Summary: This product was bought as a gift. It arrived in a timely manner and was as described. I took some test shots with my camera and Sony's quality lens performed on par with what was expected. For the value paid, it does not compare to other lenses compatible for the Sony alpha series of cameras.
Summary: I bought this lens along with the Sony 11-18 wide angle lens for my Sony a65 both lenses used. I have to say I love this lens, the focus and zoom ring work smoothly,its produces very sharp images with great color. I feels surprisingly sturdy although it is a plastic lens(Only con is the base is plastic instead of metal). Its a great multipurpose lens,it does anything great from portraits,macros,landscapes,action shots,videos the list goes on.
