    Cons: reflections in side light and front light; rotating front part.

    Pros: fast; when stopped down also quite shart in ideal conditions

    Summary: I would never buy this lense, when I have this option, but it was included in the camera set. However it's not that bad in optical quality, as I've expected, so it's quite usefull for me when shooting wide angle pictures.

    Cons: not versatile for a zoom,the lenshood is easly lost

    Pros: beginners amd amateurs can use it together with the tamron 55-200 or the 70-300 and cover 18-200/300 mm with 2 lenses.

    Summary: good to start dslr
