comment:As I think everyone has already said, for the price this lens is brilliant!

I bought it new with my *ist DS as an upgrade from the standard kit lens and used it solidly for about 6 years.

Its a great lens for anyone starting out in photography. Its small, sharp, light and has a very useful zoom range.

The only thing I may fault is the rather large amount of distortion at both ends of the zoom range.
