I'm not too impressed with the Sony 18-70mm kit lens. So, I started searching for a possible replacement. While browsing Amazon, I came across this little Tamron lens being sold for $39.99 w/ free shipping and no sales tax. After reading a few feedbacks, I decided to go ahead and take the chance. If I did not like it for any reason, I could simply send it back. Well, it turns out this is an awesome lense for the price. It's compact (smaller than the kit lens), it's sharp, it produces beautiful images and it has a longer FL (not as wide but I'd go for more zoom any time. Besides, if I really need the extra 10mm on the wide side, I can always switch to the kit. Anyway, it is certainly a keeper. Here are some samples...
