comment:If you want to replace your kit lens, this is an good alternative .
A good reliable and solid lens.
If you need one 28-80 lenss, this one has the best build quality.
Macro mode is only manual but it gives sharp pictures.
This lens at a low price is good quality when compared with alpha kit lens.
I think that it is not so bad .
Recommendable, not that bad at all .
