What a deal!
on May 12, 2014
I just got it and I still can't believe the price. This is a marvelous set. I now feel complete with my accessories array. This even came with a lens hood...which I didn't expect or maybe I didn't remember that it was part of the package.
I've taken several photos and the auto-focus speed, that everyone's talking about, I can't yet comment on because I haven't used it in the real world yet. I didn't think it was too slow. However, I don't see the problem with using the MF if the AF is too slow. It's right there, wide ring and easy to use...bam!...all focused.
I don't find it noisy like others have mentioned...maybe I got a good one. It's pretty quiet. But I might feel differently if I were snapping a deer in the woods where I need it real quiet...maybe. All in all, I love it, no negatives here especially for the price. Holy Cow!
