Conclusion: Kit lenses are usually nothing special, but this lens has proved itself a very capable performer during testing, especially in the areas of resolution and control of colour aberrations. Although the features of this lens are basic, if you can live without the luxuries of internal focusing, a wider maximum aperture, or a silent focus motor, then this lens could well meet your needs, especially in terms of image quality.
Pros: Good resolution performance, Good control of CA, Compact and lightweight
Cons: Rotating front element, Barrel distortion at 18mm, Can be prone to flare
