7 out of 10 points and recommendedFlexible, easy to use, great everyday lensVignetting, especially with filter
It is a pretty good lens, and I've read some other reviews that corroborate mine: pretty good everyday lens. I especially like how it renders colors. But vignetting gets pretty bad, especially when using a polarisation filter in sunny conditions. It's as if the edges are somehow shaded, the difference is that big.reviewed May 18th, 2010 (purchased for $180)
10 out of 10 points and recommendedBig range, sharpa little heavy, but that's logical...
Have had this lens for a little while now, but I was really impressed with its performance. Very sharp images, and with VR actually quite fast. Neutral colours, no real vignetting and as far as I can tell no CA either. Excellent lens, and surprisingly cheap.reviewed May 18th, 2010 (purchased for $400)
