Full zoom and IS is a treat to use!

Great value lense, I bought on Amazon for £140, unbeatable at that price range, and actually great quality!

I was surprised how much IS made a difference, in daylight, or cloudy weather, the full range of zoom gives great results. AF is fairly accurate.

But in low light the full zoom is useless without a tripod. For Dusk/Night shooting, a tripod is almost essential. But with a bit of manual focus, still gets great results.


Attached to my camera, it is now too long to fit in my case! haha
But warning, it is quite long.
