Excerpt: Been using Sigma's 18-250 Macro until this little gem came down in price. In terms of center image quality my DA lens wows across the whole range, but compared to my Sigma, seems a bit softer fully extended. I understand this trade off, and love the extra reach to pull subjects in closer. Thanks to the great B and H deal, I'm extremely satisfied with my new 18-270. Only wished it was available as a WC series.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: It is exactly what I was looking for, THE zoom! With it I am no more in the need to change lenses and can take only the camera with me in my excursions, very confortable ...and no risk to let the dust enter the camera. This is a perfect lens for traveling and everyday-useage. I love it, as it is versatile, ranging from wide to telephoto, which avoids me changing lenses all the time and getting my precious sensor dirty/dusty.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Wonderful zoom lens!! It has incedible zoom, and the focus ring is much better than others I've used (only matters for manual focusing). If you want to only carry one lens around I highly recommend this one for the gig! I use it for everything from landscapes to close up shots. Great glass for the price. You're very lucky if you get to learn photography on as versatile a lens as this one!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: All in one nice lens especially when want to travel light only with one lens. It is slightly soft on wide aperture and from start getting sharp from f/6.3 then f/8 to f/11 is very sharp, very nice built in quality and good IQ when comparing with same range 3rd party lenses. I used this lens quite a lot and observed that it getting better and better day by day which means that need time to understand the specification of this lens in order to get the full positive result.
