        This lens is used as my basic tool for wildlife photography, used for walking around with before I change to a longer focal length lens on a tripod. It is more versatile than advertised and very easy to use.

            This lens is worth the selling price and I recommend it to anyone requiring clear supper sharp photographs at every lens setting. Just the right lens for travel or in your own backyard.

              This is an excellent walk around lens. Fast, sharp focus, and excellent color. I bought this lens for my A65 and liked it so much I bought another one for my A77. I have used it basically for landscape and the photos are excellent. To me it is a bargain priced lens and more than worth the price.

                I purchased to replace the original lens that came with my Alpha. I wish I had purchased this with the camera. Better optics, better focal lengths and better auto-focus. This uses an internal motor in place of the body-gear system of the original lens.

                  I purchased this with a Sony SLT-A57 package, and am glad I went this route rather than the 18-55 kit lens combo. The 18-135 is a very practical range, that balances well on the A57 body. Really good IQ. While not the fastest lens out there, at least on the A57, AFs very quickly and accurately. Great colors.
