Max, Manchester

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
For a physically small lens it has a very large range of focal lengths and as such I would have expected some distortion. It probably has some distortion but none that I can detect in use, in fact I think the lens is a little marvel and I have had no need to take it off the camera since I bought it.
It is far better than I expected and I am delighted with it.
Bad points:
None worth mentioning.

Jon, Portland, Oregon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
No need to change lenses as this lens covers from wide angle to telephoto!
Sharpness is surprisingly good for a lens with this great of zoom range. Not tack sharp, but still in the good range..
Very light weight and compact.
Bad points:
Noticeable barrel distortion at the wide end. (18mm)
Small minimum aperture (f6.3) at the long end (250mm) means you need plenty of light.
Build quality is light weight plastic- just adequate..
Zoom ring is a not smooth.
Not as sharp as a two lenses of with less focal length range, (but that is to be expected).

Good points:
Love the 14x zoom. Great build. Take awesome shots.
Bad points:
Little heavy but that is expected with the great zoom. Just need to watch out when taking pictures closer to 18mm you will get black in the corners. You can easy crop them out in post production but that will take time.
