NOT BAD...love it...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.
