Pros: Colors rendition, contrast because of pure glass inside; good sharpness and zoom range, cheap.

Cons: It is not very luminous

Opinion: I use it mainly MF on a Fuji xf with adapter. It is a pleasure to work with such combination. The so called macro (1:3.4) is quite useful too. Because of pure glass inside it is able to render a very nice 3D effect, as many old lenses, in comparison with many modern plastic lenses that are inside of objectives. It is very good too for portraiture works.

Pros: Good sharpness, especially when stopped down little bit. Very low price

Cons: Lateral chromatic aberations might be significant issue

Opinion: Good choice for a budget use (I bought it for 58 USD). If you are fine with 28 mm as a widest focal length. There is a uncommon macro functionality, but only at 28 mm. Sharpness is good, but purple fringing is an issue. Autofocus is maybe faster than D lenses, but it is kicking when focus is achieved. I had the same excperience with a Pentax lenses some years ago.

Pros: Very robust to be an AF, extraordinarily fun on Aps-c with the wide-angle macro mode, which allows close-up thrusts well set with a remarkable perspective and immersive effect in the scene; maintains its brightness for a long time: f 3.5 constant from 28 to 35mm, f 3.8 from 35 to 50mm, f 4 from 50 to 70, and f 4.5 from 70 to 85; they pull it behind you for four bucks, af responsive and quite fast. FLUID MAF bezel also in manual, has a diaphragm ring and is written "Made In Japan" !!!

Cons: It stretches a little zooming in and rotates the front lens.

Opinion: In a word: funny ! I have the first version, the one with the thin and knurled plastic maf ring: even nice to see, it is a nice brick without annoying optical kit games. It does not vignette and does not produce flares, on D700 and D200 it is a pleasure and balances well with the 2 old women. Mount the unusual 62 filters. It covers a very useful range for trips, and the macro mode is very fun, as I said above. Sturdy plastics and zoom rubberized bezel with excellent grip, a little less than that of the maf, but you get used to it. It does not immediately become a dark cave like some modern varifocals when zooming in on the canvas: it retains brightness for a long time. It suffers from aberrations and physiological drops at TA, but recovers well if closed by at least one stop until f11. For what it costs, it is worth trying !!!

Pros: Everything that a handyman of those years can have, and he is cheap...

Cons: For the era in which it was designed and marketed, absolutely nothing!

Opinion: A historic all-rounder, not surprisingly produced for 13 years. Robust and mechanically very good. Fluid and precise rings. Af not particularly fast, but more than enough to bring home great shots. It returns excellent colors and resolution, not as sharp as modern lenses, it also allows digital cameras to get very delicate shots. I use it on digital as on mechanical fm and totally manual. Really satisfied.
