests I was left with bitterness in the mouth, very little sharpness (in comparison the canon 55-250 stm looks like an L series) and chromatic aberrations that make it difficult to photograph small subjects in the backlight. After a few days of use you learn to use and appreciate it because it is not a lens to throw away. it's convenient to use, and as long as you don't exaggerate with the crop it has a decent yield. in conclusion if you find it under 200 euros is a must-have because in combination with 16-50 you are covered at all the focal points with very little expense and a lot of compactness. otherwise if you have a bigger budget bet on 18-135 mm or 70-200 f4 if you are ambitious EDIT: now the 70-350 that represents a quality alternative if you have a higher budget

Pros: Price, construction

Cons: Dark

Opinion: I bought this lens at for 110 euros (thanks to Sony cashback) ahead of the trip to South Africa. I didn't expect magic, but instead it turned out to be a great travel companion on safaris where I never took it off. Solid construction given the price. He gave me great pictures. Clearly it is dark, especially at high focal points, but with light or iso car the shot takes it home. Recommended for those who start with longer focal points and don't want to invest at least 1k for a used 70-200 f4

Pros: Light, compact, price

Cons: Dark, not very sharp at TA

Opinion: I have been using this lens for a year and a half and for a long time I have not used it because I did not fully understand its potential. In my opinion it is the right companion of adventure for those who are at the beginning and want to experiment portraits and why not fauna. If you respect small measures such as, shoot only in good light conditions and with openings on f7,f8 the lens is very sharp and clean. It has no distortions or aberrations. Limits arise when you are looking for speed in the shot and you are in low light conditions. There the drop in yield is dramatically evident.
