  • Summary: I love having this zoom lens. I am able to stay back and take pictures from further away if clients aren't very comfortable with having pictures taken, or if they're having trouble acting natural.

  • Summary: A decent lens for the price. Not good in low light but I bought it for my son's soccer games in bright sunlight. A bit slow on the focus but suits my meager needs until I can afford an high end lens.
