Review Date: Jun 17, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $210.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, SHARP!!! - much sharper than you'd expect from a "cheap plastic lens", lightwieght, quite solid build for a "plastic bayonet cap", great IS
Cons:
Rotating front element, plastic mount

Well, I bought this lens just because I wanted to have something larger than 200 mm (already have 70-200 F/4 L) - and thought that I can afford $200 even if the overall quality is "far far away" from L's.

I was positively surprised by the overall image quality, especially sharpness. It IS sharp in the corners at 250 mm (or maybe I got a good copy). Contrast and colors are also good.

Of course it is "not an L", but, honestly, how many of us will be able to tell the difference by just looking at the pictures?
