price paid:375,- second hand
positive:Very useful reach. Constant f/4. Fast AF. Stopped down to f/5.6 good IQ. OSS works quit well.
negative:Distortion if not corrected. (Extreme) corners not tacksharp at f/4. Some flare under tricky conditions.
comment:Very useful WA zoom with constant f/4 diafragm. Not to bulky and lightweight. Fast and accurate AF. Often used for video in relativly small rooms. And a favourite companion for landscapes.
