So the lens arrived yesterday morning.
. So what are my first impresions - well when i opened it i was a bit suprised. The lens was big and a bit heavy. It is a nice improvment from the 18-55mm. when i put it on my camera it was better balenced than with the 18-55mm and the focus is extremely fast accurate and quiet.
The image stabilasor is very effective, but it is a bit noisier than on the 18-55mm.
I didn't had any time to take some action shots but i was able to do some macro. I photographed some flowers and insects from a distance of 0.6m and they are pretty sharp and the background nicely blured. Also when i zoom in on the camera or on the computer the center is very sharp.
The zoom ring isn't that good - it is not very smooth, but the focus ring is great. It is firm, smooth and when you go over infinite you don't damage it.
So i am very happy with this lens. Now i only have to take some action shots to test its speed and compare the action pictures to the quality of the ones take with the 18-55mm lens.
All in all for the first impresions i do recommend it, because of 28-135mm range, quality and great macro shots.
