The price and what it does ... this lens would have to be the better of the consumer grade lenses on the market ... and makes a hell of a travel lens if that's all you are physically able to take. If I come across one at a decent price I might be tempted in getting one.

For now though I have too many lenses ... my wife keeps wondering why i keep getting Screwmount lenses now ("Don't you have enough already?" .... ummm nope.)

The 18-250mm's quality is surpassing my expectations when i keep seeing really good images from it all of the time.
