Excerpt: Autofocus stops working in digital zoom. Grrr. I would highly advise to use manual zoom with the video setting. It seems to me that you get a better distance footage that way. For anything within regular optical zoom... autofocus does the job.
Excerpt: I love taking pictures and would like to take it further however,I am unable to afford much in terms of lenses... This lens has been a great investment in having more opportunities with my camera to take good photos and I instantly saw the difference in the quality of lens. I recommend this lens highly if you are in the same boat as I am and would like to step up from the lens that came with my T3.
Excerpt: This lense is great for photojournalism and wild life photography. His zoom reach up to 300 mmm and that sabes you forma los of trouble when you see a great photo, but you are too far to reach it.
Excerpt: I use this product for my nature shots. Prior to buying this lens, I would use my 30-75mm lens. However, I couldn't see very far with it. Therefore, I would try to get closer to the animal (be it a bird, deer, etc.) and scare it away. After buying this lens, I never have to worry about that again. It has great zoom and stabilization so none of the images come out blurry.
