Well the wedding is over and it was a very fun wedding. Relying mainly on a rented Selp18105g for most of the pictures. I've got to say , i was a little underwhelmed with it. It seemed soft at f4.5 to 5.6. f4.0 was totally useless for stills. It is extremely sensitive to shake even at the wide end. Could not go below 1/80 shutter speed at 18mm ( more like 20mm ) even with Shake reduction on. I attribute this to the lens design,, because i can do 1/60 just fine with the kit lens. But all that is not the bad part. i have had to spend soooo much time in post processing each shot to correct the barrel/ pin cushion distortion of the lens, it's all over the place. (im still editing pictures) On the positive side, Oddly enough, the a6000 preferred the 18-105mm for video even over my sel50f18. Shake reduction while in video mode was actually very good. and video was bright in dark situations,, even brighter than my 50mm prime at wider apertures. I'm guessing that there was more exposure adaptive information being exchanged with the camera than was happening with the prime. This lens is very light compared to its competitors. Internal zoom was nice as well. I rented the SELP18105g from Borrowlenses.com. It arrived with a bit of a ding in the barrel, which i called them about, they assured me it was "Cosmetic" otherwise it would not of been shipped out. I have no clue if the ding affected image quality. Well first wedding with a digital camera. Freezing temps = indoor shooting + yellow background = Ugh! Don't think i will do another, im getting to old for the stress.
