7 out of 10 points and recommendedrange, small size and average weight.zoom tight when not horizontal, not high speed lens
Seems like good value as a walk around lens. On one weekend in Adelaide and travel to and fro it was all i really needed. Impressive zoom range for the size and weight. Picture quality is better than with the canon 18-55 kit lens for my 350d camera.reviewed March 12th, 2006
Shot test so far but i am impressed with the ease of use. large range and reasonable cost.
