5 out of 10 points and recommendedGood value for money, reasonably sharp when stopped down,light weightCA's, soft wide open
Got this lens as part of 350D (rebel XT).reviewed December 5th, 2006 (purchased for $100)
It is reasonably sharp for the money that I spent. However, I need to stop it down to at least f10 in order to get sharpness.
CA is a big problem. It can be corrected in editor, still it is a big problem for me.
Distortions are pretty high but I can easily correct in editor.
It is light weight and small, I can easliy take it during my family trip without any major complaints from my wife!
