This second generation Alpha kit zoom, a 27–82mm equivalent, has unusually strong distortion and vignetting control at longer focal lengths, plus excellent sharpness. Its rubberized rings are rare in a kit zoom.
This new entry level wide-to-moderate-tele kit zoom ($200, street) was unveiled with the Sony Alpha 230, 330, and 380 cameras and is designed for APS-scaled sensors. A 27–82mm full-frame equivalent, it boasts Sony’s relatively new Smooth AF Motor (SAM).
