Compact kit lens
Purchased: Came with the a6000 as kit lens 3 years ago
Image quality: Average sharpness. There is a little distortion but CA and vignetting is minimal
Focusing: Focus is fast at the wide end but poor at the long end mostly due to the poor aperture of the lens. Focus is silent, which is good.
Build quality: All scratched up after 3 years, but survived a hit onto a lamp-post from the front (filter absorbed the shock and broke). Optical quality did not degrade after the years.
Power Zoom: Accurate and noise is minimal (although it could be picked up on the mic)
Overall: Very compact lens but not very good optically. Get this as kit lens if you are planning to not do any specialised photography. If there is budget, get the 16-70 f4 lens, which is much better in optical quality.
