A nicer alternative to the already-owned Sony kit lens. But a close one!
6 August 2011
Summary: Much bigger and heavier than kit lens. The F2.8 gives much more freedom of course. Picture quality is generally higher than kit lens, especially for Portraits. But I'm yet to decide whether it's really so much higher that it's worth replacing the already-there kit lens.
Summary: While i had great expectation from this lense the mechanical aspects of this lense disappointd me as far as my Nikon d40 is concerned.The F sign appears frequently.I have since returned this lense.
