Summary: I used this lens with the panasonic AF100 so my review may not be relevant for DSLR users, but I hated this lens. Everything about it really, the construction is really crappy plastic, the image is bad and if you plan on manually focusing this lens think again! beware!
Summary: This lens is a superb addition to my growing lens collection. Combined with my 70-300mm VR lens, I have a ton of capability in a small package. This lens is a great value for me. I suppose someday I'll move up to a more expensive wide-angle, but I'll have to REALLY need to. Pros: Great value, light-weight, sturdy. Feels solid and comfortable when shooting manually. Cons: Focus ring is very touchy and just a slight touch will spin it.
