Excerpt: I actually already owned this lens in silver but my wife seems to have taken it over. (she calls it her "go to lens", her words). This is not a fast lens so don't have expectations of great indoor low light sports pictures : -) however it is light, well built and takes GREAT pictures. Good color and very sharp for a lens of this price.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've only had a brief trial with this lens but I am satisfied with the images that I've taken thus far. I am extremely pleased with the support from B&H in helping me select the lens I needed to match my photography goals.
