OK Lens for snapshots - poor focus at infinity
I have been using this lens for 6 months regularly. It was purchased as a refurb. Generally, it has functioned very well, mechanically. The focusing motor is good and I don't feel that it is noisy. I would use this lens much more often, except that for more distant subjects the focus is very poor at any aperture setting.

I have to say, that after having used this lens for some time now, that I have not had the quality results that others have had with this lens. The older version of this lens was better, in my opinion...disappointed.

Sturdy and great lens
When I got my T3 I knew I needed an upgrade from the kit lens. After a lot of research I knew this lens is the one. When I finally got it I tested right away and the results were amazing. I just love this lens overall. Takes amazing nature photos. And now I have a 7D the pictures are even sharper than ever.
