Summary: This is a versatile lens to take everywhere. For the price, it does amazing photos. Photos do come out too dark in indoor low light areas and I find there is a bit heavier red tint than I like but again.... for the price it is a great lens.
Summary: Good product, Fast shipping, Well packed! This lens is good. The IS feature help to remove the blurries! yet at maximum zoom without a tripod you will still get them! but thats on the user not the lens!

Summary: The lens is clear and sharp. When changing aperture you can hear the lens working. It's not extremely loud, but it is noticeable. Haven't had a chance to really get into using the lens, but I keep getting emails to review the item...so here you go.
Summary: I had bought this same lens (by itself, not with the kit) from a local retail store for over $300, but soon found this kit on Amazon. Being almost half as much as the one I had already bought, I decided to take a chance and order this one (since it was such a bargain I was also able to order the tripod I wanted). I received the package by the end of the week and immediately compared it to the lens I still had from the retail store.
