Very nice feel and excellent image quality.
Very heavy to carry around.

Overall, I love this lens and it hardly ever parts from my AE-1P :)

It has lovely image quality and nice bokeh. However, if you want to use this lens in low light conditions I would recommend looking around for something different because the viewfinder can get pretty dark when shooting indoors.

Well built, sharp, nice lens coating, macro focusing
Heavy, must refocus when changing zoom length

Purchased this lens second hand after reading a review on line. There are two versions of this lens. The first version that is considered the better one has a 67mm filter thread. The second one has a 72mm filter thread. This lens is the first one and is quite sharp. Renders colors nicely. Front coating is good but could still benefit from a lens hood. Overall, I am very pleased with this lens.
