    "LOve it...Nice kit...The combined camera and the two lens kit is an excellent bundle for those who want to get into professional photography.The camera and lenses are built of high quality - nice and sturdy....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)."
