reviewswhat are people saying

"I rented this lens for the NCAA Lacrosse finals and it didn't disappoint. It was extremely quick with focusing, even with a 1.4x teleconverter on the lens."

"This is one Super Len’s…the tack sharpness though out all the stop’s is fantastic. It is quick to focus and great in low light situations."

"The only drawbacks are the cost, weight and lack of a true lens cap. The Big Tuna is my #1 lens…"
