Sony kit lens (18-70)

positive:good build
extremely sharp close-ups

comment:I bought a used one from an old Minolta kit for my Sony Alpha 200 and was surpirsed by the huge difference there was between the image quality of this lens and the Sony kit lens. I love this one and wish I could use it also instead of the kit lens (the range doesn't allow for that).
