The Sony E16-50mm f3.5-5.6 OSS Lens is a retractable zoom lens perfect for travelling and other scenarios that require a lightweight, compact camera and lens combo. When fully retracted the E16-50mm lens is just 29.9mm, yet covers a wide 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent 24-75mm) for flexible shooting. The lens features one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and four aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly portable. The E16-50mm Power Zoom lens with manual override is the first Sony E-mount lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is turned on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting. More
Compact and lightweight design
Despite a 3x magnification ratio covering 16 mm to 50 mm (24-75mm 35mm eq.), the SELP-1650 is thin and lightweight thanks to a retracting mechanism that reduces the lens to just 3/16” (29.9 mm). It truly enhances the portability of E-mount cameras, giving users the means to capture spontaneous moments when on trips with a light and compact camera/lens combination.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization
The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.
ED glass and Aspherical lens elements
The SELP-1650 is equipped with one ED and four Aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact. The elements correct for curvature of field on the wide-angle side and spherical and chromatic aberration on the telephoto side for beautiful, accurate, high-contrast reproduction across the entire image.
POWER ZOOM for smooth zooming
The SELP-1650 is the first lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is powered on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting. A dual-function control ring is used for both zooming and manual focus.

Non-compatable NEX lens
About Me Semi-Professional
Comments about Sony E16-50mm f3.5-5.6 OSS Lens:
The lens is NOT compatible with my NEX-5D. There is no software update for this camera therefore the resulting pictures are distorted and have dark corners when in wide angle. I actually bought the lens to make my NEX-5 a pocket camera. Sony please stop saying that this is a compatable lens because this is just not true!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good with Sony lens correction updates
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Well balanced.Needs camera firmware upgrade (or software camera correction with Raw files)but then produces pleasing images.A useful zoom range for town and tourist usage and a discreet combination on Nex bodies.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

compact and very useful
This is a lens working with a versatile camera body which forms a small, compact tool. With a tele zoom and a macro lens I have a system to cover all I need and can carry anywhere (above water).
