The 18-200mm E-mount lens is one of the most versatile lens I have ever seen, the lens covers the need of kit and zoom lens. Best to use in daylight condition to get perfect shots.

The other drawback of the lens that it doesn’t allow you to zoom manually, the Lens act as a compact camera lens and takes bit time while zooming-in and out.

Don’t spend your bucks until you really need this lens, if you are a hardcore daylight travel photographer than you should buy this lens, otherwise think twice before getting it.

    Hi, what about the SEL1670Z? Why don’t you mention this lens? Is it not worth to be mentioned? My photo dealer told me that this is the best lens for the A6300. Is he wrong? rgds Marisa

  • admin

    Hi Marisa,

    Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens (24-105mm) is one the best travel and portrait available for NEX cameras but the cost is too high.

    If you want a all in one high quality solution than 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS is the best lens for you. Many people does complain about the soft corners of the lens, however while trying out the lens I didn’t notice such issue.

    We have not included in our recommendation due to its price factor, since the price of the lens is equivalent to Sony NEX A6300 price itself, however after you question we will sure add this lens in our list.

  • Mike Menon

  • Smitha SIngh

    Dear admin

    I need advice on getting my first lens for portrait shooting, I love to capture portraits from my Sony A6300 camera but I am not able to get creamy background.

  • peterparker

    @Smitha SIngh
    Sony 50mm F1.8 lens is excellent for shooting portraits, the lens features gives out excellent creamy background when used at MAX aperture.

  • A “35mm” lens on a A6300 becomes a “42mm” lens, and so, not really optimum for street shooting. If Sony were serious about first class street shooting, they would make a 23mm f1.4 lens for their excellent APS-C Sony bodies. I don’t know why that wasn’t the first lens they made! They should have. Sony, take note.

  • admin

    @Rowland Scherman

    Thanks for your valuable input.

  • APS-C sensors actually make whatever lens is mounted 1.5 times the size. 35mm + 17 mm = 52mm (not 42, as I said). Not a really interesting point of view, in my opinion. The Sony 24mm would become a 36mm lens, far more usable for most situations. I don’t know why this wasn’t mentioned first by this article.

  • Hello, I use a 35 mm 2.8 f on my NEX 7, A600 & A7rII ITs an Excellent Lens . O

    On A6000 & NEX7 APS-C sensors it is 35×1.5 = 52.5 mm.

  • Rikita

    Hi admin,

    I have just purchased the Sony A6300 camera and want to know the name of best lens for shooting portraits.

  • admin

    Best Lens for shooting portrait is The 50mm F1.8 (mentioned in post above)

  • Frédy de l’île de la Réunion

    Bonjour, et merci infiniment pour vos commentaires, car je viens de commander l’Alpha 6300 avec le 16-50mm, et je paniquais de ne pas trouver un optique convenable pour les portraits. Effectivement vos commentaires sont clairs le 50 mm F/1-8 est effectivement un très bon produit, car c’est une optique plein format. Merci encore à l’administrateur cité ci-dessus.

    Hello, and thank you very much for your comments, because I just ordered the Alpha 6300 with the 16-50mm, and I panicked not to find a suitable optics for portraits. Indeed your comments are clear the 50 mm F / 1-8 is indeed a very good product, because it is a full-format optics. Thanks again to the administrator cited above.

  • admin

    50mm (75mm when used with Sony A6500 / A6300) Lens will be perfect for capturing stunning portraits. The lens features fast AF and Very sharp across the entire frame, the best part is you will get sharp result even at wide open aperture (F1.8).
    Highly recommended for shooting portraits.

  • Shari

    What would the best lens be for capturing kid sports, dance, etc that doesn’t cost more than the camera itself. I suppose it would be a telephoto lens… is that right? Will the 55-210 do that? Thank you!

  • admin

    Yes ut will do that, you can play with faster shutter speed to get a freezing action shot.

  • There really is no “long” lens for the Sony a6000 family. Why not? What about that new Tamron–but with E mount?
