Love it...Good deal....Great new lens for a beginner like me... Great new lens for a beginner like me...it allows me the extra range from the kit lens that came with my Nikon D3200....I can get close ups of people with interesting backgrounds - although admittedly from a farther distance than I am used to - as well as interesting architectural details not possible from my 18-55mm lens....Need to be careful while changing from auto to manual focus otherwise the lens get stuck inbetween forcing you to turn off the camera and turn it on to reset the auto focus motor.

Best lens....Supurb lens...I have only had this lens for a few hours and have only shot images inside (It's below zero in MN!) So far I am simply amazed how smooth and fast this lens focuses....It is my new goto lens.The photos from this lens are the best I have ever shot.If you are looking for a great lens get this one.My only regret is I had to buy this from amazon because best buy has not had it in stock for months....Never shoot below 1 - 125 shutter speed anyway so not quite sure how IS performs compared to non-is but it is definitely sharper than the non-is version.

Good deal...Nice Lens...I am just beginning learning how to use my new Canon DSLR, but I do like having this lens when I need to shoot across wide expanses (over bodies of water or across a field)....Lens does great with close ups; not as good with objects in motion, but may be because I have not learned everything about it yet....The image quality is good but is certainly not going to rival a high-end lens like the Canon 70-200 L. I am please with this lens.

Very good...Good lens....I have a more expensive lens but because of size, weight and the capability of this lens - I find myself grabbing this one because it's easier to carry around and does a great job for mid-distances such as a beach trip, hiking trail, graduation party......I believe I saved nearly $150 on the lens and much cheaper than buying the one lens that replaces the freebee that comes with the camera and this one being reviewed....Good lense, I bought this for my Sony alpha a6000 camera and it works great... Recently put it to use on a family trip to San Francisco and was able to take great quality pictures

Love this!...Good buy!...So I definitely do not recommend it for landscape shooting inclement weather, but for nice weather (like Los Angeles all year round) or indoor photography, this is a great lens to consider....On top of all of that, this lens also includes the STM focus system which allows you to record video and have the lens focus almost completely silent....I found it to be fun to use, and that is probably the most important thing for me since I have more fun taking pictures than I do working with or even viewing them.

Love it....I love it....The zoom range filled a gap in my lenses and permitted me to capture the images from a distance that I might not have otherwise been able to get....After looking at several lenses in the Honolulu store and speaking with one of the clerks as well as testing it out in the store, decided that this lens was perfect for the kind of work that I do....It has the Vibration reduction, which is great when taking hand held shots, but you definitely need to turn it off when you are taking photos on a Tripod.
