Pros: Stabilization

Cons: You have to settle

Opinion: I bought this used lens for about 100 euros and I have to say that it did not excite me very much that I wanted to resell it, then, I had an idea to take a certain type of photographs and this optics turned out to be so fundamental that I decided to keep it. You can see the work I've done with this lens in my galleries. Of course it is a very cheap lens so maybe you can not expect much but if you put it in a position to work without asking for the impossible it can be a good optics despite everything.

Pros: Price, weight and compactness, IS.

Cons: Contrast and sharpness at 250mm, manual focus ring impractical.

Opinion: Using this perspective with the 550D since its purchase to complete the kit lens 18-55 IS.rnRitengo has an excellent price / performance ratio. Is used at very competitive prices irrisori.rnL'AF is not fast especially in low light but gets the job done; surprising stabilizer is useful in photography freehand for video.rnConsigliabile who began photographing for his handling sporadically or those who need a telephoto. RNLA consider, however, that a more "honest" in the range 55-200 mm.rnDiaframmi Recommended: f / 8-f / 11.

Pros: Price, stabilizer, light and compact.

Cons: Hood uncomfortable, not USM.

Opinion: I have always had a great time there! I would say that at the beginning is a really good lens tele-have! Pleasantly surprised by the stabilization. Absolutely uncomfortable the hood! But essential in my opinion. Too bad it does not have the ultrasonic motor which makes it of little use in sports pictures .. But all in all I would say that it is really a very good optics!

Pros: price, stabilizer and lightness

Cons: building a little plasticky, low brightness to 250

Opinion: Given the money it offers is certainly an excellent lens for those who have a limited budget or has just entered the world of SLR ... I use it as fully in the 18-55 and I have always enjoyed the ... image stabilizer makes a great canvas for sporting events ... a little noisy and low brightness to 250 mm but most of the pros are advised against ...

Pros: Cost, size, weight, stabilizer, the overall quality of the images

Cons: Sharpness and contrast to 250mm

Opinion: Excellent value for money, has a good stabilizer and a focal length over 200mm long sfruttabile.rnPurtroppo loses much sharpness and contrast, the situation improves turning a couple of stops but already part of 5.6 so for sport is not exactly the best . rna part this is a good lens for that price, the quality from 55 to 150mm is more than enough and weight and compact dimensions make it an alternative higher quality than tuttofare.rnL lens' AF is mediocre, not very noisy but on average slower, obviously not USM so you can not expect troppo.rnLo stabilizer works very well: it is not invasive activation and does his duty even if it consumes a lot of batteria.rnIn general can be a good buy in kits or if you need a canvas to use once in a while, otherwise it has more sense to try a 70-200 or a fixed tele maybe in used (with costs at least tripled). rnVenduto for a tamron 70-300 VC, but it's another thing canon is egrav &and, defended well when compared to prezzo.rn
