Overall, this is a nice lens that feels solid and inspires confidence. Its price may be only slightly less than that of some other lenses that include image-stabilisation technology, but it is still a sound investment.

Sony only has a warranty of 1 year for this lens. I had this lens for 2 years when suddenly the autofocus failed. When I called Sony their response was to buy an extended warranty plan next time. Says a lot about their quality and support. I take exceptional care with all my photo gear.

Great zoom lens. Has the perfect range for everything from family shots to sporting events. It's also very quiet and comes with a butterfly lens hood which is a nice bonus.

    Great zoom range in a single lens and the auto focus motor is much quieter than other lenses that I have used.

    None that I have found

22 July 2013

I have had this lens for a while, and these are the only cons i found. There is vignetting on some of my images, distortion on many, in some cases struggles to find focus, and very loud when it does. This lens is nice for a first lens, but definitely not a pro lens. These are my warnings.

This lense is so neat, never have to switch lenses, perfect for the all around close up or distance. Very sturdy but less bulky and lighter than other comparable lenses. For the money you won't be disappointed.
