Colin, Aylesbury 50 1yr DSLR experience

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good solid lens with very good optics for the price. Very fast (f2,8) through the entire zoom
This replaces my std kit lens from Canon 400D and is my 'walk-about' lens'.
Easy to pick up its needs (see below) and adjust accordingly
Looks the part.
Bad points:
The lens hood is poor, not big enough so can get lens flare if not careful in some situations.
Manual to Auto a little clumsy. Be aware of setting to avoid damage (see instructions)
Perhaps a little too soft at f2.8 so care needed in composition & focus
Auto focus a tad on the loud side but that's a minor point.
Large dia 82mm means filters expensive but I took this into consideration at time of purchase. I wanted the zoom range and fast speed.
