8 out of 10 points and recommendedGreat range, good build quality,VR, It rarely leaves my camera.Zoom won't stay put when tilted.
What can I say that others have not. This is just a great carry around lens. I use it almost all the time. I wish it was better in low light situations, but that is just being picky. For the price, there is not much to match it, in my opinion.reviewed December 19th, 2006 (purchased for $750)
