Build quality

Plastic but still quite well put together.
However not the best feel to it.


Conclusion

Like this lens.

Very small and lightweight but still quite good image quality.
Can also focus down to 0.35m (1.15ft) which is a nice plus.

The hole exterior is plastic however so the feel is not all that great.
But lens mount is metal and it feel quite well put together.
