  • 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

  • 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.
