Got one myself a week ago. Most of the shots today were at f1.8 so a little bit soft, but OK in general :)

PS. The lens has a "macro" mode, via hardware switch on its barrel. In macro mode, the closest focusing distance is 25 cm (vs. 50 cm in "normal" mode). Here are two examples ...

@Erich_H - Yes, I got it for 35 EUR brand new, so I will definitely keep it. This is the only one plastic-bayonet lens in my current gear so I will try to be careful with it.

As a matter of fact I have been a long time, low-end, Canon DSLR user before (Canon 350D), so the plastic was almost everywhere. And what is more important, through all the years I did not broke anything :)

This was one of the Canons with a plastic mount in the body? I had one of those, I think it was an EOS 300 (film) and it put me off Canon for good....
It's bad enough with a plastic bayonet, but a plastic lens mount?!!?

No, no. Luckily the lens mount was metal on the 350D. This is why I wrote "almost" :) But all the lenses I had at the time, were with plastic bayonets - the 18-55 mm kit lens, the 50 mm f1.8 version II and some more.

Most kit lenses have this disease. I have a Nikon D40 kit lens 18-55, a Sony 18-70, a Sony 18-55, and I had an Olympus 14-42 (gave that one away...), some Minolta 35-70, all with plastic bayonet... 😵
What they do to save a buck....
