comment:I never go out without it. It is one of the few lenses that you will always find in my camera bag. It’s a nice size for a standard zoom. I thought it would be much bigger when I ordered it.

EDIT I havet used this lens in a long long time as the KM 28-75mm2.8 just kills it. but i keep it as a back up STD zoom
