reviewswhat are people saying

"I've used this lens now for about 1200 shots of lacrosse games taken in the evening/night under the lights, bright sun and cloudy days. Great resolution when the focus is spot on."

"This is a universal lens for my purposes. I like it. I can take it anywhere. Survived my trip through europe so it is durable."

bhphotovideo.com

"The size and weight are...formidable, though. The tension on the zoom is inconsistent--quite slack at the beginning and end of the range and more resistant from ~100-150mm."
