Image quality

Analogue B&W film
Really impressive for a zoom lens.
Nice and sharp and little corner softness even wide open.
But you do get quite noticeable vignetting wide open.

Filming

Build quality


Great build quality.


Conclusion

This lens far exeden what I expected of this lens image quality wise.
Great image quality but you loose some of it at 200mm and 300mm but still very good.

Awesome lens and I only wish it would be a little better then f/4.5-f/5.6 but of course that would make it a lot heavier.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality
Nice bokeh

Thumbs down:
Vignetting wide open
