It is a kit lens. You will find that the 19 and 30mm Sigmas, 24mm Zeiss and 50mm f/1.8 Sony will provide much better images. I only use mine for outdoor video. On the other hand, it might be worth having until the Sony Standard G lens comes out. You won't lose much upon resale.

Problem is:
The time your change your lens, it could be too late for taking the shot.
The risk of getting durst on your sensor.

I have a bunch of fixed lenses for my NEX, but I use 80% of the time the 18-55, because the stab, the convenience of the zoom (but I use it mainly at 24mm) and the IQ who's good enough for most of the time.
