I bought this lens to replace my Tamron 18-200mm travel lens and it was the right decision! The Sony lens is much sharper, faster, smoother and it provides much nicer Bokeh backgrounds. I've taken great landscape photographs as well as portraits and even pictures of flowers and nature look great.

I purchased this lens after looking at multiple other lens. I have to say it is my main lens at the moment. I use it more than the others due to the great range and flexibility it provides. the pictures that I have taken with it are very good, crisp, clear, sharp.

Very quick and quiet autofocus. Pictures are much sharper than my older Minolta 28-85. Not sure how much of that is due to the 'compensation' performed by the camera for the newer lenses.There is a lock switch, but for some silly reason it only engages at 18mm zoom.

    Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Quiet focus

What a great lens. Beautiful pictures. Use it on my A55 and couldn't be any more happier. Great walk around lens.

I've had this lens for a couple weeks now. It came in a bundle along with my a65 camera. It focus very fast and there isn't much distortion at full zoom even though it has aspherical elements. I would definitely recommend this lens to someone.

    Sharp, Fast Focus, Very Little Distortion for an aspherical Lens
