    Strength:

    I was worried about this lens when I first got it because it was one of the cheaper ones, but I've had it for a while now and I love every picture that it takes, it's also very easy to use.

    This is a great lens, really sharp and with great reach. Don't be afraid to try it, it could be just what you need.

    Strength:

    Makes nicely sharp photos. Relatively easy and friendly. ê

    Weakness:

    I was expecting it a little lighter. Not really fast, but fortunately, my favorite subjects (when I use this lens) don''t move much. Focusing can be tricky because of the very nature of the lens but, all in all, I am very glad I bought one. 

    I am very pleased with the overall performance of the lens. In fact, it was a major bargain. I''ve gotten some decent shots with it, but I''m still learning to handle it adequately.

    N/A. Bought it used from someone who never took it out of the box.

    Strength:

    Nice range of zoom

    Weakness:

    Too slow for wildlife in lower light conditions.
    Construction does not feel durable.

    A nice zoom for bright conditions and a first zoom, but for serious photographers, look someplace else.

    Just about the best all round zoom lens ever produced, great for fast action sports & wildlife.
    A little soft at the 300 end, but stopped down to F8 or above superb!

    Strength:

    Sturdy
    Good range
    fairly sharp on prints

    Weakness:

    difficult to zoom in on a moving object
    Kind of heavy, but it is a tele

    Was great for me as a starter tele lens. I plan to use it for many more years as it seems able to. I have used it for many different things and unless you're trying to capture moving animals or sports photos it is a great bargain.

    Customer Service

    Haven't needed any
