reviewswhat are people saying

"The variable zoom is so versatile, it has become the only lens we carry."

bhphotovideo.com

"It was already an excellent buy, but the rebate made it even more terrific. It will be my all-in-one lens on my Pentax K-x, as its range from 27mm to 300mm is all I need."

"The major problem I had with the lens is that it wouldn't lock into position when I was trying to use the autofocus and the shutter wouldn't depress."
