    Cons: AF noisy and not very fast (but accurate), no IS (cannot be expected at this price), not so hot with noticeable CAs at the long end (like most cheap telezooms)

    Pros: extremely sharp in the center up to 70 mm, very good up to 135 mm, light, decent build quality for the price, included hood, f=4 up to 135 mm is nice.

    Summary: I use it mostly for shooting people (not sports) outdoors, due to good center sharpness even wide open it is very suitable for this purpose. Not so good for sports due to slow AF, wildlife (no IS, 200 mm not great). Almost unbeatable price/permance ratio.

    Cons: no metal mount, a lot of plastic. slow and noisy AF, soft at 200mm

    Pros: nice range on APS-C, good picture quality from 55-170mm when stopped down a little. F4.0 up to 135mm and sharp with F5.0, very light - nice for travel

    Summary: Good value for the money, but due to slow AF not for sports events.
