Andrew, Shropshire

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It's the standard lens that comes with the camera and it feels nicely made. Portraits shot with it aren't bad. It's a decent enough everyday lens and if you're only going to take photos that are enlarged to around A4 it'll do the job nicely.
Bad points:
Not the last word in resolution, by any stretch of the imagination. Not that good for landscapes.
