compared to:I have primes in this range that are faster and sharper, obviously. No zooms to compare.

positive:Weight, size, ergonomics. Solid build. Sharp enough at f/4. Renders images nicely with pleasant out of focus areas. Fast, silent and presice AF.
negative:Obviously it is not f/2.8, but that is not fair.
