negative:The "feel" and quality of the image with this lens is poor.
comment:It is a slow lens with relatively poor definition and sharpness. It's lightweight but I thought it was maybe too lightweight. It feels cheap though the operation is smooth. The images shot were not well defined. I wouldn't waste my money on this lens.
