8 out of 10 points and recommendedPrice, Value for moneyDistortion in wide
Pretty good lens, for its price, its cheap, light, nice zoom range, about 28 - 105 on 35 mm equivalent.reviewed January 13th, 2007 (purchased for $300)
Its a bit soft on open apertures, and a bit soft on corners.
It vignettes on corners too.
Recommendable as a pretty cheap all around zoom lens.
7 out of 10 points and recommendedlow price, nice zoom range, macrosoft beyond 200 mm, feels a bit cheap, zoom ring feel
excellent lens for its price, can compete with very expensive tele lenses when shooting up to 200mm.reviewed January 13th, 2007 (purchased for $100)
small and light and can fit in a pouch.
soft at 300mm and harder to hold tight but in good lighting its excellent.
if u dont have the money for an expensive zoom, there is no better alternative among the cheapst.
