  • Excerpt: Is a good lens overall. what impressed me the most is its weight for this zoom range. Auto focus is decent Picture quality is good Not a fast lens though.. need plenty of light for hand held shots Also lack of image stabilization will mandate the use of a monopod or a tripod etc

  • Excerpt: Great for wildlife. Tripod or monopod a must, as there is no image stabilization.

  • Excerpt: although this lens is a little old and is being replaced, you can't beat the quality for the money. It is not an IS lens but because it's so light you can hand hold it with pretty good results.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for distant wildlife photography. You can't beat the price for the reach. As I titled, you have to know how to use the lens and what the right conditions are to use it. The lens does get soft if you're shooting a small object far away. The moon... forget it.

Smart buy

Daniel Y., Newegg
28 July 2013
  • Summary: I stopped considering teleconverters after reading the fine print on compatibility issues with associated lenses and loss of functions ie autofocus
  • Pros: Quality device, meets expectations, sharpness drops off at max focal distances but was expected from reviews. Lower cost overall and without the compatibility restrictions OEM places on teleconverters for use with less powerful lenses. Used on alpha 65.
  • Cons: NONe, I am happy with my purchase

Good Lens

  • Summary: I have a 18-200 lens this perfect to take off from there 200-500, I would recommend this lens, the only thing is that it is heavy, that is why I rated it a 4.
