• Only 3/16" when fully retracted, this zoom lens is super compact
• Covers a 16-50mm range (35mm equivalent = 24-75mm) for flexible shooting

POWER ZOOM for smooth zooming
The SELP-1650 is the first ? lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is powered on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting. A dual-function control ring is used for both zooming and manual focus.
Compact and Lightweight Design
Despite a 3x magnification ratio covering 16 mm to 50 mm (24-75mm 35mm eq.), the SELP-1650 is thin and lightweight thanks to a retracting mechanism that reduces the lens to just 1-3/16” (30.2 mm). It truly enhances the portability of E-mount cameras, giving users the means to capture spontaneous moments when on trips with a light and compact camera/lens combination.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.

Sony NEX 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens - SELP1650 is rated out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayne 1 from My favorite camera ever I bought this about two weeks ago and have tried to give it a good test. I really like the ability to do selfies by flipping the screen on the back. I find it easier to use than my I phone to do selfies. I will sooon be looking for a telephoto lens to add to my camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ritchierich from Pretty darn good wide angle I don't see what all the fuss is about. I had reasonable expectations with this "kit" lens, but actually was blown away with its performance! I work at a camera store and see all sorts of optics and this one is well worth it. I was initially planning on the 10-18 lens as an additional wide but really found this to be quite sufficient and sharp. I shot a wedding (video) with this mounted on the Sony A 6000 and was very impressed with its quality and clarity. Do not hesitate to get one for yourself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Terrible lens Terrible distortion below 20mm. No straight line will look straight with this lens at those wide angles. The distortion is so bad that you have no chance of correcting it in post processing. Also don't shoot in any direction where there's alot of light, because the lens will flare any light into a haze. It doesn't have to be light coming towards the lens. It can be a bright object and you're image will be pretty much ruined. I'm using it on a Nex-3N, and it could be the camera, but I have a zoom telephoto lens also and I don't see the flaring issue with that lens.
