Pros: Light. Total absence of aberrations of any kind. AF rapid in bright light. Discreet in the videos. Free!

Cons: Sharp just closing the diaphragm a bit. Slow AF with little light. Flare. Hood provided only for a fee.

Opinion: I admit: I would never have taken it, but this kit was provided in homage with my new Sony ALFA 68;) It was used for a short time until I got much better optics. The greatest merit is that the aberrations, chromatic and not, are non-existent at all focal lengths. Another advantage is the speed of the autofocus by day, while with little light the AF becomes erratic. I used it a lot to make some videos, and even here it defends well. Against the light suffers a lot of flare, but you have to see if the lens hood can be reduced. In the end, before being put back in the box, has baked images neither very beautiful nor very bad, as well as discrete videos, and therefore, for what I spent, ie zero, the opinion on this lens can only be positive.

Pros: Lightweight, in-house, af/mf switch. Few AC. Stoic!

Cons: Sharpness. Indecent flare. It gets dirty easy. Infiltration. MAF ring.

Opinion: This lens is very much ruined over time. It tends to get dirty with little. Sharpness not exhilarating but quite good compared to other lens kits. Af often in difficulty, with little less than an optimal light is useless. Dust and moisture infiltrations always lurking. Pulling the sums better take the bodysuit yourself and add it to a 50in at least valid. Used in all imaginable conditions he always responded well, no défaillance neither for dust nor for extreme humidity.

Pros: Sharp clarity on all focuses (if closed at the appropriate aperture) Almost handed together with the body of the camera. Practically free from chromatic aberration. Precise focus even if it does not lighten up. Best of many optical kits of various brands. It looks robust despite plastic. Lightweight and practical

Cons: As far as it costs you may be silent on the defects but suffers to flare when used in backlight. Unfortunately, the lens rotates during focusing.

Opinion: I got there two (when I bought the Alfa 450 and the A57) and they took me for thousands of shots giving me good results and never a problem. On all focuses it's surprisingly clear especially when closed af / 5.6 of / 8. The chromatic aberration is invisible even in the most critical passages from dark and light. It suffices to flare when a powerful source of light comes in the picture as the streetlights in night photos. He is a good companion for walking and traveling whenever he does not need a greater focus than that provided. There is a lack of a wide aperture and, for this reason, I have joined the Tamron 17 - 50 f / 2.8 fixed on all focal points. It is a pity that the optics rotate during focus, making it difficult to use a polarizing filter. The autofocus is precise and fast enough, while the manual focus ring is uncomfortable but, given the precision of automation, I never felt the need to use it. Though it's all plasticIn his hand seems robust and, using a phrase I often said, he must not be brought to war tore by war reporter. If it was possible to give the 8.5th grade for the performance, I would have given it if it deserves it, flare it to Part that can be avoided. I find it suitable for street and landscape images, less for portraits due to the inability to use generously open diaphragms. Concluding: It is a good lens that raised the often bad opinion on optics kits. If you have the needs that this optic can not fill, do not leave it, it may always be useful with its lightness and ability to spin good images.
