Reviews

"A big surprise when it was introduced, featuring ED-IF AF-S in a consumer lens, many thought this was just another plastic unusable lens. This lens actually works allot better then what it costs. Giving you sharp images, and featuring 1 ED element, IF and AF-S, for fast focusing.

This lens is highly recommendable, it is a better lens on a FF camera then a DX camera(awkward zoom range on a DX camera).
