Summary: Not sure about the other reviews. Mine came packed in a box in bubble wrap with the front and rear lens covers. Works perfectly! Great little compact lens. Did not get this lens with my original bundle. Great addition to make my camera more portable. Now will fit in my pocket great pictures!
Summary: Works just like my kit lens did! (It got broken so I had to replace it) It looks only a little bit funny because it's silver and not black, but for a several hundred dollar difference, I would pick this lens any day over the black one. I love my Sony Nex-6 and this lens!
