Strengths:    Size/ weight, speed, wide angle capabilities, saturation, VR and price.

Weaknesses:    None on my copy

Bottom Line:   
Stunning - excellent general purpose but saturation on landscape pictures is superb. Fast focussing with VR stabilisation makes this my No 1 lens and it is used even more than my 18-200mm.
I also have the 24-85mm D which is also great but tends to get left for close ups mainly.
Small and unassuming in stature but mighty in action. Thoroughly recommended.
