Gary,
I have this lens and like it because it delivers great images and focuses fast enough on my K10d: all the photos in this gallery were taken with this lens:Erl Houston : photos : Field Day 2007 - powered by SmugMug
I also like it because it is light in weight, small in size, and covers a great focal range.
The only dislike is that it is not an f2.8 and therefore not very usuable in low light situations without a flash. However, for the money it is fantastic.

I think the build quality of this lens is very good. It has a nice feel to the zoom ring and focus rings. I also like that it is light and compact. I think it is a great value for the money.

The downside, it's not very fast. So you have to crank up the ISO in low light photography, or put on a faster lens.

No regrets in purchasing this lens for me.

Likewise- great image quality, but not an f/2.8. for ~200 this is a great lens.
