Bought this hoping for improved sharpness with cropped bird images. Failed in several respects.compared to the Nikon “P” version: less sharp, very noisy focusing and stabilization. Much cheaper almost flimsy built. Return it bought the Nikon
One of the two lenses that came with a package deal for my Canon EOS Rebel XTi DSLR. While I don’t use this lens as often as my short lens, this is my absolute favorite. I use it for the majority of my macro and darkroom shots, and obviously for plenty of wildlife and zoom-necessary photo...
Decent entry level extended zoom. Plenty sharp for consumer use. Take the MACRO feature with a grain of salt though. 4.9ft min focus and does NOT make this a macro lens by any stretch of the imagination. Smooth zoom ring though. Of the plastic zooms I have handled this one is decent.
Price/performance ratio can't be beat. Metal mount! Comes with lens hood that is reversible. Light lens with out feeling too cheap. Great for back yard bird/critter watching (within 30 feet). I've taken some full frame shots of squirrels that are very nice.
There are not too many. It could be a tad sharper, but then it would cost more. IT is very usable as is. I'm not going to say the speed is a weakness as you are buying a f4 lens. If you want to shoot low light go pay for a f2.8.
Things I like; build quality appears very good, zoom and focus rings are smooth and have a nice degree of damping, focus motor is super quiet, uses same size filters as my other Sony lenses, and my favorite feature- focus can be fine tuned/adjusted when camera auto focus is engaged, nice!
This is one of my favorite lens. The quality of the images are amazing.
I’m still a newbie but so far this is preforming well ! Sharp , long, great VR !
I love this lens, however, not the sharpest or best in low light. Great for birding!
Amazing lens, this lens is all I use for sport photography(soccer). Well I have a 2x extender so I’m good.
This is my first mid-range lens, and I'm quite pleased with it. As some have mentioned it's a tad noisier than other lenses, however, not enough to bother me. Takes nice clear photos (attached is full moon shot from Nov 3, 2017). It's a heavier lens, but again not so much that it bothers me.
Really nice and sharp lens. I use it when I want to go lighter and the subjects are not too far away.
