Glad I did....love it...It is lighter, faster, and better optics....The lens is fast enough for many low light situations, the image quality is excellent edge to edge, at least with a sensor crop camera.
Canon EF 24–70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens: Built to handle the demands of professional use, this lens is durable as well as dust- and water-resistant. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear surfaces keep smudges and fingerprints to a minimum.
I love it...As a bonus....Will eventually trade up for a faster lens of the same range....Unlike other larger zoom lens where you loose some stability while taking pictures if you have zoom extended to maximum and quality of the pictures blur, this lens took excellent pictures, even in dimmer lighting.
With Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, this Sony NEX SEL55210 lens makes it easy to take clear, steady photos and videos with your Sony NEX digital camera. The 3.8x zoom lets you hone in on distant subjects from far away.
Best lens...Good lens...great lens, great pictures, faster, clear, and powerfull...Closer to 10 mm gives the characteristic distortion wide angle lens are known to have and then 18 mm is the same as any basic 18-55 mm lens which isn't distorted.
With an STM (stepping motor) and focus mechanism, this Canon EF-S 9519B002 zoom lens allows you to record ultrasharp videos or capture crisp photos using your compatible Canon camera. The UD lens element helps you take highly realistic images.
Nice Lens...Love it....This lens is crystal clear and faster focus than the off brand....The lens has a nice feel to it, it's not too heavy, the zoom ring is slightly firm but smooth, and the Vibration Reduction works well.
Cover every shot with this all-in-one Nikon 18-140mm camera lens that lets you zoom from wide-angle to telephoto without missing a beat. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass creates amazing contrast, and the zoom enables crisp images as close as 1.48 feet away. This Nikon 18-140mm camera lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for super quiet clicks.
I love it!...Great buy...With VR, I found the lens to be eight times faster....I just purchased this lens to go with my D810 as my main set up for weddings and it hasn't let me down yet!

Amazing Lens !...Amazing lens!!!!...Focus was faster, cleaner, sharper....After usining it few hours I got use to it so honestly I don't think it matters,now please stand up and salute the king of lenses(for now).
Complete your professional camera setup with this telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount cameras. The Silent Wave Motor powers ultra-fast, near-silent internal focusing with no breathing effect across the entire zoom range, and the Vibration Reduction technology helps to produce crisp images.
Good zoom....Good buy...upon purchasing this lens, I forgot to make sure it had image stabilization (which upon further research is a much much more expensive option) so ended up using my 55-250mm kit lens more often....As for the lighting it does require more light obviously but with the right settings not a lot of image graining occurs and you can still get the picture, use of a tripod is recommended but a steady hand could work....This lens came with our Black Friday Deal and has good quality.
Canon EF 75–300mm f/4–5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens: An ideal lens for photography enthusiasts who want to take their creativity to the next level, this telephoto zoom lens provides a long focal reach for taking close-ups shots from a distance. Take action shots while sitting on the sidelines at games and events, photograph wildlife without getting too close and capture incredible details on your next vacation.
Nice lens...Good Lens...This one is fully compatible with my camera, and the image stabilization and auto focus work really well (a good thing, since the lens is a bit heavy for me for hand-held photography)...Now my pics are coming out super clear and I'm able to get those priceless moments that you can't get when you're having to chase something around
Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.
Good lens....The Best...I was searching for a replacement to my Nikon camera/lens combo- I love the clarity of this lens- however, I am slightly disappointed in the range- My Nikon 70-300 was able to take much better pictures of the players on the baseball field- I cannot get on the field and the reach of the 70-200 lens is just not enough....The f/4L IS is a great lens, but I found myself buying the f/2.8L IS II less than 2 years later for the following reasons: (1) Knowing the f/2.8 was ever so slightly better than the f/4L IS with regard to optics.
Canon EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens This telephoto zoom lens is an essential tool for professional photographers and skilled amateurs. The variable focal length makes it useful for photographing a broad range of subjects, and the 2.8 maximum aperture functions well in low-light situations. Snap candid portraits, stop the action at sporting events or compose wedding photos with exceptional blurred backgrounds.
Great Range...Love it....Of coarse you can go out and spend another $1000 on better lenses, but for those of us who are not making an income with this hobby, this is a terrific lens....For the same $ (or most likely less), you can buy the Nikon 35mm or 50mm which give excellent image quality, are cheap, and very lightweight and the Nikon 55-200 which is also light, cheap, and has good image quality.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–200mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR II Standard Zoom Lens: This powerful and versatile Nikon standard zoom lens is a great one-lens solution for DX-format DSLRs. Its wide angle to telephoto focal range gives photographers a flexible tool to get the shot without having to switch lenses.
LOve it...Thank you....Considering it is several stops down from my zoom it really opens up as a nice portrait lens on my cropped sensor camera....The 50mm lense is perfect for portait photography (gives that nice blur behind the subject) and the 10-18mm lense is wonderful for video blogging or landscape photography....The bundle on Black Friday was a steal!

Very sharp....I love it....if you're looking to upgrade from the hefty and annoying flipping of lenses from the 18-55 and 55-200 mm then this is the lens for you....It's expensive considering you could buy a couple of decent prime lenses for the same amount, but I wanted to by a DX lens with VR for my D7000, and something light and with a decent range.

Very stable....Amazing lens!...I bought this after looking few others thinking this will suit my Need, I am using this Lens with EOS 70D,This is perfectly good for Ultra Wide photos especially like bringing whole bunch of people from shorter distance under one shot, when it comes to Indoor we need to be careful in the angle we use if the light is not good....Works amazingly well with wonderful quality and you'll never think of your kit lens again for architecture, landscapes, sunsets, etc!
