I've had two of these over the years. Optically they are very good. And I
liked that they were a "two touch" zoom and focus. But mechanically, they
are plastic and feel cheap. The lens shade attachment is a joke, but I
think that I remember that the front element does not turn on zoom or focus
which makes it easy to use a polarizer.
