Better than my first one

  • Excerpt: I purchased this to replace original kit lens. My first one was not a version II. Autofocus quit working on original lens. Not sure what all the differences are (if any) but this one does seem to be built a little better (focus ring seems tighter). Nicer lens cap (pinch-type).
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Okay lens

  • Excerpt: This lens came with the camera I bought. I found it to be easy to work with when adjusting the basic settings such as auto/manual focus and turning the stabilizer on and off. I found that when shooting, a lot of pictures did not come out as expected due to the slow lens.
  • Cons: Slow auto-focus, Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality, focus easily obstructed

  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Super-sharp images
