  • Excerpt: This is an overall great lens. I love it so much I am on my third one. This leads to the largest downside. It is not the most well constructed lens. My first lens seized up and could no longer zoom. I thought it was a fluke so bought another.
  • Pros: Adequate Capabilities, Clear Display, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens recently to walk around with on my trip to Thailand. So far, I have been very pleased with my purchase! The lens performs quite well in well-lit conditions, though under low light environments, it suffers a bit.

A very useful lens

Lavite, B&H Photo
14 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This is a fine lens for everyday views indoors and outdoors because it can focus within three feet and also capture panoramic and group pictures outdoors I still feel the need for a bigger lens with longer reach for birds and animals in the wild. My next buy.
