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.

    great range, flexibility

Purchased for the flexibility to photograph a friend's wedding. The motor focuses quickly and quietly. The depth of field was surprisingly much better than I expected. The largest aperture allowed nice portraits with the background out of focus.

For this price, the lens is well worth having. For my type of photography this is just the lens I need in my case.

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

    None So Far

This is a decent lens, lightweight walk around zoom. It focuses quickly on my A77, similar to the speed of the 16-50mm f2.8 SSM, a lot faster than the 55-300mm SAM and bit faster than the 35mm f1.8 SAM.

Best lens, crisp and clear images you get without doubt...
