Pros: Compact, economical to historical landmarks, zoom ring not bad. 55mm filters. Colors. Switch af-mf

Cons: shameful focus ring, you can work practically only in AF. excursion barrel. Af slow and pretty noisy. Sharpness. AC and flare often present

Opinion: Frankly, in terms of image quality it is not much worse than 28-70 E-mount ... like build quality is decidedly. The ring of the MAF is ridiculous, a circle of half a centimeter even knurled. The zoom ring is decent however, always responds well and has never given problems, it is never stuck or damaged by sand, dust, humidity, and this lens these 3 deadly components has seen in industrial quantities, was at 90% moisture, in the desert with the wind ... And despite the lack of weather sealing on that side did not give problems. More problems instead gives in terms of sharpness, contrast, resistance to flare and AC. It often used on f8 for decent results and yet we can not expect a precision scalpel ... but for 130 new !! It also has the convenient lever to change af / mf that today seems to be sadly out of fashion for optical kit. In all honesty, after tens of thousands of photos in all possible atmospheric conditionsthat has never given problems, and this is a real honor, you know that the focus remains on your side even if you mistreat a bit '. It 'a trusted companion, pleasant atmosphere to start than to have fun, unpretentious, I will remember it fondly!

Pros: Sharpness, color and contrast

Cons: AF noisy attack plastic, dim, gum bleaching after you use a little 'intense, there is no real manual focus ring

Opinion: To read the pros and cons so you would want to throw just got the car, but it is quite the opposite! RnSono impressed many times by the detail of the images obtained with this ultra-lightweight plastic barrel! More than once I thought I'd replace it in favor of optical ultra light fixed, but I had to change his mind, no matter how noisy in focus and everything is plastic, with a good flash becomes monstrous! RnCon the flash unit and the ' illuminated active infrared does not miss more than one step in really bad light, autofocus becomes a missile and a sniper, then the flash makes up for the little luminosità.rnPer regarding the brightness is useless to hope to use it without flash indoors, but this even with the zoom 2.8 unless you have a car for use over ISO 800 for shooting inside without lifting above ISO 400 is necessary to resort to fixed ultra luminosi.rnIl noise micro motor focus for me is not a problem, so I with the camera take pictures and video and it is not un'obiettivo to use for hunting Photographic, therefore is completely irrelevant! rnL'attacco is plastic, but the mechanical never betrays, in contrast to the optical sigma also of excellence! It will also be plastic, but I have no doubt about the quality and if bleaching the rubber zoom ring is not a problem, the lens works the same! RnForse a little 'more brightness would not have failed, but for 90 euro I saw her hard! rnSe you are really hard up before taking another brighter lens from one of the brands Universal I recommend you try to squeeze it, perhaps with an external flash (not the internal illuminator, with what is a catastrophe, but the problem is the flash ) and rewards come! rnL'unico zoom lens replacement (I speak for the APS-C) that would put the SAM 18-55 in the drawer is the 16-50 f2.8 sony that I could try a little, but the prices are not even comparable!
