Summary: I had this lens for over 3 years but hardly ever touched the camera because the pictures were so unimpressive; it's relatively sharp however poor image quality, lousy in low light and everything looks to be on the gray side.
Summary: Good condition as advertised. Impressed with delivery time. Product wise, very nice lens. A definite must have for beginner photographers especially. The clarify of this lens is much better than the 16-50. Highly recommend this lens.

Probably at the very center and moderate apertures. But the edges are a little worse than awful. And I seldomly use the widest aperture for the very same reason.
Hands down, the worse lens I've ever tried. Shame on Sony.. how dare they!
