positive:Range.

Utility.
Weight.
negative:Not much, compared to what you're getting.
comment:Obviously you know the greatest strength of this lens: a hyperzoom STARTING at 16mm.
Coma is pretty well controlled and pictures are reasonably sharp, especially stopped down. Contrast is reasonably good and these can be adjusted in an editor anyway.
On the whole, it's a terrific hyperzoom that does a little bit of everything for a reasonable price.
A very good Jack of all trades.
