You definitely have to use a tripod and keep it very still.The quality of the picture was not great, but it was what I expected from an inexpensive lens.For what I would use it for it works perfectly fine.I don’t think it will be very effective for action shots because it doesn’t do well with any movement; although, the description says action/sports shots…I haven’t tried, but with any movement the picture blurred quite a bit.It should be used for those wanting a closer shot of stills that doesn’t mind a little less in quality, but a lot less in price.
