Rather noisy micro motor and slow focusing.

At 200 mm and open aperture it is not sharp enough.

surprisingly lighter than one would expect.
It is big.
Focusing seems offhand turning is counter-clockwise, though I wonder if mine was for a left-hander . . .
I should mention that I brought this used for my Digital Nikon, it was a great price for what I was looking for. This 16yr old lens takes some amazing pictures, easily earned back it's purchase price.
