Bruce, Surbiton Manic Picture Taker

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The lens is light, yet stable - even in the hands of a 6 year old who managed to take excellent shots with it. The Canon EOPS 100D with this lens attached weighs less than the body alone of my Nikon D90. What can I say more? It is an excellent lens.
Bad points:
It would have been unbeatable had it been 18-250mm, but then the price would have been different! I have found no bad points about the lens; it is as I hoped it would be.

Good points:
Great budget lens.
Bad points:
Focus tends to soften the further the zoom is extended using auto focus, so best to use manual focus.

Very light compare to some telephoto lens, very good image quality especially for sport mode. Overall I will recommend it to anyone as it is also value for money.
