  • Sony E 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS SEL18200

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Good IQ, great stabilisation, great for video
    lens will self extend if hanging vertically and not locked at 18mm

    I was amazed to get blur free handheld shots at 200mm shooting at 1/20s in the rain holding an umbrella (£5mm equiv 300mm). Not one off but shot 100s and very few rejects that morning.
    Also good for stable hand held video.
    It really makes me feel I do not need to invest in other expensive lenses except for super WA, faster aperture & smaller manual legacy glass which I love on NEX.
    Finding the rings for manual adjustments while using EVF can be hard to dp smoothly and avoid slight movements while shooting video.
