I love using the lense, It is a good value for the money.

Summary: I bought this lens as I recently purchased the Cannon T3I DSLR. I like the lens as it is light weight, easy to use and I have no problems using it with the camera. I honestly don't have any dislikes, but I am fairly new at using my dslr camera. As for comparison to other lenses, I cannot compare as I don't really have any additional lenses. I use my camera primarily with my telescope and I do time lapse photography.
Summary: Excellent product. Great quaility, focus and response. Crisp shots and easy to use. Attaches quickly with little fuss. Love the accuracy of the pictures and images captured. Could not be happier.
Summary: I had purchased a Canon EOS D30 (No. NOT a 30D! They're different, dang it!) camera from Ebay so I could sell, ironically, much of the 35mm film gear I had amassed over the last 40+ years. I bought this 35-80mm Canon zoom from Ebay mostly because of the macro feature, which works beautifully BTW! When I took the lens out of the box, I was amazed at its weight. Or the lack thereof. I was used to my Minolta and Pentax lenses going "thud" on the table.
Summary: Just great item loved it so much- feels so light yet so effective and great.Its so light weight that when you attache it to your camera or camcorder via an adapter it feels very light weight no need for rails. Besides its short and the zoom is so pinpoint.
