If it's sharpness you want, this is the perfect lens for you. With its aspericalelements, this lens produces extra crisp pictures with almost no distortion. The Phoenix AS/IF 28-210mm lens also features internal focusing so that the lens doesn't rotate on the front when focusing. This is helpful when using a polarizing filter and its unique lens hood.

This was a birthday gift for my son-in-law who is a semi-professional photographer. He has reported being very pleased with it and says he has taken wonderful photos with it. Sounds good to me!
Realize that this lens has a sliding zoom. I like it, but it is easy to change focal lengths unintentionally. The images are definitely not the sharpest you'll ever see, especially at long focal lengths. There is also a problem with ghosting. The images are fine for personal photos, but are not professional quality. I wouldn't expect any pros to be buying this lens anyway. It is a very good lens for shooting videos.
