When I first tested this lens is came out very well. I really wanted it to be true too because it's a nice fast, sharp & reasonably priced standard zoom. This could have been great for me, as it would have many others, but later I realised that I had left the camera in APS-C crop mode. I came back to test it once more hoping that it came out just as well, but unfortunately it was not meant to be. It's not terrible, it's just not as good as it was as it was. If you're curious - the score for crop mode was 7.8/10.
