Excellent glass for a great price as it has built-in image stabilization. Extremely sharp, even with Precision Digital Zoom (PDZ) option selected at 3X on my NEX5N - in such mode, PDZ allows me to shoot at an equivalent focal length of 225mm. Excellent bokeh (f1.8)at the 225mm equivalent. In this 3X digital zoom mode, with the lens at its closest focusing distance of approx 1.5 feet, my macro shots at f 8 are unbelievably sharp.
The very quiet mechanism, image stabilization, good balance on NEX5N and the wide aperture of f1.8 will translate into pleasing video clips. This lens enhances Sony's NEX features: Sweep Panorama, Anti Motion Blur and Hand Held Twilight. A nice complement to my Sony 18-55E kit lens. Well done, SONY!
