|price paid:||kit with a700|
|positive:||- Price (Kit lens)|
- Very versatile Range
|negative:||- Zoom and Focus rings|

|comment:||A very decent kit lens for the a700. Build quality is not the best out there, but a very good piece of kit. Range is incredible, it's a perfect walk-around lens. Ideal as a one-lens solution when you need to go light on trips and such.|
Zoom and focus rings are pretty tight. No zoom lock, but then again, when zooming is so tight, it's not really needed.
I found flare control to be an issue when the sun is just out of the frame, using my hand as a sunshield somewhat helps.
It was a it redundant with the Tamron 17-50/2.8, so I ended up trading it for a Sigma 10-20
