ReviewsGreat for what it is, February 10, 2010
This does not take pictures like $30,000 glass does, but then it isn't $30,000. It's about the same physical size as the shorter kit lens, and takes very similar pictures at its widest zoom as the other kit lens does at its narrowest - the wider kit lens may have very slightly more vivid colors when put side by side, but the difference is pretty subtle.
For a low price, though, you can take perfectly good pictures of stuff that is further away, with a much tighter depth of focus, yadda yadda.
Of course, the apperature's maximum open isn't very wide, so in low light conditions it's not ideal, but I took, for instance, a bunch of great pictures of street lights in fog, and the things they were illuminating. So unless you want pictures of fast moving things in low light, you're probably fine even there.
In THAT case, you either need to turn a light on, spend a bit of money on a flash, a diffuser, and perhaps a flash extension cord.... or spend a whole lot more money on much more expensive glass.
