Is This Lensany good?

Any personal experiences, or comments?

I'm very chuffed with the price - considering it :D

That's the one.

The smaller test shots in the review appear to be blurred (out of focus), and the larger ones seem very good.

Does anyone think the lens is a bit budgety or is there minimal difference compared to a Canon/Nikkor lens?

Look at the customer ratings here:

And don't say you have not been warned to buy there...

That rating can't be right ...

Warehouse Express is one of the largest camera shops in the UK, and their service is reputed to be excellent. They're well featured on a lot of the professional photo magazines, they even have Damien Lovegrove of Photo Pro magazine reviewing equipment for them. I've not dealt with them enough to swear by their performance, but from the times I've visited the store I've had no complaints.

Warehouse Express: note the review site only has 7 ever, of which 2 are in the last 6 months. That's hardly a significant sample.
