    "Love it...4 stars...I want a lens that closes in on its subject slowly and smoothly and this lens does it a little faster than I'd like....The good things about this lens are that it's well built, it has an electronic zoom, so that you can zoom much more smoothly during a video clip, it has a nice zoom range up to 105 mm that gives quite a bit more zoom than a standard zoom."

    "love it...NOT BAD...This is a good zoom for beggining.Good image quality in outdoors.Best if used with a tripod or monopod.There is no image stablizer so the futher you zoom the steadier the camera has to be.On the plus side with it being an EF lens you can buy an inexpensive teleconverter and double your zoom.All in all a good lens for being part of a package....I would definately recomend this lens if you need a decent telephoto lens, I would also recomend a tripod since it can be a bit tricky to get a clear shot since the lens lacks IS."
