I did a lot of research before buying this lens. I looked at many brands an price points. I have to say I am very pleased with this lens. Previously I had been using a Sony SAL75300 Kit len which was ok but a little too soft for my taste.
As a newcomer to the world of high-end photography, after many, many years of taking shots with lesser equipment, I finally made the jump to a full-frame Nikon DSLR recently, and needed a solid do-almost-all lens to get me started, while being budget-friendly. This lens filled that bill VERY well!
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.
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.
Awesome value for the price. Works great on my full frame Nikon D750 as tested and almost as well on my APS-C Nikon D7100 as tested. Chromatic aberation is better than i was expecting. Sharpness is very good at widest aperture at 300mm and no need for A/F fine tuning.
Nothing is better than this lens in the relation price/quality
