I have been using this lens for 27 years, it was the kit lens with my FX-7, my first SLR. Optically it is very nice, never had any reason to complain about it. It is well made and tolerates unspeakable abuse. The zoom range obviously is modest, it really is just a normal lens that saves you the trouble of taking a few steps forward or back. And considering this, it is slow. But I liked the image quality better than any of the 28-80 type zooms that I've tried.
