Thanks Chris, I can't remember the actual focal length, but it wasn't full zoom, I tried quite a few and was just disappointed by what I was getting, since I'd always used film and never spent heaps on a lens I presumed it was because it wasn't a full frame sensor but the more I looked in to it I thought it must be the lens and this has therefore put me off that lens.
I think I'll stay away from the super zoom after your advice.
Do you really need 2.8 to get backgrounds out of focus, won't F4 manage it reasonably well. My old pentax film slr only has a 3.5 lens on it and that does it fine ( although I guess it is in effect full frame... ).
If in doubt just nod and smile !
