        Comments about Sony SCL-Z18X140 FZ Mount 14X Power Zoom Lens:

        I bought this lens in 2012 and it started giving trouble in 2014. The lens would quit working after a few minutes of filming (used with F3). I sent it to Sony in LA and they wanted $ to give me a replacement. I told them I was not going to pay close to what a new one costs just to get a replacement and asked them to see if they can repair it. They sent the lens to Hong Kong and sent me a quote for $ to repair the lens. Their diagnosis was 'rear elements out of alignment'. I was not going to pay $ to repair a poor quality lens. Now I have a $ paper weight. Will not buy Sony lenses again. My Fujinon's have not given me any trouble. Was not impressed with the image quality which was okay, not worth $.

        Not a fast lens, but only solution available for automatic zoom. In some cases it is necessary to update the firmware before.

        Comments about Sony SCL-Z18X140 FZ Mount 14X Power Zoom Lens:

        Ordered this lens for my Sony PMW-F3L camcorder and uploaded the latest Firmware from Sony in order to operate the lens. Easily mounted onto camera and is fully automatic. Auto Iris control, Focus and Steady shot control. Great zoom range. Zoom is adjustable either fast or slow by way of zoom lever just like other Sony camcorders like the FX-1000 and the AX-2000. Best used outside or under sufficient indoor lighting because its not considered a fast lens at 3.8 at the widest. Nevertheless, Im very satisfied with the image quality and ease of operation.
