I haven't found any professional reviews, but there are several user reviews out there - generally very positive, but with the warning that there is severe distortion, especially at the "long end". Keep in mind that you can easily avoid this distortion if you always shoot JPEG, because distortion is corrected in the camera. Alternatively, if you shoot RAW, the major RAW processing programs like ACR, Lightroom, and DxO Optics all have correction modules.

Below are the user reviews I found. There are probably many others.

Amazon user reviews, 4.5 out of 5 stars, but only 9 reviews http://www.amazon.com/Sony-SELP18105G-PZ-18-105mm-OSS/dp/B00ENZRQH8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392644815&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+18-105mm+f+4g+e+pz+oss

Bhphotovideo, 13 reviews, 3.5 stars out of possible 5 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1001011-REG/sony_selp18105g_18_105mm_f_4_g_lens.html

Dyxum (only one user review, but seems quite well-informed and generally positive) http://www.dyxum.com/reviews/lenses/Sony-18-105mm-F4-G-PZ-OSS_review721.html

Thanks for the responses and it is strange that there are no reviews of a Sony G lens that has been available for quite a while. Could be a great lens but I am reluctant to take a gamble.. would be great to hear from more users here.
