Red lenses are not built well. Also, you will have to wait quite a while to actually receive this lens, since I know someone that has been waiting over a year to get one.
The 18-85 is delivering now in limited quantities, and is supposedly expected to be out of backorder sometime this summer. And it's one of Red's "Pro" line of lenses; if your judgement of the build quality of Red's lenses was based on the 18-50 or the non-"Pro" 300mm, it doesn't carry over.
