|comment:||Now, that's a long zoom for someone on a budget who likes to travel. But... Don't expect much in terms of sharpness and AF speed. The deep hood provided with it certainly works well... But try to use it with a polarizer and that's another story as the front element rotates when focussing. Would I buy it again? Probably not!|
Edited: Not that bad on a APS size sensor... The center of the image is sharper than the corners, so it is quite useful after all.
