comment:I bought this lens mostly due to the other positive reviews here on Dyxum. I was looking for an 'every day' lens with good colours and varied focal lengths. I like that its a little bit wide and a little bit tele, a really good range for the photos I take most.
Very impressed with the colours, not poppy like the Tokina or 'romantic' like the Minolta, but bright, clear and well represented.
My reason for buying this lens was to invest a higher proportion of my budget in the lens i would use the most, and to that end I'm extremely satisfied. money very well spent.
