Pros: A nice long zoom range which allows you to get really close in.
Cons: After much use, parts feel a little loose, AF rarely works in low light.
I have been using this lens now for about 8 months and find it to perform the job that I need it too, however, it does not exceed my expectations or really shine in any way. It takes good quality pictures, which I think every lens should do, and it performs its purpose, and besides, for the price I paid, it cant be beat. I have a few complaints with it though, after a lot of use, things are starting to be a little loose, the focusing ring does not feel as solid as it used to, and neither does the zoom ring. It is a good lens for the price, but if you are going to use it a lot, or want pro quality results I recommend spending a little more money. However, for the amateur photographer it should meet their requirements.
