    Cons: Built quality is plastic. Plastic Mount. Not the best focal range for cropped frame DSLR. Apeture of f3.5-5.6 is both frustrating and poor in low light. Autofocus is noisy and manual focusing is rough.

    Pros: Good quality optics. Light and versatile. AWESOME value.

    Summary: Would not recommend. Old, and pointless. Back in the day though this was a solid enough lens for someone with a low end DSLR and on a very low budget.
