Comments about Sony Sony 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens for NEX:

I bought the Nex-5 with this lens bundled after much research. This was my first foray into anything beyond point and shoot. I was a bit intimidated, but was happy to see that Nikon has a D3100 coming out, and Sony had this out. I had to make a decision between the two, and portability won out, although both had very similar features. I do wish that Sony had more lenses and special accessories (lens covers etc)
Anyway, out of the box and charged, I started playing with the camera. It was after sundown in the summer and my son had a friend over. So I took living room pictures, kitchen pictures, deck pictures, all without flash. I still haven't used the flash. The pics looked great on the display, but you never know. That night, I put the card in the laptop, and WOW!!!!!!!!!! I am thrilled at the quality, clarity, and the things this camera can do to make me look like a better photographer. I loved the background blur, and even more loved the way that the lens and camera work together well to help me do manual focusing :) This review is about the lens, so I'll go back to the lens...

So all the indoor shooting was great, perfect focal distance for most shots in the house! The deck pictures were great as well. The next day, we had a birthday party to go to, and I was able to take beautiful, no fuss, pictures there too!!! I did notice at close range that the 18-55mm isn't ideal (told ya I'm a newbie :) ) and also that in the manual it says that the 16mm is recommended for the video (although I was pleased with the video with this lens!) I went and ordered the 16mm in addition, but I think that overall, this will be the lens I'll have on the camera at the ready. It seems to be the most versatile!
