Dave, Bedford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
My second purchase of the same lens after the first one broke after an accident (after falling out of my camera bag whilst attached to the camera body), but for the price you can't go wrong.
Images are sharp - but needs decent light.
Macro shots aren't too bad.
Overall, a good lens with decent range.
Bad points:
Hunts for focus at times.
Build quality could be better.
Not really a lens you want to carry everywhere - can get quite heavy.

russell, Crieff Family man

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great cost and easy to start shooting from the moment it's on the camera.
Bad points:
Not really bad points but at certain extremes you can get slight blurring at the edges of the shot. But this is a budget lens so it is very hard to be really critical of this

George, Worcester Keen but amateur photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good lens with brilliant macro capabilities, although the aperture doesn't seem too impressive it blurs out the background nicely, the images seem sharp, with good contrast and accurate colors throughout both the zoom and aperture ranges, a brilliant all around lens that is great value for money.
Bad points:
Reasonably slow at focusing but not by any means too slow, it may well struggle with sport and wildlife, it is only slow in drastic changes of focus from, say, 50cm to a few meters it can be reasonably slow, however, in delicate changes (such as being focused in and around some footballers) it is incredibly snappy.
