Sony AF DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM A-mount lens review by kije
|kije#10115 date: Apr-13-2012|
flare control: 3
|ownership:||I own this lens|
good range (even on APS-C)
good beginner lens
minimum focus distance
|negative:||distortions on high contrast |
focus-ring has no grip, so its not very usable for manual focusing
|comment:||I'm a beginner, and this is my first lens (was in the Sony alpha SLT-A35K kit).|
The lens is very good for beginners, it's cheap but sharp and makes good pictures. Positive is also the very small minimum focus distance. 0.25 m are very near for taking beautiful photos of flowers etc.
The only thing I think is bad is that when you take photos from a high-contrast motive (for example a tree's branches in front of a very bright, cloudy sky), the edges are not really sharp.
