 +===== Facts =====
 +  * rather typical zoom lens for hobbyists
 +  * estimated retail price 415 EUR
 +  * in my use from 4/2006 to 11/2008
 +  * got replaced by primes to get sharper photos on large apertures
 +===== Pros =====
 +  * has a focal length range (28 mm - 75 mm) that fits nice with 1.6x crop body for [[https://​catza.net/​|cat show photography]]
 +  * offers constant maximum aperture over the focal length range which is a must for using manual exposure mode
 +  * very lightweight
 +  * focuses rather close ("​Macro"​ stands for that)
 +  * has a good reputation to be the best lens in its class
 +===== Cons =====
 +  * like most zooms soft wide open compared to primes (starts to work better at f/5.6)
 +  * not as usable in [[https://​catza.net/​|cat show photography]] as I thought
 +  * all plastic except the metallic EF mount
 +  * the focusing motor is a little slow
 +  * although carries "​Macro"​ label isn't a real macro lens
