For me this lens has been pretty bad. Or perhaps I am a bad photographer! I have it on a Nikon D50. It is basically not a colorful nor sharp lens in any range when using the camera on completely auto. I have several prime lenses and this is my only zoom, so maybe I am used to the sharper primes. Of course my camera itself could be defective also? But I will say the range of this lens has been nearly perfect and rarely do I find I need a different range other than 28-80. I'd love to buy a better lens in this same range.
