compared to:
price paid:$200(USED)
positive:Compact and Lightweight
Practical focal range
Build quality
Sharp at F8~
negative:Soft at 90~105mm
Chromatic aberration
comment:I used to combine it with 100-300APO for travel. The compact size and light weight are really fit fot this. Also the build quality is decent and the sharpness is very good at F8~. But the optical quality is a little weak at the tele-end and it has some CA problem.
