    Cons: CAs, 300 mm not really sharp lens must be stopped down to f 13 in order to get better sharpness

    Pros: big zoom range fast AF

    Summary: a good lens for voyages and small magnifications - not on professional level

    Cons: Poor stabilization performance; optical quality could be a little better at 300mm.

    Pros: Extremely light and small package for a very handy zoom range. Sharp image at most settings. Fast focus. Close focus ability.

    Summary: This lens replaced my 70-300 as my zoom lens and made a very convenient set with an ultra-wide-zoom and a 50/85mm prime. For most settings it is very sharp and handy on my 24MP body. The weakness is at 300mm, where it is not that sharp if you are a hair-splitter, even stopped down, and the slow aperture (f/6.3) and poor stabilization (estimated only 2-stop) often force me to use higher ISOs. Still I think this is THE travelling lens to go for a FF body. Compared to Canon and Nikon 28-300 lenses it is much smaller and lighter with comparable performance, and compared to 70-300 lenses it is lighter, with much closer focus and covers much more focal range.
