Wow! I picked this lens up on Ebay for all of about $46.00. I initially bought it because I thought it might be a good portrait lens until I can afford a good 50mm prime. In the meantime, for grins, I slapped one of my "macro" lenses that'd I'd originally purchased for the kit lens that came with my Canon xti to see what it could do. Did I mention WOW? I set the lens for manual focus and hung out at my kitchen window, trying my African violets at different angles, as well as my Forget Me Not sprouts.

Talk about sharp! I think that this lens is going to be a good substitution until I can afford to pick up a good macro zoom lens. If the portraits come out as well as the macro shots, I'll be totally impressed.

For the money, so far so good. I think this will stay on the camera more than the 18-55mm kit lens that came with the camera!

Now, on AF, it does search...quite a bit, but I grew up on 35mm where I had to focus myself, so this is not a big deal to me.

Not a bad lens at all for the money!
