3 out of 10 points and not recommendedauto focusnot Smooth Zoom , soft
I am surprised Canon would even release this product.reviewed August 22nd, 2012 (purchased for $165)
I have been using SRL cameras since 70s NEVER seen or own a lens so rough. The auto focus works great but the zoom utterly sucks. I would never buy this lens.
Perhaps one starting out in photography that really does not plan to use it beyond the family pinic? otherwise wasted money.
rather surprised at canon.
PS all my other cameras were Minolta, Nikon and Sony so this does not create good faith in Canon.
