    "Very easy to use...my wife loved it...Since you don't have Image Stabilization and the auto focus is slow and hard to work properly (Trying to focus on a object with major magnification requires a tripod or a VERY steady hand), Manual focus is almost a must....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"

    "What a great buy...I love them both...The focus ring is super smooth when using in manual....If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one)"

    "I love this lens...My wife loves it...I recommend using back focusing (Google it if you don't know what it is), manual shutter and aperture with auto-ISO....If you compared this to the 5 or 600 nikon prime which is almost the cost of a car this lens isn't as sharp, but it's 1399 not 13000.00... Buy it you will be happy with it The only reason it got 4 starts is from the weight and the inability to use the 5.6 on a crop body and I have had 2 copies and it'sn't a defective lens...do your research on this lens"
