That's odd, the original 18-55 that came with the 5 and 3 had OSS, and to my understanding the only difference with the limited edition black 18-55 that comes with the 7 is the colour.

Well here's the reply from a B&H rep. He says the lens does have OSS but if you follow his link, you'll see no mention of the kit lens having OSS and under the specs, image stabilization states "No" although that is an error. (B&H needs to work on their website).

Hello,

Thank you for contacting the Photography department at B&H Photo Video and Pro Audio.

As per my search, the kit viewable at the following link:

Sony Alpha NEX-7 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens NEX7K/B B&H

comes with a Sony E-Mount SEL 1855 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens for Alpha NEX Cameras that includes
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Thank you, we appreciate your business.




Will let you know once I've heard back.
