Best Buy Customer Reviews

Great single solution (almost) lens Posted by: from: on A very good lens. It's OSS is phenomenal. It just can't be used with the built-in flash because it's big enough to cast a shadow. So if flash might be needed on a photographic excursion one has to also carry the 16-50 kit lens. But flash is seldom wanted, anyway. At 18mm there is some distortion, but going up just a few mm makes it better while retaining f/3.5. OSS wise, I've shot fairly sharp pictures at 200mm and 1/15 second, hand held! Two pictures, both taken at 200mm and cropped/resized to 1620x1080, are attached. The moon shot is the sharpest I've ever got.

A nice replacement for multiple zoom lenses Posted by: from: on I purchased this lens for a trip to Morocco. Though it was pricey at $800, it was worth the investment. Having this 18-200mm zoom meant that I could replace the 16-50mm and 55-210mm zooms that I used previously with my Sony NEX-6. This not only saved weight and space, but I no longer had to change lenses and then deal with the resulting dust issues on the camera sensor. In terms of quality, my photos appear to be uniformly sharp at both the center and in the corners of the images. I am completely satisfied with this new Sony lens.

A great complement Posted by: from: on i tried the kit lens with the Sony Nex-5 and SEL1855. Loved it. Upgraded to an A5100 with the SEL1650. I liked the camera but found the kit lens lacking (especially at the widest settings). So, I tried the the SEL55210. I loved the lightness and image quality from this other kit lens. However, I found myself having to change lenses frequently. So, I opted for the SEL18200LE. Image quality is great, much lighter than the SELP18200 or original SEL18200. Those just add so much bulk to the camera. With this lens, I can really play with depth of field in my pictures. The photos have been great.

Great lens with minor flaws Posted by: from: on I spent 2 months trying to figure out if I wanted to shell out the cash for this lens. I committed when I had to take a trip and didn't want to carry 2 different lenses. The lens did not disappoint. I have had it for 2months now and I still love it. The wide range is perfect for a variety of shots and alleviates the need for carrying additional products. The downside as mentioned in other reviews is the "creep". The lens will open if camera is pointing down(gravity always wins) but this can fixed by hitting the "lock" button on the lens. The zoom seems a bit stiff but I don't mind that because it makes it easier to adjust in small increments when taking pics.

Great all-purpose lens. Posted by: from: on I bought this lens for a European trip, to have one lens that would go from wide angle to telephoto. It is a perfect for a one lens system. It was light and compact enough so that I could carry the camera for hours without noticing it. The zoom was a little rough at first, but smoothed out and was smooth after a little use.

Great Buy Posted by: from: on I am very satisfied with this lens. Recently shot a wedding, and a few other shots being a newer photographer. I really enjoy this lens replacing the kit 55-210mm. Not 100% as sharp as I would like but it's a minimal complaint. I have been able to capture some pretty decent shots, even as a novice. It might be slightly on the more expensive side, but again, starting out it is worth it. Makes learning a lot more easy.

The perfect walk around lens Posted by: from: on Part of the reason I went mirrorless was for a smaller camera. My old DSLR, I carried three lenses just to do everything. I put this on my Sony a6300 instead of the kit lens, and I can happily walk around all day with a solid mix of wide angle and zoom. It's a little heavier than the kit lens, but it's so much better to only carry one all around versatile lens instead of three.

Love it Posted by: from: on This lens replaces the 16-50 & the 55-210 in my bag. I don't have to be switching lenses on and off out in the field any longer. It stays on my camera 100% of the time .. picture quality is very good ;)
