I agree that the 40-150/4-5,6 regarding IQ is an excellent lens, very sharp. I have got one myself. It is not badly built, but it has indeed a very plastic feeling. The good thing is that it is light, the bad thing that you have a feeling you have to be very careful when using it. I wouldn't mind a faster lens with equal or better sharpness, fixed 2,8 aperture, metal built and weather sealed. And a nice 2x extender as well!

Even if it breaks, what with the plastic mount and all, it's cheap to replace. But I'd avoid the regular use of those cheap telexteders. They can really degrade picture quality.
