Quoting Mom of 2 Monkeys:" LMFAO! My friend Marcie told me to try n shoot the moon tonight. So I think I might try that. Is this lens more for far away shots? Sorry Im not too knowledgeable with lenses and what they do yet lol"
It's pretty versatile. On your camera, it won't be ideal for indoors, but great for outside, getting pictures of the kids. It should be fine for portraits and what not, just will have to be backed up a little further than you would with your other lens (assuming you have an 18-55mm kit lens)
but at 250mm, it's a pretty far zoom
