positive:Fairly light and small, AF is quite good, no noticeable issues with flare or distortion. The price is right!
negative:It's hard to really knock it for anything. It feels a little less solid than my other lenses. The LED panel and extra side button, in my opinion, are a gimmick. Others may not think so. My impression is the lens draws more power— maybe due to the LED panel? AF is not on par with my 20/1.8G or 50/1.2GM, but is that fair to compare?
comment:I feel like I took a gamble buying this, and it paid off. Well worth the price. If you are leaning toward buying it, go for it.
