    Verified Purchase

    I am a armature and bought this lens to complement the kit lens on my T3, great lens, great price, I am very pleased with the results of the pictures using this lens. I didn't go with the 70-300mm because the price with the IS was out of my budget, this was a great compromise.

    Great lens. I used it for the first time this weekend, taking 400+ pictures. Very good focus, even at long distances. I am a novice/hobbyist photographer. For me, the lens was perfect!

    Excellent lens for the price, although I am a novice photographer and can't tell you a lot of technical info, but I can tell you that I put the lens on and started taking pictures, which were awesome. Good stabilization and excellent hand help photos. Impressive.
