Re: Your pics made me change my mind about this lens. Now it's on short list for a 2nd travel lens

The Luminous Landscape review mentioned that as a negative. I'm happy with the build quality and weight of the lens. Whether there are some plastic components or not it doesn't feel cheap or poorly built at all.

It's probably just a habit, when holding lens of this price tag I expect it to be a bit heavier. No real reason (yet) to call it poor build quality, for sure. It certainly doesn't feel that sturdy like Canon EF 16-35, Nikon 14-24 etc. but light weight is what most will appreciate on NEX anyway.

We'll see... I am a bit afraid that the glossy finish will be prone to scratches, but otherwise it looks nice.
