There seems to be 3 classes of photographers here in MD. Casuals/Beginner, Enthusiasts, and Professionals. I'm wholely centered in the middle category, wherein as long as my photos look good overall, I'm not going to worry about small details that a professional or higher level enthusiast would. I believe it's the person behind the camera that makes the shot and not the gear itself. Look, this is a kit lens. One that Sony charges an extra $100 for to get. If you already own an extensive lens collection, then you probably don't need this. There's only a handful of scenarios that I could see people wanting to get this lens. 1) You purchased a cheap Sony camera body online and need a lens that won't terribly break the bank. Pretty Self Explanatory. If you just want to dabble in photography and you purchased a cheap E-mount off Ebay that didn't include a lens, then this isn't too bad of a deal. People will complain that it's a terrible lens, but from my use it's not a bad lens to just dip your toes in. 2) You want a somewhat versatile compact camera setup. Sometimes, people just want a nice point and shoot experience with their camera. This lens, with it's size and zoom capabilities, makes it a fairly fun shooter for nice casual photography (i.e. going on a roadtrip or visiting a museum, where the main purpose is not to take photos.) This is the primary reason I keep this lens in my collection instead of selling it off for dirt cheap. 3) You're just curious of how "bad" this lens is. Obviously, this lens is NOT really geared towards professionals and higher level enthusiasts. However, some people would make it sound like this is the worst lens ever. For what you pay for and for what you get (OSS, AF, PowerZoom) I think it's a nice little package. So should you buy it? Well if you don't cover at least one of the three possible scenarios I listed above I would say no. Or you could always buy it used. Are these amazing lenses? No, of course they're not. But I wouldn't say they're absolute garbage either. Some people can get some GREAT shots of this lens, just need to work a bit harder for them Anyways, that's my 2 cents on the matter. I'm sure some people will disagree with some of my statements but overall that's just my opinion on the lens. I'm open to discuss things in a civil manner if wanted.
