Summary: Have not had the chance to use as much as I would like, as on a trip this was to serve as a back up lens to an 18-200. However, on test shots, was a nice basic lens. While not a high priced professional quality lens, will make a good hobby lens.
Great for me as first SLR Camera; a few too many gee gaws with it

Summary: My first SLR camera -- took it on an 18-day Amtrak Adventure and got familiar with camera by taking over 2000 pix en route (about 75 will end up in the slide show). Everything pretty much OK - though I could do without a number of the add-ons in the package -- they felt like shiny objects to attract...
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.
