Just looking into maybe getting this lens. I have heard many good reports about it, and very few bad (does not always focus correctly, sometimes gets confused). I know its not as good as an L lens, but they are way out of my budget. The reviews I have read are quite old (early 2007), so is it still one of the best value lenses in todays £150 range for a walk about zoom lens or should I be looking at something else? I am not too bothered about wide angle at the moment, but will most likely get a nifty fifty for that later. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
