|comment:||An old dream of mine to have this lens. I bought it on the net, and it's in PERFECT condition. If You want a REAL quality zoom lens, with outstanding IQ, than don't need to search for other. Here is Your "body", here is Your choice :)|
First of all, It's "built like tank", but (okay it's relative) in my opinion it looks like good. Well.. It has a size and weight.. But in my opinion, every quality lens has a weight, so You have to carry it. So? If it's too much (about 700g) than don't buy it :) It's so simple. But when You start to use it... You will absolutly forget the weight. I promise You.
