Very good for the money! Not super sharp but clearly enough for the price tag. It is worth noting that according to some is the Mk1 better built than the Mk2, then 2an modified to be cheaper to produce.
Very good lens for those who just bought a camera with kitobjektivet 18-55mm. Focus can be a little slow in some situations, but it's not so often you notice it, atleast not like normal amateur.
250mm is usually enough for those who just started with the photo.
But as always, there are some less good things, clearly, I have to mention.
- There is no lens you can grow much in. After just a few months, you will probably start to feel that it limits you.
- The images are sharp and fine ... As long as you're shooting when it's bright and cloudless. If you're out shooting in the wild and the sun goes behind a cloud, it is largely driven even higher ISO.
- It gets very far when you zoom in all the way, people might think you are compensating for something. Besides, it's not always so convenient when you are a photographer and it is crowded where you are.
- As mentioned Dipper in English, in images that are extremely sharp. However as you will manage as long as you do not enlarge them up to a show or so.
Despite all that is written, so I must mention that this probably is the best zoom lens you can buy in this price range, considering what you get. If you need a good zoom lens with this or similar scope but which may not cost more than 2000-3000, you probably did not buy a better, if you can not find anything else used of course.
Even though it is most safely at home so it performs very well once it gets to come out and play! The only thing that applies is that it's nice weather outside.
Canon lenses and great pictures.
Not as many uses as I first thought but an obvious objective to have when the time comes.
It's fun to shoot things that are not the eyes see but which you then see in the picture (details).
Considering the price, it is a good buy for the hobby photographer.
I am satisfied with this lens, but be aware of its limitations: this is a very decent "entry-level" phone.
It will not deliver the Sharpest images, but comes with a useful image stabilization and the 35mm equivalent range of 88-400mm is hard to beat. If you are not going to make the big enlargement of your pictures, this is an easy buy. Great as a casual outdoors optic-and for portraits.
However if you plan to take snapshots at concerts, indoor games, you May need a faster lens.
+ Light, compact, unpretentious
+ Useful focal range
+ Precise autofocus; note ultra-sonic but not really noisy
- Average IQ (When looking into detail)
- Rotating focus
If you need a superzoom but are not into DSLRs yet, I'd advise you to get a prosumer compact superzoom like the Fuji HS10 or Canon SX30 instead - they come with x35 optical zoom (700 or more equivalent).
