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.
This is the lens that every camera should have coming out from store!

Summary: With a ratio of 11.1x [27-300 in 35mm film], outstanding everyday quality, lite enough to carry around, and very affordable for most of us, this is your choice if you’re about to replace your everyday lens, or want an "only one lens option". You may open wide or get close enough on most situations. The ADI function works great when using with flash, especially with external units, well balanced pictures and colors.
