Cheezus!! I'm sorry I posted these images. I did not say this lens was as good as or better than any other lens. I was simply stating that I was very pleasantly surprised by the results. I did say "for its intended use...".

I attended a kid's birthday party, for heaven's sake. Not a model shoot. I sat quietly in a chair and zoomed in or out as needed. I did not want to leap all over the place thrusting a 30mm at people, particularly the kids.

Of course there are better lenses and it is absurd to compare this kit with a prime. Having said that, no one can convince me that the quality of the images posted here (and the rest of my keepers) is crap.

And, I should mention I have the Sigma 30mm on order.

Peter
