    Hi all,
    I have not seen shots shared for some time with this lens. I could not also find the post with the sample images. I only found many offers for selling this lens.
    As that I wanted to share some shots with that lens.

    Regards
    Alex

    This lens gets horrible reviews, but then I see great results like this.

    I'm quite a picky guy when it comes to lenses, but I found my 18-55mm sample to be very good. Biggest concern is somewhat of a dull, greyish overall picture rendition, but sharpness is critically OK in a large part of the frame. Now this is not a premium lens so results may vary widely across the actual samples, knowing Sony's quality control or sometimes the lack thereof.

    Nice! Well composed and rendered.
    I like my copy of the SEL1855 as well. It's been quite satisfactory. Mine is a black-bodied version, a later release. Not certain if any undocumented differences with the silver model.

    Isn't this the kit lens? Amazing pics using this. I thought the 16-50 had all bit removed this from the market

    Yes this is my first lens that came with the camera. Not the 16 50 but the 18 55

    That's exactly my observation, a sharp lens but clinically cold and dull. And suffers serious drop in contrast when shooting srongly backlit subjects. Still, a good lens to grab for a casual shoot when you don't want to carry a large setup and want some versatility.
