    I'm still learning as I go on photography but I love the additional zoom capability this lens provides and it doesn't hinder image quality whatsoever.

    This Lens has a great zoom, although it is kind of top heavy when you have it on the A6000 because the camera is pretty light.

    Got this for Sony A6000 and does a fine job with the zoom though gets a bit slow and bit trouble with auto focus when fully zoomed.

    Purchased with the Sony Alpha 5000 camera and really improves on the optical zoom. Easy to swap in and out with the standard lens and feels secure when connected.

    Zoom ring is too stiff to be useful

    I bought this to go with my NEX camera. The zoom ring was way too stiff to make it a useful lens, particuarly if your shooting sports.

    One of the biggest things I look for when buying a camera is a great zoom. And, all around this Sony camera is great, and so is this zoom that comes along with it. Compact yet powerful. Pristinely clear.

    Good rubberized grip on the zoom ring. Snug but smooth on zoom. Also, the extended length allows for a good grip on the camera if the body is too small for your hands. Have not tried with video but don;t imagine it to be a problem. No major noise that I can detect when zooming in and out.

    This products zoom is great and the pictures are still really clear. I wish I could afford a bigger one though. Lenses get expensive and this one was on sale.

    Solid construction, good mid- to long general purpose zoom for the Sony E-Mount cameras. Wish the maximum aperature was faster, but cranking up the camera ISO offsets this for most situations. Recommend buying it bundled with the Sony camera to get a substantial discount.

    Best value for zoom e mount lens. A little grainy when max zoom and moderately lit room. Better results outside with direct sunlight.

    I purchased this lens as part of a package deal when I bought my Sony a6000 camera. It has some limitations (low light, not tack sharp), but overall was a great lens to begin shooting with. I paired it with an Olympus 1.7x teleconverter, which increased the zoom capabilities, and also seemed to improve the image quality (sharpness and compression). I've been very pleased with the performance of this combination.

    This camera lense is great to take pictures. It has a great zoom and blurs out the background. It also works well videos but that takes some time to adjust because the focus.

    The zoom works great, and makes portraits look amazing with the aperture priority on the Sony A6000
