Summary: You get a lot of bang for your buck with this lens. I tested it on a A57. Sharp centre performance at all focul lengths when stopped down although a tad soft at 135. F/5.6 and above are the best settings. Corners and edges a bit soft at all focul lengths but sharpened up nicely at F/5.6+ It certainly performs better than the 16-105.
Pros: Very useful zoom range, excellent build quality, good value for money
Cons: Edges a little soft but sharpen up at F/5.6 +

Summary: On the A 57 it handles like a dream. Very speedy AF that is almost inaudible. The IQ is very good, matching those above it's price point. Feels very solid and zooms very fluently without any stiffer points. For this price THE allround lens to get for your A57. The in practice feeling is just stunning compared to (much) higher priced allround lenses. IQ seriously better then the longer megazooms (So, Si, Ta et all). Even on the A 65 this lens performed flawlessly.
Pros: almost silent and speedy AF, very decent IQ allround, very good built quality
