Lens Review Date: December 4, 2011 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 7 

Pros: Fixed f4; solid construction but not too heavy
Cons: Front rotates when focusing; bit hard to focus
Sharpness: 6    Aberrations: 8    Bokeh: 9    Handling: 7    Value: 8   

Nothing special here, but a serviceable lens. Nice to have the fixed f4.5, but it sharpens up nicely at f8. Push-pull zoom with fixed focus, so it might be useful as a video lens. I think the bokeh is somewhat unique and quite pleasing. The pseudo-macro (1:3.5 at best) results in quite nice pics such as the one attached.
