I'm looking for this Aspherical lens to replace my existing 2 lenses (18-55, 70 - 300). Any body has any experience with this lens?

My camera body is Canon rebel XT.
Thanks for your kind attention.

Hi Rajesh, its a pretty good lens - the best SLR superzoom you can find in that price range. As always though and as I'm sure you are aware, it is a bit of a compromise. I have used it briefly and it does the job very well. But however good it is, it will never compare to having a good combination in your range. That's something you have to live with.

What do you find yourself taking pictures of the most? This is a decent lens for static objects in decent light, but if you find yourself in low light situations this lens just doesnt have the light gathering of a high quality lens.

Personally I would like to have 2 lenses with an f/2.8 aperture, but those also cost more so that must be taken into consideration.
