    Focus motor is slightly louder than the standard 18-55mm sony sam.

    I was worried that low price would equal low quality, but i did need a starter zoom for the camera.

    Twisting the barrel to zoom is not buttery smooth so i gave it 4 stars.

    Consider what you are looking for (ie 300mm top end or speed etc) for new full frame lenses look at the sony 70-300mm g or tamron 70-300mm usd lens both are solid lenses.

    There were no mechanical problems reported by other reviewers.
