    First I must say that I'm glad to be with the Company. I was so shocked that they've given me a chance to have a credit card. Now that this has occured I ordered this lens, was going to send it back. I still have the thrity days, But I just ordered the T5 so Ihave to find out what I will do with this other. Well, I think I know. The features of this lens is really cool. Although I have owned one, but, never used as much.I took some pictures of downtown L.A. SundayWorks really good. So I'm Keeping it!

  • versatile lens

    I find this lens very versatile. It is also not too bulky to bring on our regular dog park visits. I can take pictures of my dogs from different distances. It performs adequately for what I intended it for. Only thing is that the lens is made in Taiwan and not made in Japan as indicated in the description.

    This is an excellent lense for any photographer looking for a good, standard lense for shooting landscape shots. Or if you simply want to be able to get a much wider inclusion of objects or people in a single shot. The lense makes things that are up close look like they are further away. FAST SHIPPING! it arrived in 3 days!
