If you've been on the lookout for an E-mount lens that will absolutely change the character and emphasis of the subjects you shoot, plus give you flexibility in framing options that you just can't get any other way, you need to start experimenting with this Sony Alpha SEL-1018 wide-angle zoom lens. With a 15mm equivalent focal length on your NEX-series camera at full wide angle, this lens is ideal for capturing that seaside panorama with the approaching storm clouds, or the full city skyline from the high ground downtown. Plus, with the unusual emphasis that extreme wide angles give to perspective, you'll be able to create images that are truly arresting.
The lens is competitive in lower light as well, with a maximum aperture of f/4 throughout its zoom range. Try it out in tight spaces.
