Bought this to do low light indoor shooting, parties, weddings etc. But im finding that im leaving it on my camera all the time, great sharp pics at f4 as others have said, but even at 1.8 you really have to look to see any probs, worlk very fast for me in most light conditions.reviewed December 10th, 2006 (purchased for $165)

I bought this lens as a starter all purpose zoom, i must say so far its not a bad lens, very light so its great to travel with, sometimes images can be not as sharp as i would like, better sharpness through the middle fstops.reviewed December 10th, 2006 (purchased for $180)
Big con is the macro switch, i have to take the lens of the camera to swith it back from macro to normal as it wont with it on the camera body.
