Pros: lightweight, fast focusing, sharp and affordable
Cons:
Plastic construction

Took the advise from the reviews posted here and glad I did.
This little lens has a lot of bang for the buck, superfast focus, construction is sturdy (plastic eechh!) and images are quite sharp. At it's min focal length @3.5 it's a little soft but the images are totally usable, a little sharpening and the clean right up. At max length with the app. @4.5 were nice and sharp, on par with the 50mm 1.8. Overall I don't think you could find a better lens for the money anywhere. My only problem is it's made out of plastic. the mount is metal at least and time will tell if it starts to get sloppy
