Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The lens gives a full range of focus lengths. It replaces most of the lenses in my bag. The stabilizer function works well and with a 62mm lens the minimum f setting is f3.5. The lens is easy to use and has a lock to stop the lens accidentaly opening in the case.Closed it's fairly compact given the width of focal lengths I've not used the lens too much but am ,so far, very happy with the results and it means that I can now go out with just the camera body and one lens to meet the majority of my needs
Bad points:
I've not used the lens too much since purchase but the only real problem I've experienced is a wait for auto focus (particularly in poor light) at its maximum setting (270mm)
The lens is also fairly heavy

RON, Carnoustie

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is versatile and a very good general lens, reducing the need to change lenses. It is not too heavy and a great size for carrying about all day. The image quality is good at both extremes and the zoom range is also very good without the need for a much heavier zoom lens.
Bad points:
It can be a bit slow to focus in low light but this is not a major problem. There is a bit of lens creep if you are pointing it down but again this can be easily overcome by keeping your hand on the lens and again not a major problem.
