"Amazing very nice lens."

"The OS works excellent. Clear at even 200mm and nice bokeh."

"I have is the lens hood - it fits loosely so I have to be careful when putting the lens in and out of the camera bag to make sure the hood is clicked-on securely, also when turning the polarizer I have to be careful not to unscrew the hood as well."
