reviewswhat are people saying

"Works great in low light fast and sharp."

bhphotovideo.com

"Focus is sharp (and fast) through all f-stops, all the way to the edges. Solid lens, though a bit surprising at the size (same size and weight as my 18-135mm zoom)."

bhphotovideo.com

"One oddity is the feature requiring a switch and focus ring lock to switch between AF and MF operation - presumably to protect the AF mechanism."
