Pros: Zoom Range, VC, Macro Capabilities
Cons:
Auto Focus a bit slow at times

I do not know why this lens is getting bad reviews. It is well constructed (very tight lens, much better than my Canon 28-135 USM IS lens). I wonder if people are not taking the time to learn how to shoot well with this lens. I went out for a couple weekends and practiced shooting with it, trying varying f-stops etc and was able to get some extremely sharp shots. F6.3-F8.0 seems to be the best setting throughout the range. I was also able to get a lot of great macro shots (nice bokeh).

For a single walkaround lens this one fits the bill very well.
