I think one of the best ever made APS-C kit lens in the market. Small and compact,lightweigt,sharp image+good contrast,natural splendid colors, full metal construction,4 fe image stabilization,fast maximum aperture of f/2.8,smooth linear motor-fast autofocus,very good close focus, 58mm filter size,good for video work,best travel and family lens.


No weather sealed,continues apeture ring function without f scale on the ring,in the corner on 18mm f11 not so sharp,little bit distorsion appear,price. Overall lens rating in this site not correct,real point for me is 4,30 !!!


In many situation go to lens for everyday use.
