Great Optiocs, Mediocre Build

Fantastic value! Sharp at 2.8, lovely color and contrast, compact and handy enough to hang off your shoulder all day. Just be careful not to bang it against a wall or doorway too hard as the plasticy build quality will brook none of that nonsense.

Problems:

i-TTL integration on Nikon bodies sucked - erratic exposure behavior when using fill-flash with this lens. Not a problem for Nikon-branded lenses, but common in off-brand lenses.
