reviewswhat are people saying

"I love this lens, bought it primarily for wildlife. Tack sharp images of antelope while braced against nothing but the frame of my car window (with the car engine running!) at ISO 100 with Optical Stabilization turned on. "

"Very good picture quality (especially at f/8 and smaller) and optical stabilization. "

" The weight is the only drawback, as it took me some time to get used to it."
