I was amazed when this lens came. It originally wasn't what I expected. I was expecting more of a lens like a professional camera. However, this lens is amazing. It is an instant magnification to what you are looking at. It takes a little to get used to. You have to zoom it in or you will have a black outline around your photos. After you adjust to that, it zooms really well.
The lens is heavy duty. I was amazed at how high quality it was. It comes with a lens cover and cover for the back of the lens.
