  • Summary: The lens is great, but most of the other items are very cheap. The case is not something I would ever use. Also, the packaging was terrible! I was surprised that nothing was broken!

ok but not great

  • Excerpt: The VC is not functioning properly. If it is on, at slow shutter speed it blurs the picture. I had to turn it off if the shutter speed was faster 1/13. I had 3 copies of the lens, 2 of them were really soft. The one that was actually "sharp" had the AF that dies after few weeks of light use..
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Long range
  • Cons: No Increase In Performance, Poor AF, Poor Clarity, Poor VC

  • Summary: decent lense not really useful for pro's.
  • Pros: Wide Range to zoom,makes my 70-300mm almost obsolete. Good Quality lense
  • Cons: The lense expands when held downwards,at least mine does. Sometimes it has a gard time to focus especially in low light.

good multi-purpose but take a tripod

HelenaJ, WEX

  • Summary: Took this on holiday to India and was pleased with its range and ease of use. It is light enough to take anywhere and I didnt use any other lens. The down side for me was that on maximum magnification I needed a tripod, which is to be expected, but still a problem when travelling light.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Simple Controls, Versatile
