Build Quality Performance Value for money Recommendable
Build quality is terrible. I've ranked it at 2 stars simply because it hasn't fallen apart yet. But you can definitely feel that it's held together with chewing gum. The manual focus ring feels like it's grinding away at the lens interior, straight out of the box this lens felt very cheap.
The auto-focus system is accurate enough, hitting about 4 out of 5 times. It sounds like a V8 coffee grinder though and the lens tube extends like mad through the focal range. I found in real-world conditions the AF system is quite erratic though, sometimes it focuses fast and with precise accuracy on subjects that I'd expected the lens to struggle with, and visa versa, sometimes it struggled to lock on to very easy subjects. I'd recommend shooting on el-servo and letting the lens play a bit over the subject, that seemed to make the AF system hone in faster.
But the image quality is what really sells this lens. Simply put, when it hits, it hits hard. Despite the plastic feel, slow AF motor, terrible MF ring and noisy operation this lens delivers astonishingly crisp results, easily on par with lenses triple it's price.
All in all, I'd average it around 3-4 stars, the image crispness really makes up for the build quality, but for it's price I had hoped for something that feels a bit more rugged. (Posted on 13/02/2016)
