FAST af!
Internal focusing
negative:colour a bit dull
comment:A great, small walk-around, great replacement to kit lens. Flare seems a non issue. Sharp throughout range (especially f8 and up). No worries with flare. Nice and strong hood. Af is very fast and the internal focus is quieter. All in all, a great lens.
