Mount this lens to your Sony NEX-series hybrid camera to get a "zoomed out" view that lets you photograph more of the scene in front of you. Take it along to your family reunion to easily snap large group shots, or bring it on your next vacation to better capture the enormity of landscapes and cityscapes. Its compact size makes it very travel-friendly.
This lens's wide maximum aperture also means it's a great choice for low-light shooting whether that's Las Vegas at night, or just indoors without a flash. It lets in plenty of light, so you won't get the overly dim or blurry photos you might see with other lenses.
