Strengths:    Sharp
Lightweight


Weaknesses:    None for the price range

Bottom Line:   
Sharp & contrasty. Nice colors with my KM 7D Edges are acceptable at all focal lengths. Great alternative to the bigger and more expensive Sigma 70-200mm/2.8. Optical quality comparsion at Photozone puts the the Sigma at 4.09 and the KM at 4.0. To close to cal for me. I believe this lens has better color than the Sigma. There are better lenses, but not in this price range.
