Nice little package

Let's get one thing out of the way: this is not the sharpest/fastest zoom lens for Sony E cameras.

There, with that out of the way, let's look at some of the perks of this lens. Weighing in just over 400g, it is very comfortable to carry around. Auto-focus is quite fast and silent for photo/video. f/4 constant aperture makes it great for video. Bokeh is alright considering it is only f/4, but I always have a fast prime with me anyways (who doesn't). Considering its price point, it is a pretty good option of people who likes to travel a lot and don't need the faster aperture. The sony 24-105 f/4 is a pretty good alternative, but that's almost at double the price. Yes, Tamron did recently release the 28-75 f/2.8, but that is 4mm narrower than this lens (4mm in wide angle is quite a big difference)

All of the above is just my opinion, please take it with a grain of salt.
