question

I have a NEX 7 are there any issues using this lens with my camera? What if any limitations might there be? It seems that a tulip style lens shade would allow the autofocus to perform better than the square video style supplied - is that true?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is fully compatible with the Sony NEX-7. The shape of the lens hood you use will not affect the functionality of the camera's autofocus.

question

I have a Sony NEX-6 with the 6-50 OSS lens. I want to get a telephoto zoom and trying to decide which one to get and whether to get an 18-200 or a 55-200?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is one situation where it seems the 18-200mm lens may slightly out-perform the two-lens setup of the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses. While image quality does typically prefer the two-lens setup, the 18-200mm lens is well-designed (as indicated by its price), and the main struggles it would have would be with chromatic abberation, and slightly with distortion on the wide-end of the zoom; however, even for the all-in-one lens, it performs better than the 16-50mm lens at 16mm natively. When using the 16-50mm lens and the 55-210mm lens, some of the optical issues can be corrected simply by activating the camera's Distortion Correction feature, which also assists in correcting for vignetting. Basically, if you are on a budget, the two lens setup would be a good option, using the camera's Distortion Correction feature, but if you need a one-lens-does-all solution, then the 18-200mm lens is a good option on the NEX camera platform.

question

Can someone explain the fairly significant price difference between the Sony SELP12800 and SEL18200? At least superficially these are more or less the same lens.
Asked by: Kent
This lens, the SELP12800, is more expensive because it has a Powered Zoom. The SEL18200 does not have a Powered Zoom, it is a manual zoom lens only.

question

Using this lens with a sony a6000. Does anyone know of a way to mount it on a camera head like the vinten vision blue? The bottom of the lens extends below the camera body blocking the plate from entering the head.
Asked by: Ryan V.
The only way is to make an adapter (Spacer) between Camera and Vinten Vision Blue. I had the same problem with my mounting so I made an adapter.....

question

I understand the limitations using this on an Alpha 7r. But what lens is sold with this configuration that does not have those limitations and is a full frame lens? Either Sony or Zeiss. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately there is not a full-frame version or equivalent of this type of lens for the full-frame E mount at this time. Below are a link to all the current full-frame lenses available for the camera system for you to regard:http://bhpho.to/1pq1pyK
