Excerpt: I bought this lens before a wedding in order to catch the expressions of the guests from afar. The controls are easy and the auto-focus rapid. Even in low light, the pictures were crisp.
The price/performance is superb.
Excerpt: I use this lens for landscape, wildlife and trains in motion. I use a tripod at all times with this lens. I do not miss a vibration reduction as you can't use that feature with a tripod. The money I saved went to a road trip. It takes a nice sharp picture and easy to read settings.
Excerpt: This is a great lens which may be picked up on a budget. Good telephoto and starter lens for those interested in macro photography. After using this lens for a week, I was very pleased with the sharpness and colors produced.
Excerpt: I didn't know what kind of photos I was going to get with the lens at this price but it was the best investment ever!!! When I take photos and show them to other people they don't believe the price I paid for the Lens. Works well and gets the job done with great quality photos!!
