    I've been umming and ahing about getting this lens for ages but with the UK Pany £50 cashback coming to a close and also I had some gift vouchers that I could redeem decided to bite the bullet.
    It's a nice compact lens with good build quality. I find the power zoom fine, you can use the zoom lever on the lens or just rotate the zoom ring when done with the zoom ring it's just like a normal zoom but has a very smooth feel.
    I've not had a chance to test it much but took a few shots today, the IQ seems fine so far so here's hoping I'm happy with it.

    Here's a couple of pics, nothing too exciting.

    Looks pretty good to me - nice color, great detail and covers a good range. Have fun with it. :biggrin:
