A little girl was feeding the Koi in the fish pond at the Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park, Rochester, NY. The picture is deceptive. These are very large fish. The larger ones are about 18-22" long. This was taken with the Sigma 18-50mm f3.5-5.6. I have found this lens to produce very high quality images. The contrast and resolution are quite remarkable, especially for the price range this lens is in.

Processing applied: I lightened it a little with Olympus Master 2.0 and resized/resharpened. Cloned out the edge of the pond.
Various: I think the Sigma 18-50mm f3.5 is well worth the money for anyone on a budget. I like it's compactness compared to the kit lenses. I also notice it focuses a bit faster than the kit lenses.
