Rate the NEX-5N kit lens, please.

Saw a NEX-5N on Craigslist, that interests me.  Includes the 18-55mm kit lens.  As a user of the this combo, what are your true impressions of this kit lens.  If I were to purchase this outfit, I would plan to use this combo for landscape/scenics for an upcoming trip.  dpreview seems to like the 5N quite a lot.  So I'm hoping that it was tested with the kit lens attached.

I'd still use my DSLR for fast action sports and ultra wide angle.  But would like to use the 5N and 18-55 for most everything else.  If I ended up really liking the NEX system, I might eventually take on this mirrorless system full time.

I appreciate any/all comments.  Thanks.
