Build quality

Very nice and solid.
Also have a nice feel to it.


Conclusion

Quite the nice lens.
Image quality are still quite sharp for a lens with this long zoom.
Renders very good but not the best contrast at some apertures.

It can also be used in macro where it can focus down to scale 1:1.4 on a fullframe.
Which is not bad at all and image quality here looks great.
But macro only work at 50mm.
