  • Excerpt: good optics, sturdy built, image stabilization; but the focus ring moves when on AF also MF does not override the AF and you need to actually switch.

Good, but not great, for the money

  • Excerpt: I own the Canon 15-85 3.5-5.6 zoom, and purchased this as a faster alternative due to this having a constant 2.8 aperture. However, I found it a big soft wide open and needed to stop down to f4 to equal the quality (sharpness, contrast, and saturation) of the Canon wide open.

Squeaking noise - getting a replacement

Nochaser, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Seems well built and pics look good, but mine right out of the box made squeaking noise on AF. I'm returning the lense and debating whether I should give it another try with a replacement or look for something else.

Not as good as anticipated

taspz, B&H Photo
14 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Nice lens, easy to use and sharp, but not much more than the Sigma 18-250 mm f/3.5-6.3 I already own and use on a Canon 60D. I bought if for the larger aperture anticipating better IQ but found that a Fujifilm X30 28-112 mm with an f/2-2.8 lens that I bought later for travel use handled the larger...

Good Lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is excellent for the price. There is some noise rattle, which I found out was normal. It's fast and the image stabilization works well.
