THIS LENS IS GREAT FOR...
This lens is a great choice for a variety of genres including landscapes, portraits, street photography, cityscapes, and travel.
It's lightweight, and compact. With the moisture resistance we can feel confident heading out on a drizzly PNW day, paired with their vibration compensation, we have a powerhouse of a lens that won't break the bank!About the Author
