Super sharp lens for the a350

I really like the sony Alpha 350 for it's resolution and live view. I have been quite happy with the kit lens that comes with it, the Sony 18-70mm, but to take full advantage of the camera's 14 meg. resolution I read on the web about the Zeiss lens. I finally got one and now see the difference this class of glass makes! The zoom, 16-80mm, makes this lens practical for just about every photo opportunity I encounter. The detail that the lens captures has my Canon and Nikon friends wondering about their systems. My camera is quite big and heavy now but I do not mind, This lens is great! Sorry about the macro though… not great. But if you are looking for a very sharp, general purpose all-round premium lens go for this one you will not be disappointed.

BEST!!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the best lens...on many counts, Its the cheapest in the Zeiss line up and the most versatile. 16mm (24mm eqv) is a good wide angle and the next moment u can shoot at 120mm eq...there is no other lens to beat this versatility. There is the Sony 16-105, but cant compete with Zeiss in Image quality. Pictures are sharp, vibrant, gr8 contrast and saturation...so good that I do not need any post processing. On a 24 MP sony A65, using the 2X digital zoom makes it a 10X zoom lens and to my surprise THERE IS NO LOSS OF QUALITY in the 2X CROP!!!! this remains on my camera 99% of the times. I use the 50mm minolta f1.7 only in low light. All other times, this lives.

Sony CZ 16-80mm lens

Superb lens in all respects. It is very sharp and has excellent color rendition. The contrast is so good the images have an almost 3D effect. The range (16-80mm) on an APC camera is equivalent to 24-120mm on a full frame camera and is perfect for landscape photography. I no longer have to switch back and forth between a wide angle zoom and a normal zoom in the field, as this lens covers the entire range I typically use. If it had a larger aperture, say 2.8, it would be perfect.

Carl Zeiss 16-80mm

really good lens.
If you are looking for very sharp and sunlight behind of you zoom lens, this lens is the best choice. EVER!!!!
Comapare to the Sony sal bundle lens, this lens has a merit of "bright F value" and "more zoom and more macro."
Carl Zeiss is the real lens.
