Summary: Best price for this lens I could find, by far. Shipped and received early from Korea. Lens was exactly as described and meets my needs for a low cost wide angle lens. If you're looking for a low cost wide angle lens, this is the one for you.
Summary: I purchased my Sony DSLR with ann 18-135 zoom and it is the best "vacation lens" for my type of photography. However, I also like to do macro work so I needed a solution for that problem. This kit lens is very good for filling in the gap. I have been pleased with the quality of the photos I took using it.
