Summary: Great lens. I've been using this lens more then my kit lens. Very sharp and with low light photography it stands better then most lenses out there. It definitely is a step up for a kit lens and it's a great walk around lens. Built strong and heavy. It doesn't feel like a cheap at all, it feel like a well built lens.
Nice glass - 2.8 constant aperture is a great tool

Summary: I have this mounted on my D200 and D5100, both with great results. As much as I love using my Nikon 35mm 1.8, sometimes you just need that extra versality and range. The 18 - 30mm range is very useful for food shots, closeups, and wide angle shots. I love this glass. The sharpness and color is quite good and similar to the nikon lens I have. It's not quite as vivid and clean, but the results are easy to work with and can be easily fixed post-processing.
Summary: Great lens, unless you can spend $1,400 on a canon or nikon. This is my second one only because I work as a photojournalist and wear out equipment every four or five years and the first one i had was used when i got it. Sure if I could afford a name brand I would but this is the best alternative.
