18 November 2014
Summary: Very good lens, colorful and very deep looking HD video and pictures. Works well in any lighting. Good zooming range and focus. Love this lens! Best lens you will find for this price! Best investment this year so far!!
Summary: I just received the item and taking my first test shots with this lens. Even before fine tuning (calibration), I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of the results. The image at f/2.8 seems a little soft to my taste, but nothing alarming, all lenses perform not at their best when fully opened. Stopped down at 5.6 things start to get much much better, and at f/8 this lens really begins to shine.
Summary: I got this lens from Amazon. The delivery was prompt and the item arrived in good condition in a protected package. I am using this lens with my Canon T3i. It has been about of week since I got this lens. Overall color reproduction and the picture quality is very good through out the 18 - 200 mm range. I am very satisfied with the performance of this lens. However, you should note that the motor of this lens is a little noisy and at times you may be able to hear this.
