28_300_macro
Review Date: Jun 19, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Portable, compact, good range and excellent macro.
Cons:
abit slow focusing on AF

I bought this primarily as a macro lens as similar prime macro lenses are way out of my price bracket.
The quality on macro shooting is excellent, the right amount of light balance and coluor capture with a nice soft focus for good effects.

As for problems with WB and ISO, when using consumer lens like this you should be doing this manually anyway and not letting your camera attempt it, as for use on sports pics manual focusing has always been quicker and easier for me.

Overall its a good allrounder for the price and as a carry one do all lens its way better than others
