Good walk around lens for the price. I realized that I needed the wider end so chose this lens over the 28-135mm. When stopped down a bit, it delivers pretty good quality pictures.
The focus can be slow and a bit noisy at times, not a lens you want to use in low light conditions.
But overall I am very satisfied with this lens, if you just started out or are a student on a budget and need a "jack of all trades" lens, this lens is a good choice.
