9 out of 10 points and recommendedGood IQ, great stabilisation, great for videolens 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.reviewed January 9th, 2013 (purchased for $620)
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.
