ownership:I used to own this lens
compared to:beercan
price paid:60 euros
positive:Cheap, good tele-zoom lens for a starter, light
negative:Build, bad image quality
comment:This was my first tele zoom lens, bought sometimes ago and used a lot during travels. It is not a good lens, but it's a low-budget glass, not a pro one. Very light, it is almost plastic (sometimes i guess the lenses are in plexiglas too :P), and a bit slow. Images are not sharp until you go to f11 (but sharpness is generally not good), colors are on an orange tone.
