Summary: I wanted a zoom lens to take pictures of my daughters softball games. This lens is very clear, fast focus, and delivers crisp pictures. I was Leary of buying a refurbished lens, but it works like a dream and has a one year warranty. You can't beat it! I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Excerpt: This lens is good for midrange pictures from 20' on it gives a good sharp clear picture, the Auto focus setting works perfect as well as the manual setting, in short, its a very good high quality lens.
Excerpt: I love this lens. It has auto and manual focus. The manual focus is really good. I took this camera to a super cross race and got some excellent race pics. I have also used it for portraits of my kids, also excellent. I would say as far as quality, i would buy this again if I had to.
