  • Sony 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 DT Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* SAL-1680Z

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    quality, good for travel, good bokeh
    vigneting at widest aperture

    purchased to be "Kit forever" lens on Sony dslr-a350 because of quality and razor sharpness. Not bad range for travel zoom. On F/5.6-8 extremely sharp wide angle - good for landscape photos. For portrait this lens may be "oversharp" (some girls will not be happy)
