reviewswhat are people saying

"I have used this lens extensively for its versatility providing me one lens for on the move photography. This lens allows you to transition from near object to those targets of opportunity at a distance rather quickly."

bhphotovideo.com

"I keep this lens on my camera almost all the time. It has the range I need for photos of the grandkids in the livingroom to the planes in the skies at a recent air show. It gives me sharp images and, in bright light, extremely fast autofocus"

bhphotovideo.com

"That said, the lens is not very tough and the zoom and VC mechanisms are very sensitive to minor knocks and shaking (as can occur on rough roads in game parks)."
