reviewswhat are people saying

"Solid construction. Good feel during use. Good combination of characteristics cover most every-day needs minimizing lense changing."

"I use the lens for everyday use. It has a nice range and a good price point for the quality. It is easily interchangeable and well built."

bhphotovideo.com

"Although a good lens with decent quality I am very disappointed in the lens creep. I expected some creep but unless you are on 18mm the lens pops to 200mm. This lens is useless on a tripod unless you are horizontal. If you point this lens down it moves and is virtually useless on a tripod. Consider this lens if your camera is always held in your hands. If the creep was not so bad I would enjoy this lens but now I have no choice but to find an alternative since much of what I do is on a tripod."
