Sony E 16 mm f/2.8

 

The youngest mirrorless system on the market – the Sony NEX- has only two lenses currently available for purchase, in its line-up. One of them is the Sony E 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS kit lens. Many people are also interested in the second option – the...

small dimensions and weight ; very good resolution in the frame centre on slight stopping down ; decent resolution on the edge of the frame for f/5.6-f/11 aperture range ; low distortion ; well-controlled coma ; accurate and problem-free autofocus

resolution by f/2.8 under the decency level ; average or weak resolution on the edge of the frame ; high lateral chromatic aberration in the whole aperture range ; noticeable vignetting in the whole aperture range

Turn off Wi-Fi to extend battery life.

 

I bought my a6000 in 2015. I was looking for a light weight camera that could take great pictures. I soon realized that a single charge did not last very long. I could only get about 2 hours from the battery. After watching a Gary Fong video, I learned...

Camera returns error to turn OFF, then ON again.

 

When the camera is first turned ON, or awakes from sleep, the first photo will fail, returning a camera error with this battery. You must turn the camera OFF, then ON again. Extremely annoying. I suspect that it can't deliver enough current to truly...

Worst Service Ever !!!!!

 

I have been a Sony customer for years now but this has been a nightmare. I originally purchased a refurbished Sony NEX7 with the SEL18155 kit lens, the SEL50F18 lens, and lastly the SEL16F28 lens. Long story short my items arrived quickly but i was...

Extra battery is handy

 

I took my Sony NEX6 camera with this spare battery to Yellowstone national park. This battery came in very handy during full day of photo and video shooting.

These batteries are a bit too expensive and do not last for long periods of time if left in the camera. purchased this one for a backup.

Dissapointing

 

This lens is only good for shooting in bright light, or on a tripod, or for landscape photography. In all other conditions, images are never sharp enough, or outright ruined. Images taken with SEL1855 are ALWAYS sharper. So I rarely use this lens now,...

Very Poor Quality

 

This 16mm was the first lens I purchased together with my NEX-5 about 14 months ago and was always a disappointment, a great focal length that fails to deliver on sharpness. The optimum aperture for sharpness turns out to be 6.3 or 7.1 and is still not...

Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ OSS SELP1650 review by Perry Rhodan

 

Incredibly tiny and still rather good IQ. THE walk around lens for now. Still hoping for an F4 version for 600.

Small package. Light. Cheap but good IQ with the NEX 6

Not much for this price
