    :dunno:

    It's compact and cheaply built but I'm hoping it's sharper than the kit lens. I'll do some test shots..

    I think nearly all the canon (2X - 6X or 3X to 8X) F 3.X - 5.X midrange zooms for FF are regarded as crap.

    They'll all old designs etc.... I almost never hear anybody talking about them on various photography forums. Most likely there's a reason for it.

    I can't even name the exact aperature and zoom range of any of canon's non-L mid-range zooms.
