Perfect travel lens!

SEL1655G 29 February 2020 by NomadingNick (USA)

I used to travel with the Sigma Trio for Sony APS-C: 16mm, 30mm, 56mm F/1.4 and the quality was amazing. However, being the heavy traveler that I am (up to 6 continents this year, yes, I said continents, not countries!) I need something more travel friendly. Switching between 3 primes was just soooo annoying. This 16-55mm G lens gives me just as good as image quality and now the extra convenience. Also for travel, I found myself shooting a lot of environmental portraits at F/2.8 - F/5.6. For example if the background is too blurred (i.e. Eiffel Tower or the Egyptian pyramids) then it doesn't show the beautiful scenery. Therefore I am not missing out much on the Sigma's F/1.4 at all. Now all I need is for Sony to make a APSC super wide angle zoom version 2 (update the Sony E 10-18mm f/4 to a GM or G series!)

Stunning crystal clear sharp corner 2 corner photo

SEL1655G 26 January 2020 by macprudence1 (USA)

Yes its expensive....but worth every penny. If you own the Sigma 16mm this lens is about the same weight and length. It has amazing sharpness, color, clarity, contrast...I can go on and on. I'm very happy with my purchase and you will be too.

Great pricey lens

SEL1655G//C SYX 18 January 2020 by Bryan97 (Singapore)

Been using the lens for a couple of months now, build and image quality is outstanding (with a6300 body). This is the lens to get if you’re intending to stay in the Sony apsc system as an overall excellent (and small-ish) all-in-one lens that covers most of the common focal lengths you need from landscape to short-telephoto. Only gripe is it’s super pricey, look for it on sale or at a 3rd party seller if it’s cheaper!

A Spectacular Lens

SEL1655G 11 January 2020 by ceev (United Kingdom)

I bought this lens to replace my three Sigma f1.4 primes and apart from the loss of two stops of exposure have not been disappointed. The lens has exceptional sharpness and contrast at all apertures and focal lengths and easily matches or exceeds the Sigma primes. Build quality and handling are excellent.

Lives up to its reputation

SEL1655G 02 January 2020 by andymw (United Kingdom)

My wife bought me this for Christmas and I've been playing with it since. This is definitely the best lense I have for my a6500. Very sharp at full aperture and easy to use. I love the constant f2.8. This will go with me everywhere. It'll probably not be my video lense of choice as my 24mm f1.8 Zeiss prime works better on the gimbal and is also a beautiful lense.

So far, so good!

SEL1655G 17 November 2019 by Txrtrider (USA)

Sold my 16-70 Zeiss f4. Zoom on this lens is much smoother and I like the f2.8.
