Surprise Find5 Posted by: from: on While on a road trip, I realized my camera battery died and I did not pack an extra. We dspotted a Best Buy store and I walked inside in search of a camera battery and walked out with my new lens. This zoom lens is now my favorite lens, it's lightweight and captures the most detailed images!

Great lens for an in between lens.5 Posted by: from: on This lens is just what i was looking for. It has more range that the one that comes with the camera but not so much range that I can't take a quick close up shot as well. Enjoying this lens.

Fantastic walk around lens-great deal!5 Posted by: from: on My local Best Buy won my business. I didn't want to wait for an Internet retailer to ship so I stopped by a local store. Although they did not have the lens either, the service and price match made the wait worthwhile. The lens is fabulous and is now our primary choice when taking pics around town and Best Buy will be our first stop for gear.

Great lens for beginner5 Posted by: from: San Francisco, CA on I use a canon t3i. i should have bought this lens with the t3i body instead of getting the 18-55mm kit lens. I understand that using this lens with t3i won't be able to use the auto-focus function in video mode. But i don't shoot video that often so this won't bother me at all. This lens is heavier than the 18-55mm lens this won't bother neither. I am a beginner but this lens makes my pictures look like that they are taken by a professional photographer! It is very easy to use even for a beginner. The feature that I like most in this lens is the auto-focus feature in photo mode. It is quiet and fast!
