This was my very first lens, and I still use it regularly. It has a 3.1 rating of photodo.com, which is pretty good for a zoom, and it does seem quite good to me. I probably have more pictures hanging on my walls taken with this lens than any other single lens, not just because it is good but because it was the lens that I had with me when I found those one-of-a-kind opportunities. If I am traveling light and want a single lens with me, this is usually the one I pick.
