compared to:Sigma 18mm
Sony 18-70mm

positive:Cheap solidly constructed lens looks like it will be very robust
It is quite small and takes little room in your bag or pocket
I have found colour and sharpness to be very good no sun to test flare roll on summer
negative:The Zen finish had gone very sticky felt nasty and I have cleaned it off that's about it negative
comment:I like this lens it takes up so little space yet feels really solid and well built AF works fine on A350 and A450 and I don't have any issues with the other functions on the camera
It has produced some nice results for me
