comment:I was not happy with the performance of the kit lens and was advised by a senior member to go for this lens. I am very grateful to that member as I am completely satisfied with this lens and I feel its value for money. The only negative thing I feel about this lens is that this lens fails to cope up in low light, otherwise an excellent lens!
