Summary: Haven't really had a chance to try it yet. This is my first DSLR so still trying to figure it out. Wanted an in between lens from the 75-300 mm lens that came with the bundle. Have Canon Rebel T5. Im on a budget and bought this used so time will tell. Wanted something as a leave on lens.
and was the catalyst for my photography love. It is a great price

Summary: This was my first lens, and was the catalyst for my photography love. It is a great price, and will suffice to any photographer's needs (in its focal range). It taught me some of the most important lessons I've ever learned in the photographic realm. First, don't fall into the marketing scheme.
Summary: Actually focuses faster and quieter than the newer version. Probably not quite as sharp, but hey it does what it's supposed to. Got it for my Mom's old Canon Rebel and she's never had a problem with it.
