"Must have lens"5.0 starson by jiwhite
Pros: versatile, sharp, easy
Cons: heavy, use with atleast and monopod
Summary: My husband and I love this lens. We bought one and fought over it so much that we had to buy another one. This is anamazingly easy to use lens with all the bells and whistles. Because of the f/2.8 it is great for lowlight and the telephoto range is very versatile. The autofocus works almost all of the time without jitter. The quality and crispness of the images is excellent. The only downside is that it is too heavy to use without at least a monopod. The tripod mounting ring works very smoothly. If you can only buy one lens and you can afford this one, this is it.
