price paid:$250 CDN used
positive:Light
Small enough
Decent zoom range to start with
negative:It would be great if it went to 24mm on the wide end. There are other options for that anyway.
comment:Nice light starter lens for an e-mount FF camera. I'm very happy with the images I can get using this lens. I plan on purchasing higher grade lenses like the 24-105 G in time. I will keep this as a light weight option even then.
