Pros: convenience, clarity
Cons:
vignetting - unacceptable

received the lens yesterday after a 3 week wait - couldn't wait to play with it. Took a couple of quick snaps to ensure everything was working. Put them on the screen and almost fainted when I saw how bad the vignetting is especially at 200mm. Very noticeable against light background eg skies.

I've already complained to where I bought it and will provide them with a range of samples at various settings. I think this lens will be going back. Shame I held high hopes for it. I shoot a lot of loutdoors so this is a major disappointment for me and I don't feel like spending all my nights in Photoshop.

Maybe I just got a dud
