Description: Specially designed to suit the characteristics of digital SLR cameras, this compact and lightweight lens is now a reality

This zoom lens was exclusively designed for use with digital Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras and has a 6.9:1 zoom ratio. The image circle is designed to match the size of the image sensor of digital SLR cameras.
From wide angle to telephoto, this new zoom lens can capture a wide range of subjects. As there is no need to change lenses, there is no risk of missing those great shots. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 50cm (19.6in.) at all focal lengths and a maximum magnification of 1:5.3. A distance scale on the focus ring makes the lens convenient and easy to use.

Pros: Focal range and lightweight
Cons: No 'killers'.

As the preverbial 'walk-about lens' I cannot really fault it as it covers a great range.Quite a bit of distortion at either end but Photoshop can usually sort this out.Not the sharpest lens but I have quite a few A4 prints that I am more than happy with and my gallery contains mostly images using this lens on a Canon 20D.
I can give it the thumbs up as a walkabout lens but it's really not for more 'serious' work in any area.
PS.If the OS version costs roughly the same I would go for it.
