A setting - good.

28-200 - good.

3.5 to 5.3 - ok.

Looks relatively clean.

Is selling for <$25 shipped - good.

Bad pictures - hmmmm.

Reviews here are mixed.

I'd take a chance on it if you need that range in a manual focus lens.

I wouldn't get this. Sure, it's a bargain, but after all it's an old superzoom. Superzoom technology has evolved a lot since the manual days
