I'm holding it side-by-side to my GM lenses - yes the plastic feels different, but it definitely doesn't feel cheap.

It's just plain black plastic. Many premium-grade lenses utilize plastic in outer body, but often it has some decorative finish to create a "premium" feeling. Many Sony lenses feel more "expensive" because of metal outer shells, even in some really cheap models.

But this doesn't relate at all to optical quality or reliability.
