negative:Nothing to mention, perhaps a little soft at the long end.
Screw drive is a bit out dated these days but with careful shooting does not pose a big issue.
comment:Found this for a low price so happy with the purchase.
Update: adjusted my points up to 5, this lens is actually great, sharp even at 400 wide open. No issues with it at all.
