The Sony 16-70mm Lens is far better then the kit lens you are getting with A6500 camera. And I would like to say Sony A6500 is the best lens I have ever used with the camera. The lens produces super sharp images and features a constant F4 aperture throughout the zoom range. The build quality of the lens is very solid and the image stabilization of the lens is highly effective and works upto four shutter speed steps to benefit while handheld shooting.

If you think the price is high then just imagine that you are buying a bunch of high quality prime lenses. Since the 16-70mm F Lens performance is equivalent to prime lenses u have used with your DSLRs. It’s expensive but it’s a Zeiss OSS and you get what you pay for when quality is your priority.

DXO mark verdict
Given the emphasis on the high-grade components and construction to match the maker’s high-resolution sensors, we had high hopes for the Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM, and we weren’t disappointed. It is the best-performing zoom in the maker’s range and can easily hold its own against the new AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR. However, for edge-to-edge to sharpness, the Sony isn’t quite in the same league as the Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L USM II, but we still have to add the Sony A7RII to propose a fair comparison with the 50 Mpix Canon EOS 5DSR. Nevertheless, the Sony does have certain strengths — better transmission and lower lateral chromatic aberration than many high-grade primes — and while certainly pricey, it’s still a competitive and tempting addition to the range.
