    "Love it...Worth it...I love close-up shots, but the 50mm allows me to back up and not invade someone's personal space (over the 35mm)! And, having such a wide aperture range, this lens is giving me both sharp group shots and clear portraits with a very pleasing bokeh....This is a great Lens,i own some of the professional Lenses from Nikon and this is a great addition to my arsenal very compact and light,its very sharp and fast enough for casual shooting and portraits excellent to take to vacations ,get it now."

    "love it...Loved it...It has a 4 group optical zoom system and includes a large-diameter element, an aspherical lens element, a UD lens element and enhanced lens coatings for high-contrast, high-resolution images with minimal glare and aberration....The reach of this lens is nearly as wide as it gets without buying an expensive fisheye lens, plus it's a stabilized lens which is great for photo and video alike, and here's the kicker: it swallows everything you see in your natural field of view including your peripheral vision, capturing things that make what you see so wonderful but that you don't look at directly."

    "Love it...Nice but...It might be a little lacking for pros or very experienced amateur photographers, but if you're still a relatively casual photographer like myself, this is a huge step up from the kit lens, and combined with the 50mm 1.8 and a decent zoom lens, it's a great option to get a nice range of focal lengths covered....I'm giving it 4/5 stars because although I'm pleased with my purchase, and use it as my primary lens, I wouldn't say that it was life changing, or completely outshines the standard lens that came with my camera, but if you are looking for something nice and affordable for both close ups and landscapes, this lens will do the job."

    "Love it...Love it....For me this lens is useful for candid and street photography, it makes a camera like the 5D very un-obtrusive and non threatening, my professional cameras look like slightly oversized consumer superzooms with this lens on them and people go back to acting naturally much more quickly than when a giant white lens is pointed at them....Thought the lens was broken when I couldn't get it to retract and the manual days nothing of this, doing a little research I found that you have to have it in manual focus and make sure the lens is not asleep, hold the shutter half way down and then retract the lens to put on the cap, don't push it from the front!"

    "Great !...Love it...I'm used to holding my camera with tho hands with my left hand being on the lens for added stability and here is my main complaint about this lens: The focusing ring on the lens rotates when AF is working, this has robbed against my fingers many times with decent force, and while it's not painful, it's uncomfortable and affects my concentration and flow....Gives a very nice viewfinder image and the actual images from the camera and lens are outstanding even wide open."
