- Good lens for freelance photography- April 7, 2012
This lens is great for when you need a nice zoom, but it definitely isn't the best deal out there if you're wanting to pursue a career in photography. As some other people have said, this lens makes very soft pictures, so they aren't meant to be printed in big sizes. A lot of the time (at least mine) it doesn't want to focus, so I end up manually focusing a lot, which makes the pictures look even softer. And with a low aperature, instead of having a blurring effect, it creates a more lined background (example in the picture of the girl sledding). I've dropped it a couple of times and it still works perfectly, so that's definitely a plus!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice- December 31, 2013
While I didn't expect a lot of eye-popping quality, the lens is a very decent lens for what I paid. It will get used mainly for astrophotography mounted on a tracking telescope so image stabilization isn't needed in the lens itself. In low light conditions, the AF is not the best. But, my uses will utilize the EOS camera control software so AF is not needed. The only real thing about some of the Canon lenses are that they could use an infinity setting (marking) to make it easier for those hard to focus astrophotography shots. All around, the lens has been a nice addition. Purchased for about $160 when seen at other stores for nearly $300. I would say I got a good deal.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Lens!- March 30, 2013
I read some reviews on here about it being blurry in low light and at the maximum distance and I didn't have much of a problem with that. Yea it's a tad blurry at longer distances but it's nothing that can be fixed in photoshop. I also saw another on here about how they couldn't crop into the subject of their photos without it blurring. From my experience that only happens if you have a small number of mega pixels. My camera has 18 mp and the more mp you have the more you can crop and zoom in on the computer. So it works perfectly for me and my canon rebel t3i. =) Very happy! The photo I'm attaching was taken from a long ways away and, as you can see, it turned out great. =)Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
