positive:Nice for scenery
Quick focusing
affordable
negative:Flare is rather disturbing
Good only at F 7,1 and above
comment:I am happy with the lens, although it is a bit tricky sometimes that we have to use the lens at F 7,1 and above, however it is in accordance to my type of picture where I always need a good depth of field.

Indeed the quality of the picture is very sharp when we use F, 7,1 and above, NOT dissapointing at all!

It is worth to be owned!
