price paid:
positive:Picture quality for no price, 200 gramm weight
negative:Just a plastic kit lens
comment:I you are tired and need light quality zoom to attach to A900 body, that's it. Centre sharpness is very good even wide open, borders get nice when stopped down to F5,6-8, corners are poor but acceptable when stopped down - that's the matter of size.
