Excerpt: I am a super novice photographer/videographer and was tasked to shoot some blog videos for my company. I needed a versatile lens with a decent zoom and the geniuses at BH pointed me in the direction of this one. It's perfect!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Novice Approved, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Landscapes, townscapes, interior of buildings. It is fast-focusing, relatively small and light. The pictures are very good with little CA and excellent bokeh. For the price this is a a great addition. The lens is not a fast one, so if you need it for low light the Tamron maybe better.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
