All in all, this is a good lens for sub-frame cameras, at a good price. As is generally the case with inexpensive lenses, it will do best if you can afford to stop it down by one or two f-stops, but when you do so, it will reward you with very good images, at an affordable price.
William Castleman
It is unrealistic to expect great optical performance out of a variable aperture consumer zoom lens designed as a compromise. Less than excellent resolution at wide open apertures, substantial linear distortion, and contrast drop off at long focal lengths are to be expected. Nevertheless, there are times when you can only take one lens, and each of the consumer lenses tested has its good points.
