W, Oxford Retired Optical engineer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great lens for travelling. With the wide Zoom Range covering most situations.
Overall performance is very good for the type of lens. Good value.
Bad points:
A little heavy. Does not have the optical performance of fixed focus but this is to be expected. Not great for low light work because of the limiting aperture size. You will need to use a Tripod.
