Jeffrey, Ballymoney

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, light and f1.8 is great on this lens. It is plastic and feels at first if you should handle with extreme care ( you would not throw a lens around anyway), but it is sturdy enough and I may have been spoilt trying to compare construction to an old minotla dynax lens which had a much more solid build.
Bad points:
none, get over that it is light and plastic, cost is in line with Sony but quality is Sony.

paul, Trowbridge in Wiltshire I am retired exserviceman

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As a Sony product (having all Sony equipment) I may be a little bias toward this particular lens. But I find it does eveything I ask of it.
Good image quality
Easy to handle
Good finish and clear information
Bad points:
As with all Sony products I find them a little expensive. (You get what you pay for I find.)

Not allways available when required

Gavin, Southsea

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
At this price point this lens can not be beat. Picked up this and the Marco from the same line. Both perform brilliantly and the difference between this and the (still very good) zoom lens that can with the camera is obvious. a great introduction to the world of "grown ups" cameras
Bad points:
none so far, Item is obviously a bit plastic at this price point that is to be expected though, will be interesting to see how long it lasts
