    Nice lens for different projects

    This is a very good lens to carry if you have a smiple project and you don't want to carry many lenses. It is exactly why I got this lens. Now there are some good things and some not very good things about this lens.

    Pro:
    1. Versatile and lightweight
    2. Wide range between wide angle and tele (mostly if you're doing full frame or film cameras) not so much in APC and small digital.
    3. Good camera manufacturer
    4. Cheap compared to Nikon lenses (which I love very very much)

    Con:
    1. Aperture (lens opens up at 5.3 or something) which does not make it a very fast lens especially for low light or sports photography (i do lots of car racing photographry). Of course I compare this to my fast f:2.8 lenses from Nikon that cost almost $2000 each
    2. Lens is considered soft which means you won't get the same quality or sharpness you can expect from a Nikon lens
    3. In digital bodies like the D80 which has the small APC sensor, you won't get the full image or the true wide angle of 28mm.

    Well built, solid lens with excellent optical qualities

    This lens is sharper than the newer model but it is also a bit heavier, which is good for those with big hands. It is really a bargain compares to how much the newer model cost and outperforms the newer model in virtually all categories except size and weight. Plus it's made in Japan unlike the new model which is made in China. Keep in mind that with a superzoom lens it's a good idea to stop down once or twice for maximum sharpness, especially at the extreme ends.

    If you can get this lens for around $150 don't think twice. It really is a good performer and will not break the bank.

    Great all around lens!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Excellent lens for mu Pentax K5. I normally leave this lens on the camera because it fits most of my needs. I only change when I need a super wide angle lens or extreme close up. I bought this lens in order to not have to change lenses for close and telephoto needs.

    Excellent lens for any outside use

    This lens with the VC is now an excellent outdoor lens. Slightly heavy, but
    it covers such a big range and does it well. A tripod is needed as the aperture
    closes down quite far to make a hand held shot not possible. I used to use three
    lens for outside use and now this one lens replaces them all.

    great lens but heavy for its size

    This is a very good lens for fullframe cameras, works well on subframes that have drive-motors as well...just one caveat with it, it's not light. Very sharp and reasonably fast and clear for a superzoom but it's a pocket full of change.

    you can check the specs on slrgear.com
    this lens is 550g vs 430g for the Tamron 18-250 which is the equivalent lens on a Sony with body-IS

    And that extra 120 grams is really noticeable on a light camera.
    It doesn't help much on a heavy camera :)
    Seriously adds to the inertia.

    But the IS is very good, it doesn't vignette much like the T18-250 on a subframe...it's a good all-around carry. As long as you don't mind carrying it :)

    It certainly makes WAY more sense than the Canon 28-300 EF-L IS at 1670g and $2250 retail.
