Excerpt: I am very happy with this lens. I bought it to replace the 18-100mm kit lens that came with my Nikon D90. It is lightweight, sharp and fast, and the autofocus works very well, too. It is my new everyday lens.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
I kept this over the Sony 16-50mm SSM to use on my a77ii

Summary: I've been with the Sony Alpha line of cameras for quite a few years. I am currently using the a77ii. I've gone through many lenses always in search of the "magical" one (Minolta, Sony, Sigma and others). In the end, I was split between this lens and the Sony 16-50mm 2.8 SSM kit lens. I had both, and still have a very hard time deciding but in the end this lens won due to the longer focal reach and the zoom & focus felt better to me.
Excerpt: I am extremely pleased with this lens, especially for the cost. I've had great shooting experiences already with it, and I would recommend it to others who want a high quality, affordable lens.
Summary: This is generally my go-to lens for many projects these days: event photography, landscapes, people, food photography. You name it. It's so great to have so much of a choice in f/stops as well as distance in one lens. It isn't too heavy, which is nice too. And it's nearly silent when focusing. The pictures are sharp and clear and well-saturated and don't seem to have any chromatic aberrations.
