Pros: Sharpness, versatility, beautiful colors, price content, well detailed and contrasted but with open shadows, bokeh, AF fast, effective stabilizer

Cons: stabilizing problems

Opinion: This is the first lens I bought, used, based on the impressions of other users put online in this space. After two years of employment, I can say that I know you well. I first detected an image quality that has nothing to do with kit lenses, despite the low price. Great sharpness and even a nice bokeh, if it fits up close to the longer focal points. Also valid is 3D, especially in landscape shots in the long field. These are things that you wouldn't look at in a low cost goal, which is also well built. Moreover, its best features remain largely unchanged even at TA. If the data on the paper gives the idea of a dark goal, in practice it does not differ much from specimens with more convincing numbers, but then force to close the diaphragm for decent performance. The thing that struck me the most is the beauty of the warm colors, especially on machines with CCD sensor like the D80, with which it produces ready-made shots that do not need PP. With the D7200, however, it highlights the cool connotation of the machine, typical of the C-MOS. I believe that this element reflects the neutrality of the lens, a prerogative rare at any price level. Some have spoken of problems with the stabilizer, which have also affected the specimen in my possession. At one point he highlighted a kind of shot in the rotation of the zoom dial, which corresponded to a jump of the image observed in the crosshairs. It had become essentially unusable. However, it was enough to replace the stabilizer saucer, taken at 3 euros on the bay, plus another 40 for the intevent of the phototechnical laboratory including cleaning. The stabilizer also stays on about 1 minute from the time the machine is turned on, even if its switch is on off. Ultimately it is a valid and versatile goal, although generally undervalued, that allows you to go out without other lenses in tow not imposing noticeable penalties on the image quality. Recommended for those who want a clear and valid all-round lens, without spending large sums. At the price of which today are found specimens in good condition you can not ask for more.

Pros: overall quality, construction, zoom range, excellent sharpness.

Cons: Maybe a little 'dark, given that part of virtually F4.

Opinion: I got to try a little 'in all circumstances, given that own it for a while'. and it has always behaved well. AF fast, and sharpness rather good, in particular up to about 70, but also to 100 120, closed to f8, is equally valid In comparison to all optical from Kit, is certainly a substantial improvement. More 'has an excursion, which allows you to exit without any other. Meanwhile I have tested also various 18-200, but when I noticed that, it gave me more 'to this particular 125 to 200 others, well, I always come back to prefer this.

Pros: Construction quality / price ratio focal length versatility

Cons: stabilizer

Opinion: I bought this lens recommended by-law that was also used for professional photography services. I got to go to replace the kit lens of my Nikon D40 then and besides making me take a quantum leap forward is still in my photo kit ready to be used in those situations where you do everything a grand angle too little and too much canvas. I appreciated robustness and quality of the lenses despite being a consumer goal. To report the defect to the stabilizer. Both on my own with nikon attack on those of my father in law with canon attack after a given time to use the stabilizer fails and begins to vibrate also going to increase the consumption of the battery of the car. And 'an annoying flaw that once cycled the machine disappears but reappears after a time x. Sent to repair the cost exceeded the new lens price. In summary it was a lens that allowed me to make a leap forward in terms of kit, robust (I own it for 7 years) but withthe possibility that after months / years of use fails stabilizer making the annoying use. rn (NB after about 5 years of repair and not a frequently used order returns the fault to the stabilizer)

Pros: Good build quality, range of available focal, well established, focus on at least Canon good and not very noisy, low weight and good used price.

Cons: Just enough sharpness to TA, general sharpness only fair, starts at f4, and a dark coat.

Opinion: Generally seen the price on the road 150/160 euro does its job well, useful for the exits where you want a lens to do everything without spending too much, using it to better you get excellent shots, in particular I noticed it very well on the focal of 35mm f5.6 / 8. The stabilizer works really well, and the engine of focus is not too noisy. Overall a perspective that can be helpful.

Pros: Range of focal lengths, speed autofocus, zoom lock, quality of materials.

Cons: Brightness, stabilizer.

Opinion: I recently bought this objective used to replace the standard 18-55 kit on my 1100D. At first impression I noticed the quality of the material (the hood seems velveteen). Taking the first pictures known that the autofocus is very fast and quiet, especially if you choose a single AF point. At first glance, the stabilizer does not seem very effective. Very useful the zoom lock.
