price paid:900,- € new
positive:Well built, very versatile zoom range, very good IQ for a super-zoom
negative:Quite slow on the tele end
comment:It is a 10x zoom, so it is as usual for a super zoom a tradeoff. However it is delivering very good IQ for such a lens. Distortions are handled quite well, CA are very low, and it has nearly no flare problems. Sharpness in the Center is very good, and slightly stopped down also at the borders. At the tele end it disappints a little bit, but as raws still usable.

For me it is just a travel lens, in order to have an all-in-one with acceptable IQ. For serious shooting I have my primes.
