Build quality

Very nice and solid.
Also good feel to it.


Conclusion

Build quality is very nice and image quality is not that bad for a zoom lens.
Sharpness at 70mm is quite good but get worse the more you zoom.
Did get a light spot towards the middle at smaller apertures.
This spot have not been there on all the test shots with the same aperture.
And I have read that this can be caused of internal reflections inside the lens.

Overall good value considering what you can find this lens for.
