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. Designed for Sony APS-C E-mount compact system cameras. 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).
