Works fine, sometimes surprisingly well


for me the 18-55 is always a mixed bag. Sometimes the pictures are kind of .. hmm .. wired, but on the other side most of the time it delivers very well.

Especially wide open and at 55mm it can produce lovely images - however, it is no 2.4 60

Both attached pictures are at f4 and 55mm, both a casual "snapshots".
