    Cons: All plastic, mount included. Small glass diameter. Inexpensive coatings. Very poor quality and performing clutch mechanism

    Pros: It\'s dirt cheap and Made in Japan. The last attempt by Cosina to do AF lenses...

    Summary: There are 2 versions of this; a first edition with a rotating zoom and second edition in Silver or Black with push-pull zoom. This was by the Vivitar group of employees, investors, and interested parties who took ownership operation and contracted with Cosina to build lenses. This first edition weighs 430 G and the second 500 G. This ownership group folded and sold out in 1998, manufacturing was Korean following

    Cons: plastic built, focus ring is slipping easily, not so sharp for macro

    Pros: very sharp up to 300mm, good results, without stopping down, best sharpness, when stopping down to f8-11
