    Anyone here used the Sony A-Mount 16-50mm f/2.8 on their NEX? I am sorely tempted to give it a go!

    If a mod can move this. I thought I was in the adapted lenses sub forum when I posted this. Sorry!

    it's a decent enough lens, no great shakes either way, but for portability and general snapshots it's great, there are some great shots people have taken with it on flickr etc

    I think you're thinking of the SEL 16-50 Powerzoom, and OP is talking about this lens.

    I've seen some pretty good results, but the size of it (with LA-EA2) has always put me off. The upcoming Zeiss zoom for E-mount was leaked on Sony Rumors recently and it is probably a good idea to wait for that.
