Sony DT 16-50mm f/2.8 35mm Zoom
The Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 Standard Zoom Lens is a compact DT lens that fits APS-C sensor cameras with the Sony A-mount. In addition to the wide-angle to mid-range telephoto zoom, the lens features a large 2.8 aperture. Extra-low dispersion glass works to reduce ghosting, flare, and chromatic aberration, while asperhical lens elements also correct aberrations at wide-angles.

Strengths: Fast, color, build, DOF control.
Weaknesses: Sometimes it searches more than I would like in low light, requires some post processing as far as some sharpening.
I like this lens a lot, it never comes off of my alpha 100, it is a way better lens than camera. It needs to be on at least an a700. It is fast accurate and well built. I got a real good deal on it, I did not pay retail. But for anyone looking for a new lens don't pass this one up.
