comment:Really have a good time with this lens. Price-performance ratio is very good IMO. The sharpness is even beter than Min 75-300mm or Min 100-300mm. The range suits me very well for a walk around telezoom lense. Don't really caree for its build quality as it always delivers good pictures. It's also light for travel, definetely a keeper.
