reviewswhat are people saying

"I'm very impressed with the quality of the photos with this lens. I couldn't find anything wrong with any photos at any range. Durable construction, not too long as to make the camera unbalanced. Nice lens!!!"

"Very quick focus and keeping in mind this is a low cost lens that gives decent image results that compare well with its price point. Very happy with it for those times I need that extra reach. Out of focus bokeh is also quite nice."

"I wouldn't rate it very high. Photos are not that sharp but OK. I am finding it difficult to take sharp photos at full zoom. I tried playing with the IBIS and OIS but no luck. Auto focus is not that great in low light. You might get frustrated and give up. Some shots turn out good and most of them not that great. This lens seems to be more suitable for video."
