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.
