Check out the Sony SAM 18-135. It has a quieter motor than the kit lens and also has manual focus override. I have a A580, so AF does not work during video but I would venture to say the AF really is quiet enough for video.

Good luck!

I'd agree with this.

The 18-135 lens is very quite something for the price. I absolutely love mine and it has hardly been off my A57 since the day I brought it.

In fact I am selling my Tamon 17-50 f2.8 as I find the Sony much better in most scenarios (for me).
