That is where the price corners are cut on this one. Body build. Remember if you use filters or hoods on it, hold the front barrel (rather than just holding the zoom grip) when you are adding or removing them to take the strain off the delicate plastic sprockets inside. It's the Achilles heel of these ones I think. Do this and treat the lens with due care and it will serve you very well I suspect, same as all these budget end Canons.

The one serious conviction one should hold is that nothing should be taken too seriously.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without necessarily accepting it. -Aristotle
..oh, and I see by the lack of responses that I am right yet again.
