Excerpt: I do think the quality of the lens is great. I'm not so fond of the 55mm low end range of the lens though. It is a fairly narrow lens.

Excerpt: I purchased this lens a few weeks ago and have used it at one big event. I was impressed with the handheld images I was able to get during an outdoor, late afternoon wedding. The autofocus is silent; it's also quick while on static subjects.
