reviewswhat are people saying

"This lens is a great fast focusing, sharp lens. I have been using this lens to take bird photos for the last few weeks and it does a marvelous job. The greatest advantage of this zoom is its size. It breaks down to being only a 1/4 inch longer than my 18-55 zoom kit lens. I also like that is allows manual focus with AF on."

"Great lens, exactly as advertised. Easy to focus. Perfect for the camera body."

"The only con is no macro and its shortest focusing range is about 4 feet."
