Vancouver Video's reviews

  • Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 DT SSM SAL1650

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Cost relative to Nikon & Canon, fast f/2.8, parfocal, wide on APSC/Super35mm
    Barrel extends when zooming

    I just love this lens, especially for use on the Sony NEX-FS100 video camera. One of the requirements on video is that the lens holds focus when you zoom out. This is known as parfocal and the SAL1650 16-50mm f/2.8 is parfocal!

    Here is my review with some video comparisons to two other lenses:
