I just hope they did a better job with this one than the POS kit lens
they sold with the KM cameras (and I'd assume it was the same lens on
the A100). I hated that lens SOOO much. 105mm @ f5.6 seems awful
slow. Hopefully they'll have an advanced kit with the CZ!

Word is that the Sony 18-70mm is better than the KM 18-70mm so, I guess, they did something to it.

Yeah, the Canon 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 is slow at 55mm too. Kit lenses tend to be slow. Someone on the Sony forum that has used the A700 and 16-105mm says that optically it is better than the Sony 18-70mm, but not as good as the Sony Zeiss 16-80mm f3.5-4.5. Pretty much what one would expect.
