Re: Your pics made me change my mind about this lens. Now it's on short list for a 2nd travel lens

Thanks for the images.

I was able to shoot with the lens at my local Sony store too. It didn't strike me as plastic. I am a pretty good at telling plastic from metal (by its ability to conduct heat away from body parts)

What made you conclude its plastic?

You might be right... Yesterday I was 100% sure it was plastic. Today I managed to get my own copy and looking to it more carefully, it might be a combination of aluminum and plastic, but no solely plastic. Certainly some parts (bellow the zoom ring i.e.) are made of plastic, but the rest of the barrel could be aluminum or some other light steel. Thanks for pointing that out, I will throw that info out from my blog.
