Why is there a need for you to elaborate with that 1.5X here???iz_k said:For that kinda price, it's a really good lens. What I like is the range it has, preferable for a 1.5x DSLR.
I'm selling mine cos in need of cash.
Sad to say, but have to bro.. Hope to start all over again after that.
It makes more sense to know why you need a particular len and what it can do for you, not to buy just because you can afford it.bernards said:It makes sense to upgrade your short focal lengths first, since it's the most commonly used.
cos the 1.5x makes the effective range of a 18-70mm becomes 27-105mm.swhyge said:Why is there a need for you to elaborate with that 1.5X here???
I remember year ago when turbo pascal was famous, everything software has turbo there... Then dot com.... then irrelevance...
Doesnt a brighter lens allow the cam to focus better/faster as well? esp for prosumer bodies which may not focus properly beyond f5.6. :dunno:Gymrat76 said:Honestly speaking, I feel its a good lens to have because of the range it offers. Sure, it may not be a 'fast' lens, but you have to ask yourself, how often do you shoot at f/2.8 anyways? A faster lens does have its advantages, i.e. in bad lighting etc, but I mostly use this lens for landscapes and scenery shots etc, which mostly requires apertures larger than f/5.6-f8, so its not a problem.
The price is great is you consider that you're getting an AF-S, ED lens with nice range
