Looks like a lens to play with - not bad at all! The moon shot is pretty good, but thought the curtains gave a better idea of lens quality.

Thanks Harriet. I like the fact that I can adjust the Aperture on lens. The DA's seem to want to block you from shooting in some low light conditions. This one will when you set the lens to A mode. But if you set the camera to Aperture priority and adjust the aperture on lens then you can happily shoot in a pitch black room. It don't care.
