negative:Weight(not really)
Focal range(?)
comment:Did I mention this lens is sharp - you better believe it, so much so it rivals a prime. The weight tho' considerable is also an advantage if build quality is taken into account. This lens will last and last and gives you great confidence.
To nit-pick, it would be an unbelievable lens if the range was 24-105. At todays prices it's a steal.
