Pros: Cost, weight, lens hood, resolution at 70mm

Cons: Edges, sharpness at any aperture especially at the wide focal

Opinion: Coming from Fuji (XF 18-55) I can only define "bad" this plasticous zoom from kit. If at 70mm The yield is more than dignified, in the more wide focal lengths, the edges are to say the least unwatchable, even diaphragming. I do not understand how it can be sold (and purchased...) in kits with a Sony A7III! The thing that most baffled me is that, absurd, at 28mm the resolution at the edges is better to TA than to F8... Inexplicable! Taken used "new" by Kit, tried on A7 and A7s and resold immediately. Rated 5.

Pros: lightweight - precise operation despite economic construction

Cons: dimly - made modest at the edges and with open diaphragms

Opinion: I make a premise: each object must be evaluated on the basis of cost. The 28-70 Sony is the classic kit lens, cheap and plastic. If you demand better results, also in Sony House, there are the 24-70 f 4 Zeiss and the 24-70 f 2.8, the first travels from the part of the 800 euros, the second passes the 2000. To think that an opticthat that you buy in kit often costs less than 150 euros, can compete with the other two, is utopian. Buying it by purpose, paying 300 euros, does not seem like a good idea, but if as in my case it is almost given to you in the kit, it can come in handy, as an all-rounder in less demanding situations, or as a spare wheel if you have the "good" lens in service. The first impact is a bit disconcerting: very light, to the point that the A7 II is slightly unbalanced towards the back. However, the operation is precise, without games and mechanical indecisions. It's a "smart" lens, because in the middle the resolution is always more than acceptable, so the photos give the impression of good sharpness, but then you look at the edge at full opening and understand why it is cheap. The ideal would be to use it a little diaphragm, which is not always possible, given the not exceptional brightness. The maximum variable brightness with the focal is not pleasant, but it is the price to pay to reduce weight and size. It is not without distortions but these are always lurking with zooms, even the most expensive ones, you can always intervene in post production or, if you often take photos of architecture, better take a fixed wide angle. The backlit behavior is not bad. Considering the lower magnification required by the FF sensor, the quality at the top is certainly not noticeable less than in APSC devices. EDIT: Rereading the other reviews I thought a little bit. It is clear that this is not a memorable optics, but the difference in judgments, between those who find it acceptable (like me), and those who consider it unwatchable is strange. In particular I was impressed by the review of a person who at 28 mm finds the full opening yield better than at 8, when absolutely the opposite happens to me. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of this person's claim, as I am absolutely certain that MY exemplary behaves in the opposite way. At this point I begin to think that the tolerances of optical fabrication are a little too "tolerant", and that someone "comes out well" and others "come out bad", this would explain many things.

Pros: Cost, AF, compactness.

Cons: Edge sharpness, microcontrast, distortion. Sony should make an updated version and take it out of circulation.

Opinion: Ok is the classic cheap kit goal. I'll say, there's some upside. The negative ones are soon said: drop in sharpness at the sides, moderate distortion at 28mm, zero to 35mm and remarkable at 50-70mm and microcontrast not quite by record. Positives: very sharp in the middle and also on the sides at short distances. At medium and long distances there is a field curvature that sends the sides out of focus. This is the biggest annoyance. In landscapes, if you find the sides you'll face, the problem is the point of fire. try to focus on an edge and not in the center; f11 diaphragm and you'll find a good yield. AF, it's quiet and fast. He doesn't suffer particularly from the backlights. The construction, which is plastic, but is tight, that is, it has no parts that have games, neither the barrel, nor the ghieres of MaF and zoom. In addition, the length remains practically constant from 28 to 70mm.

Pros: Compact, light, stabilised, reactive, definite, economical.

Cons: Variable aperture... in the video is kinda a problem to manage

Opinion: I know, it's a cheap lens, often sold in kits, but I never like to stop at appearances let alone then if we talk about equipment then I gave him a chance! If you want to make a better opinion I invite you to watch a test photo and video on the field, honest and real: Https://youtu.be/tOO2cgj9XMA I tested it in different situations and I think some skeptic maybe recreates:)

Pros: Little bulky as weight, good autofocus response and Bokeh effect.

Cons: New entry level of the lenses, manual a bit plasticoso, which certainly does not push further to enhance the characteristics of a Sony alpha III. Marginal sharpness drop at 70mm.

Opinion: I make a premise: I own it for an early choice and economic restriction in purchasing. I've owned it for almost a year. In the landscape photo where you need the sharpness of the whole field, you notice that the marginal areas suffers a bit. Seldom two or three times gave me hint of vignetting, without the understanding why. It was at least a 24-70, but from here you understand that already exists (but the Gold series) f/2.8 and the economic leap is high. All in all for the cost of the lens, if the photographer, does not have big demands, does his. To me, I personally do not meet for what I want to get from a lens.
