After using the lens, I'm not very impressed. I haven't done any critical testing, but so far sharpness is mediocre. It doesn't have the bite of some of my other zooms, such as the 18-70 or 75-150E. And focus is hard to tweak due to the short focus throw. From 2 meters to infinity it's less than 1/8 turn. However, I do like the compact size and macro mode.
