reviewswhat are people saying

"I use this lens on the D3s and it is absolutely amazing with this camera for sports. There are many other uses besides sports, but all I can say is the sharpness, fast focus and image quality is the best I have ever seen independent of cost. There are many other more technical reviews out there so I wanted to tell you from a real-world perspective that this lens will produce top-notch professional results for any level (pro, college, high school, etc) day after day."

"If you want the best possible lens at this focal length then this is the best money can buy. I think from a value perspective this lens with the various tele-converters give you the most coverage and value for the money. I do also shoot a 70-200mm f/2.8 with and without the tele-converters with very good results, however the sharpness with this lens as expected is beyond comparison."

"Heavy lens, but can be hand held with not much difficulty."
