Exceptional image quality ; Superb build quality, including dust- and water-sealing ; Highly effective image stabilization ; Excellent autofocus and manual override

Relatively harsh rendition of out-of-focus areas of the image ; Somewhat susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame ; Inconvenient design of tripod mount ring (can't be detached without taking lens off camera)

I should have brought one months ago
