I enjoy this lens. It's not MINDBLOWING but it functions well. It's sharpness (on my copy) is between the 18-55 kit lens and the 50 1.7. So it's more than reasonable. Mind you i'm only a part time pixel peeper. . .i come from a more "ruff neck" school of photography. a little more street, a little more punk rock hip hop. and as a street lens it's fabulous. it has that much desired normal range on aps-c. it's fun to attempt composition with this lens. it will open you up to new ideas. at first it's a little dull, but don't give up. keep it on your body until the clouds open up and you start to see fun new compositions and imagery occur.
And well. . .the price. i love a bargain and that i can get something fun for the price.
i like it!
are there better lenses? sure. . . can you make good images with this one? ABSOLUTELY!!
