comment:This is a great walk around and party lens, I took a lot of picture during company's party. I was not really impress when I saw the photos in the computer, I was thinking about to sell my copy. However I went to Costco to develop the picture, there were different a story. I was so amazing with all the photos, the color are beautiful and really sharp. Now the lens is for keep.

So what I learn is "I don't see how good of the lens until I develop the photos"
