Review Date: May 14, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: $100.00 | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Seems solid, cheap price.
Cons:
soft, lack of color, slow focus if it even does focus.

Maybe I got a bad copy but comparing it to my Tamron 17-35 it comes up way short. Yes it's cheap but cheap doesn't help when the end result is extremely low quality images. If you want a lens to take on trips that you won't be heartbroken to lose or damage then you might want this one. Other than that I can't see any reason I would recommend this lens to anyone. It's not even as good as a canon 18-55 kit lens.

My advice would be STAY AWAY. It's cheap for a reason folks.
