flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||a-mount glass|
|price paid:||NZ$300, NZ$110|
|positive:||small, sharp, very portable, compliments my a-mount lenses, 16mm width.|
|comment:||This wee lens came with a Nex 5T which was why I bought them both. The combination is very easy to transport around and as a general every day combo it is ideal. Using it whilst hiking I didn't notice its weight or baulk and it fitted into a shirt pocket perfectly.It is also very unobtrustive at events combined with the 5T .|
I use an a580/a77ii and Tamron 150_600 for my wild life gear and I find with this wee outfit they all compliment each other in every way. The lens itself, is acceptably sharp from the camera and through PS Elements really makes it shine.
I was very scepticle about e_mount but now I'm rather taken with it and just happily change between the 2 systems.
Edit: bought a second one for my a6300 and just as happy with it as the one on the Nex5t. I can't see why people are so negative about it ( unless they are hypercritical, pixel peepers)
