comment:I bought this lens to keep on my Dynax 7 as travel buddy :) and it was best choice to do so. It's very light and sharp lens (Stopped down), It's good (not great) wide open too. It focuses fast and range of the zoom is great for Full frame or 35mm SLRs. I tried it with Slide film, Negative and B&W and result were great. I used it the most last summer and ran through over 20 rolls all came as expected. No regret. If you are looking for travel lens, I don't think you'll be disappointed with it
