    "Love it...Worth it...Works well, nice and compact....It might be a little lacking for pros or very experienced amateur photographers, but if you're still a relatively casual photographer like myself, this is a huge step up from the kit lens, and combined with the 50mm 1.8 and a decent zoom lens, it's a great option to get a nice range of focal lengths covered."

    "Love it...Have fun...Exlelent lens compact....For me this lens is useful for candid and street photography, it makes a camera like the 5D very un-obtrusive and non threatening, my professional cameras look like slightly oversized consumer superzooms with this lens on them and people go back to acting naturally much more quickly than when a giant white lens is pointed at them."
