It's ordinary zoom IMO...It would be good to see RAW files to make any conclusion.

Center at 16mm and F3.5 in one of the shots (http://www.yaotomi.co.jp/blog/walk/%E6%9C%9D%E8%AD%B7%E5%AD%AB%E5%AD%90%E5%A...14yaotomi_.jpg) looks surprisingly sharp.

A beautiful beer can, I'd say I like the look of it.

The photos look promising:

I hope the hood is adequate.
That big front element is going to need some shade.

I don't see "ugly", I see "purposeful". Looks easy to grip when there's snow and rain.
