    Cons: Push/pull zoom is a bit odd Very heavy

    Pros: Very good image quality Focal length range Image Stabilization

    Summary: Very solid lens and produces good consistent results. It is very heavy and you will definitively know it's there when walking around with it. One thing that is odd about this lens is the zooming mechanism, basically you push out to zoom in and pull back to zoom out; it just takes some time to getting used to. I do like focal range as it allows for a lot of flexibility.
