This is a very nice lens for the price. There is a learning curve that comes with using this lens. I was able to get a nice pictures on our Disney trip with it only after a few days snapping pics with it around the house to work our the kinks. It does not have auto focus so you have to do it urself. There is not a zoom lens so you have to be close to what you want to capture in your picture. All in all an excellent lens that will give you some cool pics!
