The Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Alpha E-mount Retractable Zoom Lens is a retractable zoom lens with a focal length range of 24-75mm in the 35mm format equivalency. It covers shooting lengths from true wide angle to standard portrait length and is a great day-to-day type lens, especially since its unique retractability keeps it very compact. When powered on, the lens expands, but in its off position the lens is only 1.2" (30mm) which will fit in your pocket. When expanded, it has a surprisingly large zoom range and access to its dual-function control ring for manual focus and zooming. Its Power Zoom capability in AF mode and Internal Stepping Motor provide, fast, smooth and quiet autofocus which is helpful when shooting video with this lens.
The lens is a Sony E-mount lens that is compatible not only with the NEX cameras but also with the NEX Handycam Camcorders. The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system reduces the effect of camera shake which is particularly problematic when tracking moving subjects in video or shooting photos in low-light. The OSS provides approximately 4-stops of shutter speed correction to help create blur-free images no matter the shooting conditions. Four Aspherical elements and one ED element correct for curved perspective at wide-angle lengths and chromatic aberration at telephoto lengths to provide sharp, high contrast imaging across the entire frame.

The older version that was included up to the NEX-5R (I think) is big and has standard non-powered zoom. This one is a lot more compact. Now you can really have a compact NEX set up with a zoom lens (before, the only option is to use the pancake prime lens). The zoom is now electronic, but you can still use the ring to zoom in and out aside from the lever. The ring can also be used for focus adjustment, which is really nice to use, imo easier than the "stiffer" ring on the regular lenses.
Quality wise, it's okay. Again, it's a kit lens. Most people wouldn't have a problem with the image quality, but watch for distortions on the sides/corners, especially at the widest setting. I can still see it in some cases, even with the in-camera JPEG of my NEX-5R. I don't remember the original bigger kit lens had such distortions. Definitely not the enthusiast's lens. Depth of field is very limited, and its slowness becomes apparent quickly in low-light situations. The compactness makes it really useful for travel though. I now carry this alongside the 35mm prime.
This bulk packaging is the kit lens separated from a bundle. What I got was just the lens inside a brown box... without the back lens cover. Sure, it's covered with bubble wrap, but I assume the back side of the lens is pretty much "exposed" from the moment it was taken out from whatever original bundle it came with. That may not bode well with some people. The upside is you are paying less than the regular retail version that Sony offers.
Finding good filters for the 40.5mm threads is tricky, but this is a flexible and compact lens that I never leave home without and I'm usually pleased with my pictures.
Packaging wise I got mine in a mess. It seemed to be used or just not cared for. No dings or anything the front and rear of the lens were just filthy but it cleaned up well and works.
