  • Summary: Over all it was a great value. The packaging could have been larger to protect the lens better. It was bubble wraps. However the lens works great and thats all tha counts..

Good recreational lens

Joshua Powell, Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: Good for the price. At either extreme of zoom there is definite ghosting/shadowing and loss of focus, but this isn't the lens' fault, this type of artifacting is common among large zoom ranges. I can easily see this lens being used for amateur family trips. And if possiblly used with extension tubes or a homemade magnifying setup to allow for some interesting macro shots. But this would be used only in a recreational context and not as pro solution or even a pro am.

Canon 28-200mm lens

R. Kanno "rk4runner", Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens instead of the normal 55mm lens. I am glad that I did this because I could do wide angle as well as far distance. Its mated to a Canon 30D and for all these years, the camera and lens worked perfectly for me.

If you can get a nice one for less than 150.00, do it.

  • Summary: Great starter lens for amatuer film photography. I'm using this on a Canon EOS 5/A2 35mm slr. Auto focus is quick, albeit noisy relative to today's latest dslr lenses. Manual focus ring isn't very smooth, but it's more than manageable. From the many reviews I've read, experts and professionals say this lens is crap - but they're comparing it to professional-level equipment that probably costs much, much more.

  • Summary: If you're not willing to keep changing your lens quite often, this is a great beginner- to mid-level lens. Have had this lens for the last 3 years without a one single complaint.

Great walk around lens.

russ7r, Ebay

  • Summary: Lens is a great walk around lens. The general kit lens (18-55) is really not good for anything further than 10-15 feet. This is large, lets in a good amount of light, decent focus time and very clear. The only downfall I can give it is what is caused lens creep, this is because the glass is so heavy when you point it in the downward direction it will pull itself out to full zoom.

  • Summary: I have enjoyed the lens thus far. My only disappointment was it is not an Image Stabilizer type, like my other len. It would have been nice to know this information.
