positive:Nice range , Lightweight , Sharp steeped up

comment:It's worth the money i paid for it...I was looking for a good walkaround lens w/ a little more reach than my Sigma 24-70 f2.8. I started using it for everyday non specialized shooting. Not the sharpest lens in my bag but it serves the purpose i intended it for .
