This lens is only good for long shots that a regular telephoto lens can’t reach. Its very shaky, which means you definitely need a tripod when you use this thing. It is not my favorite lens, but It has a purpose. I can catch shots of birds way deep in the trees, but only still shots. It is extremely difficult to get a clean shot of something moving. This lens is very blurry, the image is not sharp at all. I won’t say it’s trash, but You should have one in your inventory just in case. Lets say you are on the beach and you see a boat far out in the water, you might be able to get a good photo if you can manage the shakiness.
I have a rating system I want to use. This lens gets 3 out 5 stars
On AMAZON: You may find it cheaper on Ebay.
