Pros:

- Decent sharpness even wide open;
- Good zoom length;
- Good value for money;
- Good price;
- Very light for a telephoto lens;
- Decent AF speed;
- Very good bokeh;
- Short minimum focusing distance;

Cons:
- AF hunts a bit;
- Front element rotates;
- Small and not constant widest aperture;
- Build quality could be a bit better;
