I find zooming with this lens creates choppy rather than smooth video. Is that a defect of my particular lens or is that par for the course with this lens. I purchased this lens b/c I read that it worked well with video but I cannot get a smooth zoom, rendering it basically useless for video except as a fixed lens. Very disappointing. Are others having this experience?

I do not have this lens. I have a Tamron 18-270 but have not used video with the zoom lens. I assume that as you zoom you lose focus until you stop zooming when it focuses again. If this is your problem you need to write Sony support directly for an answer since this is a Sony camera and lens. You can also call them. I found them to be helpful. Be sure your camera and lens are registered.
Sorry I am not more help. I will try my zoom with video to see if I have the same problem.
