Instead of asking how crappy is the lens, you should be asking about how crappy is Sony's quality control.

I don't question those who claim they are getting great results from the lens - why would they lie?  But I bought two of them and had to send them both back due to unacceptable quality loss about two-thirds away from the center of the frame.

I really liked using the lens and I'd like to have a good compact normal-range zoom.

So my question is - How many do I need to buy to get a good one?
