Not worth the money.

Summary: I finally sold this lens because it just didn't do anything well enough to suit me. Adequate results as long as you don't look too closely but the attempt to make a "do-all" lens has resulted in doing all in a mediocre fashion.
Summary: Great lens for travel..no need to carry extra lenses.. And it's great for outdoor shooting. Limited aperture for dark rooms. But for the price, it's great. And it Cameta Camera is a superb business. They are knowledgable, and go out of their way to help.
Excerpt: Great lens for well lit compositions! Nice focus range with nice output. However, when it comes to low light, you'll definitely need a tripod to try compensate the noise with longer exposures.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Cons: Heavy, Need Tripod For Low Light, Not Linear Images, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
Excerpt: Compared with my nikkor 70-200mm/f2.8,it zooms in closer of course when shooting birds. And the quality is pretty good. But when it's used for landscape view with zooming out, the image quality is not good. Trees leaves look too blur. It's worse than my nikkor 10-24mm/f3.5-4.5
Excerpt: I had high hopes for this one. I'm not a fan of having to carry around 4-5 lenses all the time, but I may have to learn to do just that. This lens is much slower and makes more noise than my other lenses. It is heavier than I expected as well. I do like the lens lock and the range.
