Good for a Zoom
Posted by: OldNoob from: East Coast on
This Lens is somewhat costly , though half that of similar CZ zoom lenses.
The image quality is very good for a zoom lens, although to truly appreciate it, it's best if your camera can produce sharp RAW files.
For example the Sony a580 produces slightly soft RAW files compared to other Sony cameras with the same pixel count., match the 16-50mm lens up with this camera and you wont be seeing the full potential of what that lens can do.
However,,match it up with an a77 a700 or a900 and you will be very very pleased!

I bought this lens for my A58, which I eventually plan to replace with the A77. I love it. It's definitely heavy and the weight distribution is a little off with the smaller camera, but it takes great photos and is very smooth. Can't wait to use it with the A77, as everything I've read is exceptional.
