|comment:||This is the worst lens I have. Bought it together with my |
Dynax 505si and the 75-300 lens. I soon discovered that pictures taken with the 75-300mm lens looked much better.
After I bought the 50 f/1.7 lens, I was amazed by the difference in picture quality, even on 10x15cm prints.
After that, I used the 50mm for 80% of my pictures.
This kit lens was only used where I really needed to go wider than 50mm.
I never use this lens on digital, although it is up to 2/3 stop faster than the 18-70mm kit lens at some focal lengths. That could be an advantage, but the 18-70mm lens is soooo much sharper.
