i just bought one during cyber monday deal. Got it for $950. Should be receiving it soon.
There aren't a whole lot of options for a compact zoom besides this. I found the 18-200 LE too big & heavy....
I was trying the 18-200LE at the sony store on my NEX6.
I noticed that there is a very long shutter lag (2-3 seconds) with this lens. I hear the beep and see the green square indicating it got...
I took a few random pics with the 18-200LE and CZ16-70.
i can't really see much of a difference. but of course i did not test it for all focal lengths or aperture.
Just wanted to see if i am...
when people compare/review lens are they looking at the jpeg or the raw file?
because with raw alot really depends on how you process the image... adding sharpness, contrast, etc...
can you comment on how flare resistant it is?
I like to shoot into the sun alot and the kit lens gets alot of flare.
this lens is perfect for my needs. but it appears to be too big/heavy.
why does it matter that the lens does not extend while zooming?
wouldn't a more compact lens be more convenient?
how would you compare the sharpness between this and the kit lens?
I'm still undecided on picking up this lens.

Why 1670Z is so much expensive than 18-105mm f/4 ? Both are f/4 and both are OSS.
-The 1670Z is more wider and its have an angle like a 24mm in a FullFrame body. Good.
thanks for the review.
i've been debating whether to get this or the Sony 18-200 LE or the 18-105.
This seemed like a better choice because the other 2 were larger/heavier.
The previous reviews say...
best thing to do is to make both.
that's why people complain there aren't enough lens.
how did you get those day shots?
The parade doesn't start till nighttime.
All my shots were at night which made it a challenge.
i like the first one the best.
love the composition with the leading lines.
thanks for the suggestions.
tried a bunch of bags at B&H.
I think i will go with the lowepro streamline sling
camera section is big enough for my nex6 + another...
I'm looking for a bag with only a small section to fit my NEX6 + another zoom like the 18-200.
Most of the bags i've seen, 1/2 the section is devoted to the camera. That's too much space for my...
i am also trying to decide between these 2 lens and the 18-105.
what do you mean by 3x digital zoom? My NEX only has 2X for the clear zoom option.
with such long exposure, you also need to have a heavy & strong tripod.
500 sec exposure woud be prone to camera shake due to wind & vibrations.
I keep my night exposure to < 10 seconds and get...
any of you attending photplus in nyc?
There is supposed to be a free sensor cleaning for NEX and alpha cameras from Sony.
Not sure how it works.
Anybody know how long does it take to clean the...
i remember reading a post here last year that Sony was offering free sensor cleaning at photoplus for NEX cameras. Are they doing it this year?
If yes, what is the procedure?
what is the max aperture of the 18-200 at 105mm?
i am also disappointed on how big it is and might get the 18-200 instead.
whenever i view a pic with this software, you see the pic sharpen for a few seconds and then the sharpness goes away. anybody else experience this? why does it do this?
