Build quality

Quite well put together but the exterior is plastic and the feel is not the best.


Conclusion

Overall a nice lens.
Image quality is good and its quite small and lightweight.
But plastic exterior and not the best feel.


Thumbs up:
Image quality
Small and lightweight


Thumbs down:
Plasticky
