Sony 16-50mm f2.8 Lens Test – By A Videographer

Vancouver-based videographer Shawn Lam tested the Sony 16-50mm f2.8 SSM. And his conclusion? “Buy-it! Every shooter needs a great wide-zoom and this one fits the criteria. “

That might not be so easy: The 16-50 can be ordered from Amazon and Adorama, though neither are currently showing stock. The same holds for WEX in the UK. I guess this is one other Sony item in short supply because of flooding in Thailand. Shame, because I’m very happy with mine, and I think it’s great value as a general purpose lens.

    I finally had to buy the Body Only, I did not want to wait till spring for this camera.
    Since I do not have any lenses I also bought the Tamron 30mm F1.4 EX DC to start up with.
    I will buy the 16-50 F2.8 lens as soon as it becomes available in Norway, that way I have one multipurpose lens and one very light sensitive lens.
    Shawn Lams findings about the parfocal abilities of the 16-50 is something I find very important for video use.
