        Camera lenses play a pivotal role in image capture to the extent that an average camera with a good lens will take better photos than a high-end camera with a mediocre lens.

      sony selp1650 e pz 16-50mm f35-56 oss e - mount zoom lens is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 45.
      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amateur says it works like a charm This lens came bundled with my nex3 model camera. I have only ever had point-and-shoots prior to this. Since I enjoy taking close-ups, I thought I'd immediately have to splurge on a macro lens to be happy, but this is proving to be a useful lens. Fiddling with the settings, I have managed to take great photos outside and decent ones inside. I do find that when I'm trying to caputre things at a distance, I have to switch to telephoto lens, but almost always switch back to this one. Maybe my limited experience makes me a dumb novice, but I think it's great for the price as an all-purpose lens.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Good" lens for everyday shooter I bought a NEX-6 that came with this lens. I LOVE the NEX-6, but only like this lens. I never use it unless I want a camera and have no room for a camera bag. It is convenient at best... and frustrating at worst. Distortion correction is ALWAYS ON with this lens... that alone should tell you something. I like it for photography and hate it for video. I get strange lookin pincushion distortion that ruins my panning shots when in video mode. It operates reasonably distortion-free once you zoom to 22mm or further. Having the wide end of this lens to use is nice when you can't take a step back, but anything beyond 22mm should be ok if you have any straight lines to keep straight. Like most E-Mount lenses, you are paying for compactness and convenience, if you want high-quality optics for your NEX, get the LA-EA1 for photo or the LA-EA2 for video.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK kit lens This lens came with my A6000 mirroless, my first experience with such a camera. Normally I lug around my Nikon D7000 with an 18-300 mm zoom. Took this camera and lens on a vacation to northern Italy. Still learning the camera, so results could be my inexperience. Overall an OK lens. Pretty sharp overall. Would prefer a bit faster. However, the bokah is pretty nice. But I do HATE, HATE, HATE the power zoom. I hated it on point-and-shoots, and I hate it on this lens. Can't find the lever easily, and cannot fine-tune with the precision of a manual zoom.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK purchase, does what I need it to do The lens is an OK lens, would prefer a manual zoom though. The lens came with the camera, a Sony a6000. This is an amazing camera. I have a full complement of professional Canon Cameras as I am a sport shooter. This camera and the 16-50 lens will be my choice for shooting Basketball this season and for Track and Field. For my general overall shooting the a6000 and 16-50 is the go to choice and I am never without if I am out and about.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smart compromise I got the E PZ 16-50mmas the kit lens with a Nex 5R in early 2013. Before that I was using the 18-55 mm kit lens with a first-generation Nex-5. My first impressions were inevitably influenced by the comparison: - the 16-50 is significantly smaller and lighter than the 18-55. I love this, because compactness is a high priority for my needs. With this lens I had a truly pocketable camera, like the old Nex with the 16mm pancake, but with a versatile zoom instead. - the lens struck me as visibly sharper than the old kit. I hadn't updated the firmware of the 18-55 for phase focussing, and the new lens came witth this capability as native. And the old body didn't have phase focus at all, so the combination 5R+16-50 was notably faster to focus and produced sharper images than the Nex-5 + 18-55. - This is where the good news ended. I started discovering some of the lens's deficiencies. It produces less even focus from centre to periphery: while sharpness in the centre is higher, the corners more visibly lose fine detail than on the older kit. - Image quality challenges are most prominent at the wide end: at 16mm the RAW (ARW) image is much more distorted than the fixed-length 16mm pancake. It can look almost like 'fish-eye' (especially with urban shots with lots of off-centre straight lines). - There is also heavy vignetting - darkening of the periphery. In addition to the gradual darkening, a completely black circular vignette can occur from the thinnest add-on like a simple filter in front of the lens, or a (properly wide) lens hood. As the corners get less light and less detail, noise becomes more apparent there, even at moderate ISO values like 400-800. Any low-light shots of detail-rich scenes at the wide end of the zoom would disappoint with below-average image quality. Not what one would expect from Sony?.. -The workaround: shooting in JPEG produces, counter-intuitively, better images than RAW. How can this be? Simply, Sony are aware of the lens limitations and the in-camera conversion includes correction algorithms, that largely neutralise the geometric distortion and the darkening of corners. - This is when I discovered Lens Profils in Lightroom. I had never used them before, because other lenses needed less correction. With the correct lens profile for the 16-50 lens, post-processing corrections on the PC are even better than the in-camera ones. From 'bad' originals you can get results anywhere from 'acceptable' to 'very good'. The lens-specific corrections cover not only distortion and vignetting, but also chromatic aberration (colour fringing) and fine-tuning all parameters can produce crisp, excellent looking images. Conclusion: Knowing the lens limitations and applying the right post-processing corrections allows you to deliver high quality images with the E PZ 16-50mm. I own a number of higher-quality Sony and non-Sony lenses, prime (fixed-length) and zooms - but nothing beats the humble 'kit zoom' for the combination of versatility and compactness that makes it my go-to lens for all situations when I don't carry a camera bag and need a camera in my pocket or in my laptop case.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unfair reputation? This was one of two lenses I got when I initially purchased my a6000. I'm pretty nocturnal and, to be honest, I pretty rapidly got sick of and replaced it, even though I kept it. The slow aperture just left a lot to be desired and I didn't really find its low light performance to be overly exceptional. I was pretty disappointed. Barring the release of a cost-effective a6000s, many of us will be choosing such cameras for our all-purpose carry around, and that means struggling with light a bit. Slow apertures leave a bit to be desired. I've been playing with it again a good deal recently. I still harbor a pretty similar opinion of its low light performance. Though, as long as you don't mind not achieving a proper exposure (which, at night, is sometimes more accurate than what the light meter thinks is "properly exposed", anyway, but that is really beside the point - you can't increase the exposure quite as readily without relying on slow shutter speeds and high ISOs, the point being)... so it is definitely far from ideal as an action shooter at night. Long shutter speed stills on a tripod? Not as bad. You can get some great images out of it, in terms of that. Lately, where I've found it really excels after giving it another chance, is (duh, obviously) in good light at apertures between f/5.6-11. Ideally I've been trying for shots at f/8 or f/11. Under these conditions, I'm glad I reintroduced myself to this lens. I'm actually really impressed with the center detail and clarity I get out of it for what it is. Though, that said, I'm not mercilessly pixel peeping all the corners at 300% crop when I use it. If you're taking the kids out to the beach on a sunny day and need a portable lens? It is pretty good, and casual shooters looking for a portable lens shouldn't have a problem with it. Out with the friends at night in a poorly lit bar? Not so much. Throw up a solid color paper backdrop, get some good lights, stay between f/5.6 and f/11 and you could probably even do portraits and full body shots for a client were you to wish it.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible lens Terrible distortion below 20mm. No straight line will look straight with this lens at those wide angles. The distortion is so bad that you have no chance of correcting it in post processing. Also don't shoot in any direction where there's alot of light, because the lens will flare any light into a haze. It doesn't have to be light coming towards the lens. It can be a bright object and you're image will be pretty much ruined. I'm using it on a Nex-3N, and it could be the camera, but I have a zoom telephoto lens also and I don't see the flaring issue with that lens.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good I bought the A6000 kit with this lens, and ended up returning it because the image quality was pretty bad. It has the worst distortion of any lens I've ever seen by a lot. Pretty much always soft images. This lens is not up to the standard Sony portrays. Upon realizing the camera was great and the lens was bad I purchased the A6000 body and the zeiss 1670Z. Now I'm happy!
