Summary: This was a very nice package for the price...I was looking to replace a broken (unrepairable) 28-250...my only complaint is I occasionally shoot w/a film camera and this lens doesn't seem to fit..oh well...it takes very nice pictures.
Excerpt: I am an artist, not a professional photographer, so having a lens that can do a lot of different things for a good price was all I needed. This seems to help me take great photos of my art and designs... from up close to far away.
Excerpt: I bought this lens as an alternative to my 35mm that I use to shoot concerts. I also wanted a lens with a zoom so I could start doing wildlife photography. And this lens can be used for both of those scenarios. It was very inexpensive and works EXCELLENT with my Nikon D3100.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Excerpt: I seriously thought I would have to pay around $[$]for a replacement lens until I found this brand and site! Such a great website and the lens works just as good if not better than Nikon! You will definitely have me as a repeat customer.
