Summary: The auto focus is very slow and barely work in cold weather. Even when it does work, it is not very accurate and I get a lot of blurry photos. I can manually focus it faster and more accurately than it can auto focus, and I am not particularly fast or accurate. No image stabilization means a lot of hand held shots are blurry as well, even if the focus is spot on. I guess you get what you pay for, and it is 1/3 the price of a similar canon lens.
Summary: An amazing lens, this packs every focal length you could need into one solid lens. I've used it for photojournalism and have produced some outstanding images. Sharpness is really good, AF speed is solid, and the lens is very compact when walking around. Having 450mm equivalent focal length is great for sports and wildlife. I highly recommend yo try this lens.
Excerpt: I use this product to film weddings but only when I'm in a pinch. It's slow and not very good for low light situations. It is useful when you can't get close enough to the subject (large Catholic Church etc.
