I used to own the lens. It is a fine consumer lens. Plastic construction but doesn't feel cheap, very light. Optics-wise it is pretty decent too. The lens extends a bit when zooming in at the tele end.

One thing you will need to watch out is on some cameras, this lens (or my copy anyway) will sometimes have trouble locking the focus at infinity. I have heard a few cases already but it seems to be camera dependent. I have heard from a user who has a DS and a K100D. The lens has trouble focusing at inifinity on the DS but it has no trouble or whatsoever on the K100D.

Oh, your price seems to be a little high (assuming that's US dollars). You can get the lens for about $210 from B&H.

cheers,
Kenny
