9 out of 10 points and recommendedFast focus in bright light, sharp images, zoom lockdistortion evident at wide angle, sometimes hunts to focus in low light.
Got this lens as Open box but obvious price mis-print for only $119. This lens at wide angle range 18-55 took sharper and more vivid pictures than the stock Sony SAM II 18-55 which I also own. The Sony SAM II did have quite a bit less distortion at 18mm, but software like DXO can fix that.reviewed February 13th, 2014 (purchased for $119)
Even though it says it Zooms to 270, the details in the photo information says 280mm focal point, which is a plus, an extra 10mm.
