Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Quality pictures from a reasonably compact lens. A very useful focal range to have if you just want to walk around with the one lens. Wide end of range ideal when you can't step back to get the shot.
Bad points:
None.

Stephen , London honest thorough researcher relaxed

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
If you have spent a long time reading reviews on what lens to buy as I did you will have read this Lens does not have any bad reviews. This is because this lens is Excellent. The build quality, in fact everything about this lens is ' top notch'. Haven't had it long but the pictures I have taken so far give a Prime Lens Quality from a Zoom Lens.
Bad points:
The one and only bad point if you can call it bad is the Price. But if you want this quality and this sharpness from a Lens then accept , you are going to have to pay this sort of money and move on. Order your 16 85 lens now, its worth it.
