Far and away the worst lens that I've ever owned. Won't even give decent 4X6's. Very poor contrast, very poor sharpness. Even if you only intend to shoot in this range occasionally avoid this product. Got much, much better photos by shooting with my 75-300mm and cropping in. A poor deal at any price.

I enjoyed the lense - I used it with a monopod and I have gotten excellent results at outdoor concerts with a Nikon FE2 and 200 spped film. Not recommended for evening, low light situations.
