Highly underrated lens

Ashish, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Great for the price, and highly underrated! Its a perfect lens for those who can't afford "L" lenses. The focus is good (9/10 times gives perfect, sharp images). Only downside is its really plasticky (I guess thats why its cheap). Overall, I would say its the best entry-level zoom lens! Really happy with the product and highly recommend this!!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens as a gift for my brother. He had the kit 18-55, and his kids are starting to play soccer and other sports. So, I thought the extra zoom range would be helpful to get some good family pictures. All the aspects of the lens are comparable to the 18-55. The build and image quality are right on par with it. It's everything you would expect.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • Summary: You can use this from a few meters away to get macro type shots of insects and such. Not quite as good but it's an added perk I didn't expect.
  • Pros: Awesome lens for the money. If you're new to photography or don't have a huge budget this is a great zoom lens.
  • Cons: It's not an L but for this price range you can't go wrong.

Nice lens

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for just about anything. Focuses well, image stabilization is a great help to someone whose hands shake a bit. The only thing I noticed that aren't so great is that the manual focus ring is a little stiff. It is improving with use, however.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Focus Ring Is A Bit Stiff

Good price for a good lens

  • Excerpt: I am a professional photographer, but I bought this lens for my wife. She has a Canon SL1. It's easy for her to use and has a good range. I wish it was a little faster for low light situations. If you plan to shoot indoor sports like basketball or volleyball, you will probabley need a faster lens. For the price, however, it's a good long lens for amateur shooters.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Great value lens

Marc A, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this product refurbished (D grade), and so far it appears indistinguishable from a new product. It has a good zoom range, and has decent autofocus. I ended up purchasing this after considering the IS 70-300 mm lens. It seemed a better value, and I like being able to use manual focus when in autofocus mode.
