reviewswhat are people saying

"Excellent lens for sport and fast action. The external zooming makes it a bit fragile if you're shooting in crowds or potentially damaging environments."

"Instant focusing when used with e3. Great color retention."

"It can hunt a lot in low light on the E 620 but at least the manual focus is really effective."
