  • Excerpt: I love the look of this lens- discreet and no fancy buttons all over the place. The picture quality is great, but you would have to shoot at a high shutter speed to avoid camera shake since there's no stabilizer. The only thing that bugs me is the auto focus which takes quite awhile to focus.

Pleasant.

  • Summary: Bought this product to shoot indoor basketball games. Lens does a satisfactory job. Be prepared to use a monopod as this model does not have image stabilization. Pros are that the price is cheap. Cons - this camera is not a Canon!

Great if you are used to manual focus

  • Summary: Great if you are used to manual focus. Let me explain. I have been shooting with all sorts of lenses for the past quarter century and it is really hard for me to "pass" a lens with flying colors.
