missing
positive:Image quality

comment:This lens doesn't feel so solid as the Tamron 24-135mm, and that's what made me sell it and keep the Tamron. Even optically the Tamron seems to be better, specially in color and contrast. However this is a very good walkaround lens, compact and with a good image quality.
