Strengths:    affordable
sharp pictures
well built, high quality

Weaknesses:    pictures could use a little more contrast, but this is only a minor weakness.

Bottom Line:   
I'm impressed with this lens, takes clear pictures at any f stop but f11 and above is where it really works best. I find it most useful for traveling, zooming in from 28 to macro. The pictures were as sharp as my Pentax 28-90 zoom. An all around great lens for the money.
