If you want to learn mroe about the new and first Sony powerzoom E-mount lens here are some recent tests to read:

ePhotozine (Click here) posted the full 18-105mm G lens review:

Clearly, as this lens is aimed at video shooters, some of the optical issues may not be a concern for people recording moving images with this lens on an NEX camera. In fact, it is very good for this job.
Those shooting stills may be wary of the poor performance towards the edges of the frame at the telephoto end of the zoom, and the wild distortion that is present, as well as the high levels of fringing present. These issues make the lens difficult to recommend to those who may shoot stills with this lens.

As a photog it was the constant aperture and zoom length which draw me to this lens. From what I have seen until now it could be a good travel lens or even used for portraits.

The Japanese site Kasyapa (Google translation here) also posted firts image samples and impressions
