"The plastic barrel is light but fragile."1.5 starson by liamsisk
Pros: Nice sharp image.
Cons: Delicate construction
Summary: I purchased this lens and after three weeks light usage the Focus Mode Switch/Image Stabiliser Switch housing became detached from the lens body and was lost. The lens is at present being examined by Canon with a view to repairing it if possible. Disappointing for a new product. They should have given me a new one as a replacement.
