Good sharpness even wide open but you have some corner softness but I have seen a lot worse.
You get more vignetting and corner softness the more you zoom but you still get some nice pictures at 200mm.

Build quality

Solid as a rock and great built.


Conclusion

Great lens!
Solid as a rock and have good image.
The macro funktion workes great and you get some really nice and sharp images.
But closest focus of 2m (7ft) is not that impresive and you have some corner softness.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality
Macro

Thumbs down:
Closest focus of 2m (7ft)
Corner softness
