Bought this lens second hand. When I first took it in hands it felt very clumsy. The zoom ring is hard to operate (far from smoothnes of Sigma 18-50 DC EX f2.8) meaning that if you squezze it too much it wouldn't move, but if you hold it right it moves easely. One thing I don't like about this lens is that the front lens rotates when focusing so you can't use polarizer on it :mad:
On the other hand it produces quite consumable images that I'm pleased with and I use it more than Sigma 18-50 f2.8 DC EX.
Judge for your self.

All images are 25% resized followed by a 100% crop.
