A very affordable and good macro lens, but does not substitute for a good walk around lens

Summary: I bought this lens to use as a "general walk around" lens. On my A77 mkii it is a 45mm focal length, lens construction is very light weight plastic same as the 50mm F1.8. Wide open lens is very sharp with good color and contrast but the out of focus bokeh is pretty terrible from F2.8 - F4 and for...
Summary: This lens has cromatic aberrations wide open, the minimal focus require that you're too close to the subject, been so dificult to get close to insects and making shadows with de same lens. So it's good for the price, but its not so easy to handle.
Summary: The lens works well but is a little bit noisy. I don't know if that is my camera (Sony A300k), but the pictures are a little bit yellow and I need to fix that with some software. Is hard to get good pictures of subjects small than 5mm, and even 10mm is a problem to get the right focus.
Summary: once I learned the right way to use a macro lens I got some pretty cool shots.. Dont bother using auto focus doing macro.. set the lens to manual and then focus out to infinity and then use move the camera back and forth from your subject to get your focus right..
