28-300vr
Review Date: Feb 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Price, weight, colour saturation. Very usable as a macro
Cons:
Slow speed, plasic feel

Borrowed this lens from a friend (I am saving for a 70-200 2,8 IS). I was eceptic at first, but made a few very nice shots with it. The saturated pictures are not for everyone, but with the mushrooms i shot it came out nicely. At 300MM it is difficult to shoot hand-held due to the slow glass. Overall this is a nice lens for it's price. Due to the close focussing distance you can use it as a macro, but the results are not as good as my (2x more expensive) Canon 100MM 2,8 Macro.
