Very surprise, since it a kit's lens but IQ performance not that bad, just to post some photos and comment on this cheap lens.
IQ: stopdown to f9, @18mm very decent usable for normal print or on screen.
@55mm very good when view at 100%, I will not try to use this lens wide open especially at wide end.
IS: at begining never beleave that IS function will help on wide zomm lens, it realy help when you need to stopdown the lens for it performance.
