Saw it on ebay for 160.00.looks like a nice compact lens but I am unsure.
Personally I would stay away from somethinh with that much range. If you do a search for this range of lens on here you will find alot of discussion and the conclusion pretty much agrees with me.
Like JIP said.....lenses with such a long focal range aren't as good optically as a similarly priced lens with a shorter focal range.
long focal range means lower quality.
however if it's all you can afford or it suits your needs then it would probably perform adequately - just don't expect it to have top notch optics.
Thanks I was unaware of that fact.
If you need an all-in-one lens, it'll probably be fine. I agree with the other posts though, you are probably giving up some image quality to get the convenience of having only one lens. Depending on what you shoot, how you shoot, and how big you enlarge your photos, you may not even notice it though. It would be best if you could do some test shots, and see with your own eyes how well it performs.
