i'm not an expert on lenses, but I know what I like.The only fault I could I could find was, auto focus was just a tad slower than comparable canon or sigma lense.Optical quality seemd realy decent,very sharp clear imagaes no flare,well built for a inexpensive lens.F stops are 3.5 to 4.5 ,an average to lenses in this class.Just good value,and made in Japan,not that other place.
This was my first lens for my Rebel XTi. It was a great place for me to start. The quality is not the greatest, but that was okay for me because I was not sure how much I would get into photography (or if it would fall by the wayside like some other hobbies).
I've had it for almost a year now, and though I prefer my bigger lenses, it's nice to have this one for an average outing where I can fit a nice camera into a medium size purse. I've found it has gotten a little loose as time has gone on, but it still takes very nice pictures.

So i bought thus lens because i wanted a wide angle lens for landscape, i totally didnt receive what i payed for. It wasnt even a wide angle lens, its the same as any other lens, slow focusing, bulkier than other lenses, and the picture quality isn't great. I returned it and got a refund, still waiting for the money though and its been 2 weeks. Dont buy this if you think its a cheap wide angle lens!
