    Price/performance ratio can't be beat. Metal mount! Comes with lens hood that is reversible. Light lens with out feeling too cheap. Great for back yard bird/critter watching (within 30 feet). I've taken some full frame shots of squirrels that are very nice. Lens cap is easily removed with lens hood on!


    There are not too many. It could be a tad sharper, but then it would cost more. IT is very usable as is. I'm not going to say the speed is a weakness as you are buying a f4 lens. If you want to shoot low light go pay for a f2.8.

    Decent entry level extended zoom. Plenty sharp for consumer use. Take the MACRO feature with a grain of salt though. 4.9ft min focus and does NOT make this a macro lens by any stretch of the imagination. Smooth zoom ring though. Of the plastic zooms I have handled this one is decent. Focus ring is a tad rough but still not as bad as some other plastic lenses I have handled.
