    London Through A Kit Lens

    Kit Lens generally get a poor press from photographers as they are bundled with a new camera as a means of getting the purchaser started in photography. The lens themselves are generally inexpensive and appear to be cheaply made out of plastic with inferior optical glass with a moderate wide-angle to short telephoto range and have a relatively slow variable aperture of between usually f/3.5-5.6 and produce soft images especially near the sides and corners. Knowing the limitations of the lens and working around those limitations, a kit lens can be a very effective tool for taking photographs.

    For Sony APS-C E-mount mirrorless cameras, in this case an A6300, the kit lens is the Sony PZ 16-50mm(24-70mm equivalent) f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens (£280 if bought separately). This is a pancake compact power zoom lens, just over 30mm in length, that doubles in size when the camera turns on and the retractable internal barrel extends. There is no lens hood but it does have Optical SteadyShot.

    Very nice pictures, no matter what lens or camera was used.

    Cameras don't take pictures, photographers do.
