I bought this lens several months ago and use it a lot. Its fairly sturdy and well built, super compact for it's focal range, and surprisingly fast. However, stabilization is almost necessary for a lens of this length if you are shooting with any lack of light. Its tough to track animals with and not get a little blur even with fast shutter. The biggest issues I have are with chromatic aberration and sharpness however. The lens is not very sharp in the details which is a bummer if you want to crop AT ALL and use the photos for anything other than social media. ALWAYS shoot in raw because this lens produces a ton of aberration, most apparent in cloudy conditions for some reason (per my observation). Over all a great deal for the price, but maybe not a great option for everyone. I will look to upgrade soon.
Its smaller than expected but holds my camera (not a Panasonic) and replacement batteries and memory card. Which is why I bought it. So Im happy. Only suggestion is make sure you know the size of your camera and accessories will take up before you order. Great buy and great price..
