It's not a bad lens for its price, if you are looking for a budget telephoto zoom lens to go with your 18-55mm kit lens. Just don't expect miracles from it afterall it is a budget lens. Price should be ~S$370 at the popular camera haunts, if you want cheaper you can try second hand on clubsnap b&s.

Whether it should be the next lens you buy depends more on what and how you shoot. Find out what you find to be the most common shortcoming of your kit lens, then buy the right kind of lens that will handle that.

It's an ok general purpose lens. The only inconvenience comes when I'm on vacation and have to consistently switch lenses.
