Light weight
Sharper than any kit lens
negative:Focus hunting sometimes
comment:This lens was my walk around lens but went back in my bag when I got the Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DC as focus was slow on my 7D. Now I have it on the Sony Alpha A37 this lens is transformed. The focus is now quick even in low light. The IQ is improved but more down to the A37.
