Colin, Donhead St Mary

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This lens is undoubtedly excallent with respect to its optics and build.
Bad points:
The one thing that I personally find difficult is the weight. I use it on a Sony A700 and the combination feels just right but I just can't hand-hold it. True, I am 77 yeras of age which does not help; so I just have to use a tripod and this obviously limits the lenses usefulness. No doubt many folk can hold the camera and lens combination without any trouble.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Apart from one area this lens is very good apart from my concern below.
Bad points:
The zoom mechanism is stiff in places and nothing like as smooth as other manufacturers. Even my kit lenses are better.

Vince, Gloucestershire An amateur photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Slow to auto-focus, but sharp images at even full extent with anti-shake 'on' and without tripod. Amazing. Very pleased with all the images I have taken so far. Though I am still an amateur photographer I'm glad I purchased this lens to accompany the 16 50.
Bad points:
The Zoom Ring being at the front does make it slightly awkward in use as your hand is away from the body of the camera.
