Sigma 18-200 is more versital & friendly
from Dahlonega, GA
About Me Casual Photographer
An 18 - 200 lens is better so you don't have to interchange or carry 2 lenses. This one does not even compare to my 18-200 Sigma.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Make your Nex usefull
from Sequim, Washington
About Me Semi-Professional
I bought this camera to try and cut down the bulk of most DSLR's. That it did, however it has a few things that would have made this a great camera instead of just a good camera. For most people, a Cybershot would be a better camera. The lens that came with the camera is useless, so plan on getting this lens or one close to the specs, then that large, no giant CMOS can do the work it was designed for. This lens should have come with the camera to start with, Sony knows this and makes little excuse that the main profit from this line will be in the accessories. The body at 3/4" is a good size and the ease of use is pure Sony all the way. I would recommend dumping the lens that came with your camera unless you got this one, which is a combination I did not see.

Great lens, great price

Finally, an affordable lens for my NEX. Used it for a high school football game and the shots were awsome.
