3 out of 5 eggsWorks well before it dies

Pros: When it worked, the quality was great, except that it kept trying to focus on something leaving other objects in out of focus.

Cons: It died after 5 months of weekly use. It seems like it has a high-value aperture so it needed to focus on one thing leaving others out of focus.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy it again.
