Maybe I'm over looking it, but I've yet to see good specs on the lens that comes with the outfit. I know the max aperture is 3.5, but what is the minimum ... f8? Any ideas?

Thanks

I could be very wrong.. but I thought that the 3.5-4.5 was over the entire range of the lens, so at it's widest it was 3.5 and at it's longest it was 4.5.. I felt that was why a lens with a fixed, lower value is better than having the same value as the lowest point in the range...

or am I the one totally confused about the whole thing...

Thanks guys. It does appear correct that the lens is 3.5 at the wide and 4.5 on the zoom ... and thanks to Ed, we now know the lens can stop down to at least f22. Doesn't seem like too bad of a lens.

Has Steve given any indication when his review will be posted? Inquiring minds want to know.
