Excerpt: I use this to photograph outdoor sports in bright light, and for outdoor weddings and events. It allows me to get close to my subject but still catch them acting naturally, because the camera isn't in their face. Its great!
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.
Summary: Great lens for the price. I needed a zoom lens this magnification and didn't want to spend a ton of money. This is the way to go if you are in the same boat. Great lens!! I bought a micro four thirds adapter to hook her up to my Olympus E-PL1 and the work great together. Of coarse you can only manually focus but that is fine with me since that's the only method I use anyways.
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.
Summary: For a $100 lens, I don't think I could ask for more. I use this for photographing some hawks that live behind my house as well as my friend surfing. The pictures turn out very well if you use a tripod and the zoom is incredible. Some other friends who are also beginning photography have loved using it as well when they tried mine out. It's a little awkward at first to get used to the weight/ length, but once you do, it's no big deal.
Excerpt: I use this with my older eos rebel xti. It works well as a zoom lens, for wildlife or other subjects that are far away. I don;t use it everyday per say but it is nice for experimentation and exploring distant subjects.
Excerpt: Used it on a recent trip and was able to capture pictures of my kids swim with dolphins from a distance, as the organizers would not allow me to go closer to take pictures. Was able to recover 50% of the cost of the lens as the professional photo graphers were charging around $ for picture packages.The Lens makes the camera heavy and I wish it would be a little lighter to carry. Worth every penny!
Excerpt: I am pleased with both the price and the photo wuality from this lens. I am an amatuer photographer, so it's important that what I buy is easy to use. As a side mote: I love B&H Photo Video -- website is easy to use and purchases come safely and on time!
