np. You might also want to check out used 17-50 2.8s. They can go for as little as $300. Much better optics and build quality than this thing. Also I might be selling mine to upgrade to a 17-50 (my 18-50 2.8-4.5)
Also again, lol, look at the sigma 17-70 2.8-4. It's faster at 50mm and zooms further. It's only $300-400.
I wish I hadnt gotten the 18-50, I always wish i had gotten the 17-70 sicne now i need something to fill in the 50-70 gap (thinking maybe gonna buy a used 28-135 now for that extra zoom).
"take deoxyribonucleic acid for example. Sound's impressive right? Ever see what happens when you put something in acid? It dissolves. If our bodies were all full of that acid, we'd all dissolve. So much for the theory of evolution."
