Re: Why the Sony 18-55 kit lens is so underrated?

I think it's a nice,light,good quality lens.As has been mentioned,although plastic,it seems tough enough to me,it's not meant to knock nails in!

A metal lens is twice as heavy,but it doesn't mean that the optical qualty is any better,it could be a lot worse.

I have read reviews which have rated the Sony kit lenses as better than the Canon or Nikon eqivalents,and Sony make some great cameras,so why sell them with crap lenses?.
