    Very good build quality, but poor in focus

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Build quality is top notch. However, I cannot say the same in terms of focus capability. I was unable to get any sharp image from it; it was already on the soft side. I wanted to love the lens because of the build quality, but a lens cannot produce a sharp photo is not a lens that I want to keep, hence I returned it.
