 +
 +===== Facts =====
 +
 +  * very usable telephoto zoom lens for outdoor use when there is plenty of light
 +  * in my use from 6/2014 to current date
 +  * estimated retail price 340 EUR
 +
 +===== Pros =====
 +
 +  * reasonably priced
 +  * really sharp when stopped down to f/8.0
 +  * focusing is quite fast, faster than with typical budget zooms but slower than with my speediest primes
 +  * not too heavy - I can shoot with this for hours without feeling any fatigue
 +  * nice image stabilization
 +
 +===== Cons =====
 +
 +  * heavy vignetting on a full frame body to the extend that the evaluative exposure mode overexposures the center
 +  * must be stopped down to increase sharpness and to fight the vignetting making this lens outdoors only
