Summary: Lovely lens Sony SEL 18-55 well suited for landscapes, portraits and genre shooting. Good color, almost needs no correction. Quickly the sharpness. Recommend to those who still does not have this lens.
Summary: I got this for a little more than 100$. The reason I got it is probably the price, since I already have the 16-50 that came with the NEX6, I didn't really need this one. I got it so I could test out the image quality and overall usability of the lens. I must say that it outperforms the 16-50 in terms of image quality and speed (also boot and shut down speed). But the 16-50 beats it in terms of mobility and portability.
Summary: Like any kit lens, it is far from perfect, but that doesn't mean it's bad. On the contrary, it is a great multipurpose lens, fast enough for most shooting conditions, which produces vibrant Minolta-like colors and crisp images. Mated to my SLT-A37 it does all I need it to, and more.
