It's not ideal

James M., Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this lens for my 600d and returned it after a day. It wasn't horrible but the lack of sharpness and chromatic aberration was too much for me. The barrel distortion wide open was also pretty bad.

You get what you pay for

  • Excerpt: I got this lens to use for sporting events that I can't get as close to as I would like to be. It doesn't focus very well when you fully extend the lens. For the money... I can't expect perfection I guess : )
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Functional

GOOD STARTER FOR NEWBEE

Two Jinn, B&H Photo
28 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Cheap starter telephoto for novice. Not a great lens by any means, but good telephoto to learn the "how to" of longer lenses. Eventually move up to a 1-2 grand lens when you have more experience and money.
  • Pros: Durable

Big Names are Not Always Better

  • Excerpt: This lens was to be used for birding. With maximum extension photos were blurry. Even with a tripod and remote shutter firing all photos at taken at max distance were very blurry. I tried manual settings and everything in between. NO GOOD!
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

Not What I Expected

  • Summary: I was looking for a lens that would allow me to zoom in but this was not the one. Sadly disappointed with the quality of this lens, but you get what you pay for it seems. Pictures were not as sharp as I had hoped for.
