Build quality

Very good and solid.
Also a fairly good feel to it.


Conclusion

Great lens!

Image quality are very good but a bit soft wide open.
The macro function at 70mm are a nice plus.

The only down side I see to this is that it's quite big and heavy.
But zoom lenses like these are usually this size and weight.
