    built quality, optical quality

    Ok it's a cheap lens.You get what you pay for.

    Built quality is very bad.

    A lot of problems with flare and ghosting, CA on a high level, barrel distortion at the wide end, light falloff wide open (untill f11), sharp only stopped down 2 stop.

    Replaced this with the Canon EF 28-135 due to softness all over and a general lack of contrast. The colors from this lens always looked washed out.

    The close focusing distance was nice. This lens is nearly capable of macro work (albeit with a low magnification ratio)

    One advantage is it is very light weight.
