Great everyday lens. Was well worth the money and still happy with it after five years...
8 October 2014
Summary: Looking back after five, nearly six years, I can say that buying this lens was a great decision. At the time I felt it was a lot of money and although I had done a lot of research, I was a bit apprehensive. Lens has been used on a Nikon D40x, where it is permanent fixture.
Summary: Great lens! I am very happy about the image quality and speed of focus. The only thing I dont like is that this is a 3:1 macro lens and not a true 1:1 macro. I am not disappointed in the lens but the purchase of this lens helped me to understand all macro lenses are not the same.
Summary: When i first purchased this lens, i was kind of shocked it sold for under $200. for a fast 2.8 at 18mm aperture and zoom, its great for indoor shots. when you zoom out to 50mm, it does make the aperture much tighter. I do wish it was 2.8 all the way through. The images are pretty sharp.
Summary: This is good for now on a budget. It's light weight, works pretty well. Looks great with the metal mount. The focus is fast, I try to use it in the lower mm because I feel it does not deliver crisp images to my liking. My prime lens 50mm, etc.
Summary: I agree with some people that this isn't the sharpest lens out there. However, it is a great beginning lens. I have been shooting here, there, and everywhere. I've tried so many unique things with this lens, pushing it to its limit. So far... I'm satisfied.
Summary: I bought this lens to replace my kit lens, which I had given away to my son. I'm shooting a Nikon D300S (so DX rules apply). Anyways... I liked the Idea of f 2.8 even if it was only at the wide end. It still gives me a little more latitude. I also like the internal focus (no zoom extension).
Summary: I bought these lens for Canon because kit lens that came with T1i is too bad. What i definitely can say is that replacement worth the price. The quality of images are way better and if you looking for upgrade, then this is probably the best choice.
Summary: Quick shipment and arrived a day ahead. This is a great lenses to add to any new photographers bag. I have not had any issues. I like this lens a whole lot more than my Nikon lens. This lens lets in a lot of light at 67mm.
